Music Review: Blood Orange - Freetown Sound

Blood Orange Freetown Sound [Domino; 2016] Rating: 4/5 F reetown Sound, like the Sierra Leone locale which it takes its name from, the birthplace of Devonté Hynes’s father, is a half-truth of a name, like America: free in theory but questionably in practice. Show More Summary
