• If you like Beck's 'Odelay,' listen to Knox Fortune.

    We talk about the song of the summer a lot, but Knox Fortune is about to release the album of the summer. His three singles thus far—"Torture," "Help Myself," and "Lil Thing"—have contained the kind of buoyant, buttery hooks unseen since the height of Beck's powers. 

    The excellent production we expected. Knox has been a part of Chance the Rapper's best work, and his other collaborators include Joey Purp, Vic Mensa, Towkio, theMIND—he's the beating heart of Chicago production. But we didn't expect Knox to be singing his ass off, and he knows how to use his voice like a young Mac DeMarco. His album is out in September, and we'll be ready.
