this song is good (altho it just makes me wanna listen to liberian girl again) but i wasn't really feeling the few others i've heard from the album. there's something about him as a performer that is not clicking with me.

this is my fave thing about this guy:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Test_Icicles

In February 2006, the band announced they were splitting up.[1] In an interview with NME in March 2006, Hynes claimed that "We were never, ever that keen on the music. I understand that people liked it, but we personally, er, didn't.".

on first listen the first half is some of his best work ever, especially Orlando, but it falls off by the end.

ufo, Sunday, 26 August 2018 03:24 (three months ago) Permalink

His albums always take awhile for me to really, really like. Always love what he's trying to do, but the choruses don't immediately stick

production is indeed nice, but i feel like it seriously lacking in hooks compared to the previous two

marcos, Monday, 27 August 2018 13:31 (three months ago) Permalink

First listen was more vibes than hooks, but obviously I think I need to pay close attention to the lyrics. Not sure I'm down with all the spoken word interview interludes, but there weren't many of them, iirc.

his records sound so good though in the summer, it was like 81 and humid at 8am today and this was so pleasant to hear

marcos, Monday, 27 August 2018 13:33 (three months ago) Permalink

one month passes...

On Instagram Dev Hynes called the Blood Orange gig I just saw Friday night a "DREAM SHOW IN DC..." Nitpicky me was intermittently impressed with his songcraft,arrangements, guitar playing, & dancing; but (maybe it was the microphone & sound system & not him) at times his voice wasn't strong enough; many songs felt like '90s r'n'b homages but without the hooks, he didn't play the piano enough (which he sounds great on). I feel like he's on the verge of eventually doing something consistently great but he's not quite there yet.

Oh on Instagram, Dev also says he composed a new 75 minute score for a dance piece by the Chicago-based Hubbard Street Dance Company that premiered in Chicago recently. He says it's his "longest classical piece yet." It's a collaboration called "There was Nothing" with impressive Memphis juke dancer Lil Buck Da Legend and Third Coast Percussion.

oh excellent, must listen. truly enjoyed him showing off his gear and his late 80s Manhattan loft in the video for that song.

like most of his albums i feel like the last one features a few really strong songs interspersed with lots of texture and contextual production vibes. always feels a bit uneven, although i really dig the sounds and spaces he creates with them

yeah i think it earns its digressiony qualities bc the swirls of melody and structure that appear and disappear are, individually, pretty much always commanding and interesting. (imo, again, i found his previous two solo records, despite having more strictly bound "songs," far less imaginative.) it's a pretty filmic record, tracks run into each other like a cut or dissolve between frames. he's less hemmed in rhythmically here too
