Man, somebody needs to give Earl Sweatshirt a hug. Earl (and Frank Ocean) has always been the most sensitive member of the Odd Future crew -- though it's looking more and more likely that Odd Future has more or less ceased to be a cohesive unit -- and on his last record, I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside, Sweatshirt's self-loathing and angst hit full stride in some brutal self-excoriation. And the lurching, noxious, animated video for "Off Top" -- a standout from the last album -- continues that theme. Earl has some demons to work out, and, thankfully, he has enough skill on the mic to exorcise those demons to powerful effect.
