The Internet is Syd the Kyd, better known as the DJ of Odd Future, on vocals and Matt Martian handling production. The past couple weeks have seen the duo release tracks “Love Song -1” and “They Say” to significant praise. Now, The Internet is ready to announce the release of their debut album, Purple Naked Ladies, coming at the end of this year from Odd Future Records. Today, the group releases the video for “Cocaine” as a special Halloween treat via Odd Future’s Tumblr, featuring Left Brain and directed By Matt Alonzo. Although the video shows two lesbian lovers snorting a bump, the visuals are a more psychedelic portrayal of either shrooms or LSD.

The physical version featuring 3 bonus tracks and exclusive art and packaging will be in stores Jan 17th. Digital release tracklisting below.

This is a historic shift in pop music. Since celebrating the 20th anniversary of Nirvana’s Nevermind this year and a bleak economic forecast, lo-fi music has become increasingly trendy. We have seen this in rock and electronic music, and how it seems to also be affecting both hip-hop and pop.

Odd Future have been in the news all year long. They have started their own record label, sold out of their first ever book, and just this past weekend were accused of assaulting a photographer.
Another sample of their record just appeared online, it sounds totally different than anything Odd Future related. Check it out here.
