8/10 Clinton Staff review, 10 December 2010

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 collaboration between Lightspeed Champion and Van Dyke Parks. Woah... stop there a minute.....Van Dyke Parks? The Beach Boys, Byrds & Joanna Newsom collaborator/general all round genius.....with the guy from Test Icicles? Incredible. As you may suspect it's baroque Autumn-hued pop that could have come straight off Van Dyke Parks' complex-pop 1968 debut 'Song Cycle'. The arrangements are amazing and Devonte Hynes does a decent with the vocals. That said, this kind of music is not to everyone's taste ''music for old ladies' I once heard someone say. I'd also say that I'd prefer this to any of Hynes previous work which has always been more about style than substance.
