Lightspeed Champion
Lightspeed Champion, aka Dev Hynes, has released his new album, Life is Sweet! Nice to Meet You, via Domino Records.

The record is a collection of twelve pop songs, two instrumental intermissions and one piano etude, colored by a palette that draws on baroque 60's pop, Girl Group harmonies, classical music and even musical theatre.

Dev, along with producer and mixer Ben Allen (Animal Collective, Gnarls Barkley), has assembled an eclectic grab-bag of influences: joltingly 70's guitar and synth sounds, classical piano, Serge Gainsbourg, Greek choruses shouting reprisals, Todd Rundgren, and at least one ukelele-driven moment.
