North Carolina-based artist Frequency has an appealing voice and works hard to make sure that he delivers a variety of different tones and textures with it. On “Losing Myself” he sets methodical, almost military-style verses against melodic (vaguely gospel) backup singers and it’s a cool combination. “Turnpikes” generates a dark, aggressive energy featuring insistent group-chants. Our favorite might be “Steph Curry” where a moody, dense, desolate-sounding synthesizer fog sets the mood for Frequency to really display his skills at the mic. No, the lyrics aren’t especially new (the rapper’s monologue is piled up with plenty of boasts, jeers and threats) but his punchline is memorable: “Bitch, I’m Curry!”
