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.".

This album is good. I think the Pitchfork review way back when is pretty OTM slotting it in alongside the D'Angelo and Kendrick. It's not about songs as such but moods and themes. I think.

Josh in Chicago, Friday, 23 September 2016 15:00 (two years ago) Permalink

It's growing on me a bit, but still wish some of the songs tunes were as impressive as the moods, themes and what he seems to be going for.

curmudgeon, Tuesday, 27 September 2016 16:43 (two years ago) Permalink

Saw him last week.I took a friend who went in blind, and at first all the '80s style appropriation turned him off, but by the end he was pretty convinced. It's just delivered as this weird contrast of a really talented, compelling, confident guy playing and singing like he's still insecure and trying to figure things out, as an aesthetic, which comes off a little off-kilter and incomplete. But again, by design.

oof i cringed a little when i read that review, seemed like such a cheap and easy critical move to do just bc of some political vocal samples. i love this album but i really don't see it in the same vein as the BM or TBAP, it is very different, honestly i don't even view BM in the same vein as TBAP other than major albums w/ some persona/political themes by black americans?

because of my friend getting a babysitting call she can't refuse, I have come into a free ticket to this guy's performance of his 'score to the easternsports art installation' tonight at the whitney. I know literally nothing about him or his music. IDK sometimes these very random opportunities are great.

his eye is on despair-o (Jon not Jon), Friday, 3 February 2017 16:35 (one year ago) Permalink

That was fucking cool. Basically a continuous ~1 hr solo instrumental piece starting on piano then moving to synth then back to piano then to EWI then finishing on piano, with backing tracks but not very many of them. Reminiscences at various times of McCoy Tyner, Reich, Penguin Cafe, and Vangelis (massive sawtooth sound controlled by EWI in a slow ecstatic solo, the high point of the performance)

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
