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.
