Cool Aid: R&B edition

I can't stop listening to the new Frank Ocean mixtape/album. (Check out the amazing Swim Good)

Less amazing, but still quite good, the new Weeknd mixtape. Both albums feature a bunch of unusual rock and indie rock samples. Frank Ocean samples Coldplay, the Eagles, and Radiohead (sort of)... the Weeknd sample a couple of Beach House songs (another one of my current favourite bands). If you like drugged out psychedelic soul, check them both out. I don't think I've enjoyed an R&B album this much since the last proper Aaliyah album.
