Frank Ocean – In My Room
Frank Ocean didn’t show up to Camp Flog Gnaw cause he was in his room……just kidding. This one is a slow creepin’ cosmic hip hop tune that slowly wraps itself around your brain before it consumes you.

Throw on your best bass face for this one from Anderson.Paak’s live band Free Nationals featuring the talents of the Internet’s Syd. Seriously take off your shoes at work and play this one on speaker.
