Blood Orange – Champagne CoastBy Craig Smith • Aug 17th, 2011 • Category: Downloads
Released last week and reviewed here was Coastal Grooves by Blood Orange, the latest musical project by ex-Test Icicle and Lightspeed Champion Dev Hynes. A lo-fi urban-sounding synth-pop record, Coastal Grooves has Hynes playing the Prince card and relishing the role, producing something fresh and unexpected. Originally appearing on two 12″ singles, you can listen to tracks remixed from the album by In Flagranti, Krystal Klear, Bottin and Bicep. But if you join the Blood Orange mailing list Krystal Klear’s smooth reworking of album closer “Champagne Coast” comes free.
