Editors’ Notes

Singer, songwriter, and producer Dev Hynes’ follow-up to Coastal Grooves is a mix of hazy electronica, treading bass lines, and waves of stirring Prince-inspired vocals. From the stark midtempo rapping on “Clipped On” to the blog-buzzing harmonies of “Chamakay,” Cupid Deluxe is dimensional, hypnotizing, and amorphous. With contributors ranging from Chairlift’s Caroline Polachek to Dave Longstreth of Dirty Projectors, Cupid Deluxe is a distinct and mesmerizing album that proves Hynes is as talented at a soundboard as at a microphone.

Customer Reviews

Mr Hynes, I resume...

Dev has had my ears since Test Icicles steady on through Lightspeed Champion and straight up until Blood Orange because he's continued to reinvent what music can be with the purest energy. Upon a few full listens now I can honestly say I've never heard music like this, though I hesitate to call it just music. I've allowed it to envelop me like a smoke machine in an empty karaoke bar-- a flashy disorienting onslaught of unexpected lights and sounds that keeps me spinning to catch a reflection in the mirrored room so as to not miss a single moment. His eclectic attention-deficit synesthetic breath is breathed into every humid groove of this record, and thats nothing to do with the fact that he doesn't seem to sing as much on this one, its more than his voice coming though, it's a life of inspiration and experience being dictated by a clean guitar through a choir of voices to the wet snare rhythm of Mom's tape deck.

How about waiting until the album is actually released!

Yeah, Ummm, maybe you wanna wait until the actual album IS RELEASED for a constructive review instead of reviewing a snippet of ONE song. I know its sooo difficult to actually make a couple clicks to review the single, but come on, don't review an album more than a month before its released! Looks promising and love his work with Solange, so I'm optimistic!

soothing

love the single and album art work, guys voice is sexy

Formed: Brooklyn, NY

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '10s

After splitting with his band the Test Icicles and then recording as Lightspeed Champion, singer/songwriter Devonté Hynes switched up styles again, and began making music under the pseudonym Blood Orange. For Hynes, a cult favorite who had also worked on the side as a songwriter for some popular artists (including Florence + the Machine, Theophilus London, and Solange Knowles) and as a fashion consultant for Jay-Z's Rocawear, Blood Orange seemed like his most streamlined project, with R&B grooves...
