There are quite a few good ideas on Angel's Pulse; unfortunately they aren't fleshed out enough, nor do they reinforce one another.
Blood Orange's latest is a dreamy, sensual, and holistic album with a message.
Blood Orange makes an ambitious return with Freetown Sound.
The latest release from songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Devonte Hynes, a.k.a. Blood Orange, engages in some of the most excruciating 80s revivalism I've heard all year.
This is a terrific video for the track "I'm Sorry We Lied" by Blood Orange, which is one of the catchier tracks from the project's debut album, Costal Grooves. The song itself is nice, with post-punk drums staying throughout the entire song, giving it a very distinct pulse. The surf guitar phrases are pretty dramatic, too. Though the vocals and guitar are mostly sparse, but are welcome additions when they join the mix. If you're familiar with Blood Orange, this song will fit right in with what you know of them, and if you're not familiar, this track is a great place to jump in.
Singer-songwriter Devonté Hynes drops and picks up musical projects like bad habits. His latest is Blood Orange, which has a new record out on Domino Recs titled Coastal Grooves. I've received a lotta requests to touch down on this one, and I could see why. Some of the grooves backing the tracks on this LP are pretty undeniable. That's especially true of the track featured in this review, "Sutphin Boulevard." Find an audio review for the track below. What do you think of this track? Love it? Hate it? Why?
