Dev Hynes has followed a typical music trek, born in Houston, from Guyana, living in London and recording in Omaha, Nebraska. The kids call him Lightspeed Champion. I call him good. The name is apparently from a series of comic strips he wrote in his math books as a teenager. His new album (produced by Saddle Creek producer Mike Mogis), set to be released Super Tuesday, February 5th, in the States is called Falling off the Lavender Bridge. Hynes has recently posted a video for the first single, “Tell Me What It’s Worth” on Youtube, in which he’s walking the streets of his current hometown, London. He also has the entire album streaming at his Myspace site. Take a listen. It’s good stuff. I know, you’re thanking me for the insightful review.
