Tyler, the Creator: Cherry Bomb
Paul Lester, Guardian, The, 30 June 2015
IT'S A GOOD TIME for Odd Future fans. Earl Sweatshirt's new album just dropped, Frank Ocean's follow-up to Channel Orange is imminent and there's even a Golf Wang app: "Tyler and his brain without restrictions and bullshit for $5 a month," as the latter has been marketed. That's also a pretty neat description of Cherry Bomb, the fourth album from Tyler, the Creator, if you count his online-only 2009 debut Bastard (and you should, because it's the purest distillation of his genius to date, from the Satie-in-hell of the title track onwards).
