The year: 1984. The place: Detroit, Michigan.
An intimate account of suffering personal relationships and uncertainty about sexuality; a glimpse into a frantic mind where incoherent thoughts fly in every direction; a criticism of the music industry; a childhood memory; a desperate confession of responsibility and coping: All are achieved by BROCKHAMPTON’s latest album “iridescence.”
“Whose University? Our University."

“Eighth Grade” opens with an image of a screen, blurry with the resolution of a webcam. Kayla Day (Elsie Fisher) speaks directly to the camera.
In his fourth studio album as Blood Orange, British-born Devonté Hynes delves into what is is like to be a black swan in a society that continues to place outsider labels on people of colour, as well as those who are queer.
