Blood Orange
Negro Swan

Devonte Hynes has explored punk in his teens with Test Icicles, orchestral pop under the name of Lightspeed Champion, and as Blood Orange, perhaps his most successful and critically acclaimed project, he has made four albums underpinned by R’n’B and electronica....view item »

Lightspeed Champion
Bye Bye

Ignore the first track! 'Til I Die', by the Beach Boys is, in its original form, probably the best song of all time and is all but uncoverable. The song is more about textures and tones rather than a melody as such, therefore everyone who tries to attempt it buggers the thing up. Try, instead, tracks two, three and four which form a collaboratio...view item »

Lightspeed Champion
Life Is Sweet Nice To Meet You

I really can't take Lightspeed Champion too seriously but his new album has managed to encourage both the appearance of a deep frown & a rigourous grimace on my usually serene features. He was in that godawful London fashion band Titsticles (or whatever the hell that particular musical abomination was called) He's got this kind of cringe worthy...view item »

Lightspeed Champion
Marlene

Lightspeed Champion is back. The former testicle is back for a 2nd time to see if he can make things better with his Costello ish brand of pop. On 'Marlene', the first thing I noticed is that it doesn't feature him standing looing serious holding chickens and that. In fact he's gone for a rather pleasant line drawing of a mountain range. very ...view item »

Lightspeed Champion
Galaxy Of The Lost/ Your Heart (Semifinalists Garageband Cover 2006)

For some reason Domino have decided to re release Galaxy of The Lost by Lightspeed Champion. It doesn't seem too long since it was released the 1st time? Maybe time is moving too slowly (or quicker..... I'm too tired to work it out now). Anyway this is the best tune the guy has done. I'll admit it's a winner but it's been played so much in the offi...view item »

Lightspeed Champion
Falling Off The Lavender Bridge

Lightspeed Champion: 'Falling Off The Lavender Bridge' (Domino) In which Domino indulge the former Testiscicles frontman Dev Hynes with his debut long player that may not delight the indie faithful, but please the folk loving convertees. His songwriting skills are very much in evidence and this is backed up with some clever arrangements a...view item »

Lightspeed Champion
Tell Me What It's Worth/ Tristan

Lightspeed Champion's third single 'Tell Me What It's Worth' is just in on Domino. For those of you that have been on another planet this is Dev Hynes' solo project (previously of Test Icicles). I can't listen to this guy without thinking of Elvis Costello since Phil made a comparison. It doesn't really do much for me. He has his formula and he sti...view item »

Lightspeed Champion
Midnight Surprise

Lightspeed Champion: 'Midnight Surprise' (Domino) A lilac coloured 10" from the former Test Icicles man takes in some country tinged whiny boy indie fair. The man is obviously very talented, if I had the time to actually take in what he's singing about with his aching vocal acrobatics I'd probably be able to deduce what's fronting the largely ...view item »

Lightspeed Champion
Galaxy of The Lost

That dude from the Test Icicles is back with a new band called Lightspeed Champion. What surprised me was how much this didn't really annoy me. It's not even vaguely a bit irritating and in fact I'd go as far as to say it's a decent tune. It's the spit of Elvis Costello but that's no bad thing. Great sleeve as well with some dude holding a chicken....view item »

Lightspeed Heat (Whirlwind Heat & Lightspeed Champion)
How Do You Do?/ My Dreams

LIGHTSPEED HEAT is Whirlwind Heat and some guy was in Test Icicles (oh yes they don't go away). It's kind of like early Sub Pop stuff and I'm immediately thinking it sounds like Nirvana and Screaming Trees. There's also bits of Pavement in there. Don't be fooled by these big names mind you... this is still extremely shit. How Do You Do is a limited...view item »
