odd future's r&b crooner delivers a startling studio album of fresh nu-soul & hip hop, with a little help from andre 3000 & john mayer.

showcasing his knack for riveting storytelling & arrangement, this cracking record will appeal to fans of everyone from janelle monae to stevie wonder, jamie lidell, d'angelo & kanye west. Frank has long laboured behind the curtain - writing for Brandy, Justin Bieber & John Legend - but after hooking up with L.A.'s notorious Odd Future collective, he self-released 2011's 'nostalgia, ULTRA.' mixtape & soon established himself as a star in his own right. "swings from Stevie-style keyboard breeziness to 1990s bap&B to mystic psych rock to crunching 8-bit funk without thinking twice" 9.5/10 - pitchfork.
