Review: Frank Ocean @ TAP 1

Finally! After a close call last year and several missed opportunities, Frank Ocean finally made it to Copenhagen Thursday night. Naturally, both the crowd and Ocean seemed eager to hear and play last year's 'Channel Orange'. Over the course of 90 minutes, we go to hear most of his excellent full length, save for some forgettable interludes (sorry, John Mayer) and 'Fertilizer,' which it is hard to imagine anyone complaining about.

Review: Koreless - 'Yugen'
