Hip-hop collective Odd Future Wolf Gang Will Kill Them All is slowly trying to take over the world. First Tyler, the Creator, Hodgy Beats and crew burst onto the scene. Then came solo albums, including Frank Ocean’s, and a TV show, Loiter Squad. And now, the arrival of individual groups from within the collective—like DJ, engineer and singer (and lone Odd Future female member) Syd tha Kyd paired with beat maker Matt Martians, together making soulful trip-hop as the Internet. Their debut album, Purple Naked Ladies (stream it, below), came out late last year. They began playing live in the middle of May, and as part of a brief East Coast swing this month, the Internet (above, doing “Lincoln” for lastereo.tv) play The Bowery Ballroom on Sunday night.

Odd Future—the short form of Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All—is a hip-hop collective, although that doesn’t properly explain the group’s appeal. More than a year ago, they emerged from Internet stardom and began performing their playful creations to small crowds. But with a combination of crude lyrics paired with sinister beats and ecstatic live shows, their profile rapidly rose. The tipping point came last February when two of the group’s members—de facto leader Tyler the Creator and supercharged menace Hodgy Beats—performed on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. And now at the height of their popularity (some of it sparked by Frank Ocean beefing with Don Henley), Odd Future play Hammerstein Ballroom tonight. —Jared Levy
