Blood Orange

Love Blood Orange aka Dev Hynes. Other monikers he goes by include Lightspeed Champion and Test Icicles. Don't love the last two so much but the former appeases my angst-ridden soul. Who knew mixing acoustics and funk could sound so good. Who knew the boy with the cowboy hat could deliver such varied soundscapes.

He even knows B-B-Beyonce!

Check his Blood Orange Tumbler and check his 2011 album 'Coastal Grooves'. One of the best albums thus far. Interviewing him for LeCool London was a bloody nightmare but all has been forgiven now that ''Coastal Grooves' has come into play.

I am more than prone to monologues; however, this is solely due to the manner in which they compliment a witty anecdote and their ability to resemble concrete evidence when it is so obviously lacking. I often wish I could emulate that aloof character who coolly stands in the corner smiling mysteriously as if she has a secret. However, I fear resisting the temptation to involve myself in other people’s conflicts and responding through body language rather than verbose banter may come across as contrived and arrogant. And, I am not willing to take that chance.
