"None are older than 23, but their sensibilities are shockingly sculpted for a rap crew of any age -- an iconography forged on upside down cruci?xes, the occasional swastika, Kodachrome colors, skate culture and a slashing irony. They love bacon, cartoons and Eminem. They hate comedian Steve Harvey, school and dance rappers." [LA Times]Odd Future, who are appearing at Coachella this weekend, will play a string of East Coast dates in middle May including 5/13 at Highline Ballroom.
Odd Future recently posted a new song featuring Tyler The Creator with Domo Genesis. The track, "Heart of Gold", is reportedly "old as fuck" but you can check it out streaming below.
During SXSW photographer Brook Bobbins followed Odd Future to most of their Austin shows, as did an MTV cameraman. That includes the BrooklynVegan party at Barbarella. More pictures from that one, and from from Mellowhype's appearances at Club Deville (Fat Possum party), Odd Future's show at Scoot Inn (Thrasher Party), and Fader Fort, are all below. Those dates, song stream and MTV's video is down there too...
