Review: Cherry Bomb and a new app from Tyler, the Creator
Odd Future fans are thrilled with all the new projects that are entering the market. Some of many, Earl Sweatshirt’s new album has just been made public, Frack Ocean’s follow-up work for Channel Orange has just dropped and that is not all! A new themed app marked Golf Wang has just aired on iOS.
The app has quickly gained more than 1000. Tyler hasn’t missed a chance to talk about his new “toy”, saying that it’s practically a place where his brain just goes crazy, with no censorship happening. It’s filled with all kinds of pictures, videos, articles – a lot of his skills put into short cartoon films – and it will soon contain a special radio, dedicated to his style, called “Radio Golf”. Some of his favourite movies will also be available for fans to watch through his app, at no cost. If you sign up on their website, you get two months of free usage of the app and also the first number of Tyler’s magazine. After those two months, fans will have to pay $5 each following 30 days.
Cherry Bomb, Tyler’s new album is not very far from his app. It features the same crazy ideas that he has gotten us used to with his previous 3 albums – if, of course, we count his 2009 album that was available only online. Many believe that despite the fact that all his albums seem like a mess of words and pieces of thoughts all mixed up together to a pretty catchy beat, Tyler has actually planned a trilogy all along; three puzzle pieces. The artist, also using a lot of other alter egos, such as Wolf Haley, Ace and Tron Cat, has just release nearly one hour of fizzy sonics and lush rhythms. Basically, if you like Tyler, you will love Cherry Bomb.
