Out in the real world, US presidential campaigns, Brexit, and the Olympics have so far dominated 2016’s summer. In our neck of the woods, however, there are more pressing matters to contend with. Namely sneaker releases, omnipresent Kimye drama, and, oh yeah, that difficult Frank Ocean second album.
