Frank Ocean returns to Apple Music 1 for another broadcast.
The seminal songwriting talent also holds down a regular role on Apple Music 1, with his picks offering insight into a reclusive talent. The latest episode of Homer Radio is online now, and it boasts a slot from Nick León.
On Apple Music 1, it’s dubbed an “after hours” office soundtrack, and in the accompanying note Frank Ocean paints an atmospheric portrait of the shutters coming down, the office workers departing, and the cleaning staff descending on the corridors.
“A one hour window into what plays around our office after hours. Twin towering line array speakers hold court. Someone’s vacuuming the carpets adding a distant layer of white noise to the sound. Security is pacing off some boredom while pretending to check the rooms and the safes on a rehearsed patrol.”
“A headset loaded with gadgetry helps a man who dons it to see, with its grids of light and lenses and loupes. Skulls on swivels make no sudden movements; helicoptering over paperwork, pens, blades, vices, precious metals and gemstones. Deluges of artificial light pour from small canisters like those dragons that spring from cylinders, like the never-ending ribbons pulled from a magicians ear.”
“Media volleys across short distances quickly on the net as Sorkin-like walk and talks travel down the hallways further and further from the sound. This is Homer Radio. An office soundtrack. Can’t you hear our ‘voice’? It’s not a dead line.”
