Lightspeed Champion is the brain musings of Devonte Hynes, former Test Icicles member. Having only heard a minimal amount of work by Test Icicles, this is definitely different and fans of the former will be in for a rude awakening. His music kind of reminds me of less sad Bright Eyes and overall a bit more fun. Just plain good acoustic guitar driven indie music. His first album released from Domino Records, Falling Off The Lavender Bridge, was produced in Omaha by Mike Mogis, Saddle Creek producer. Devonte Hynes keeps a relatively well updated blog on his official page and I can mention is quite adorable, writing about myspace views or how much he enjoys the movie, Cloverfield. The album is a great listen and is quite unexpected how quick it will grow on you. Listen to a track down below.
