Blood Orange's Freetown Sound
Dev Hynes' third record as Blood Orange, 2016's Freetown Sound, is a warm and impassioned personal document of black culture and history, using samples, collaborations and a mix of genres in his trademark collage-style approach to create a multi-layered story of the historically oppressed, finding strength in community and sounding like the coolest lost mixtape. TRACKS PLAYED: Blood Orange - 'By Ourselves' Blood Orange - 'Augustine' Blood Orange - 'Chance' Blood Orange - 'Best to You' Blood Orange - 'With Him' Blood Orange - 'E.V.P.' Blood Orange - 'But You' Blood Orange - 'Desirée' Blood Orange - 'Hands Up' Blood Orange - 'Hadron Collider' Blood Orange - 'Juicy 1-4' Blood Orange - 'Thank You' Blood Orange - 'Better Numb' Like a book club for music nerds, For The Record takes a deep dive into a different album each week that we think is worthy of your love and attention.
