On the new material previewed during the show, flashes of introspection shone brightest. He opened one track berating his father for still not picking up the phone, and later placed his bank account flexing in context: “You’d think all this money would make a happier me, but I’m about as lonely as crackers and skinny models be.”

Tyler’s production is more progressive and exploratory this time around, digging even deeper into the kick drums and colorful chords of his idol/mentor Pharrell. The upcoming single “Bimmer,” a playful love-letter about sharing Slurpies with a girl he thinks is “chill,” accented with harmonies from Frank Ocean, felt especially precious between the snarls and growls that dominated his set.

Tyler, the Creator brought his tour to NYC on Saturday (3/23) for a packed show at Music Hall of Williamsburg, which he used to preview material from his upcoming album, Wolf (due out 4/2 via Odd Future Records). He brought out a number of fellow Odd Future members, including Taco, Jasper, Mike G, and most notably, Earl Sweatshirt, who has been in the spotlight for his own upcoming album lately.

A portion of the set was spent with just Tyler and Earl on stage, during which they played “Whoa” off Earl’s new album (which Tyler is featured on), in addition to earlier tracks the two rappers recorded together. When Tyler wasn’t previewing Wolf material, he reached back his early albums, Bastard and Yonkers, and also the early Odd Future mixtapes, like when he brought out former OF member Casey Veggies to do “Odd Toddlers” from 2008’s The Odd Future Tape.
