Frank Ocean’s “Lonny Breaux Collection”, Dozens of Early Tracks
Before Frank Ocean (a.k.a. Christopher Breaux) made his first splash last year with Nostalgia, Ultra, he recorded under the name Lonny Breaux. This collection cobbled together 63 tracks (61 of which I was able to find) recorded before Frank Ocean was Frank Ocean. The quality of these songs is alarmingly high, and while this collection dropped right around the time of the release of Nostalgia, Ultra it seems to have escaped the attention of just about everyone. I’ve just started parsing this myself, but I wanted to share it.
This is a little overwhelming, in the best possible way.
