Purple Naked Ladies
The debut from this Odd Future offshoot duo – beatmaker Matt Martians plus lone Odd Future female Syd the Kyd – is an endearingly scattershot take on spaced-out R&B, complete with drug fetishism and a load of moves apparently copped from the Neptunes. "Violet Nude Women" samples a college lecture about LSD over vaguely Middle Eastern psych soul, and "They Say" stretches snares and strings out to afternoon-nap tempo. The hook is Syd's surprisingly fluid crooning about girl-loses-girl heartache, sounding like a stoned Aaliyah for Rachel Maddow times.
