Blood Orange “Coastal Grooves” Stream + Yours Truly “Other People’s Poetry” Mixtape

Blood Orange is the latest incarnation of the musical chameleon that is Dev Hynes. The first impression I had of Blood Orange was via his track “Dinner” a very tasteful nod to 90s RnB but that was not a barometer of what his full-length “Coastal Grooves” would sound like. Instead “Coastal Grooves” is a homage to 90s Alternative rock with its heavily guitar-driven songs. I particularly love how Dev uses percussive and cyclical guitar riffs to create a hypnotic and apathetic 90s vibe. “Forget It” with its pieced together guitar solo, “S’Cooled” with its early Phoenix-wannabe-RnB groove and “The Complete Knock” with its galloping bassline are all highlight tracks off the LP.

Your Truly presents a mixtape compiled by Dev himself featuring some songs that seem to have influenced his latest sound, listen and download it over @

Chromeo x Mayer Hawthorne

Whoa whoa this is way too smooth for the web. Bravo Mayer Hawthorne for bringing back the ways of Yacht Rock. I see what you did there Mr. Hawthorne with the little musical allusions to The Spinner’s “I’ll Be Around” and Steely Dan “Do It Again”. I know your secrets…

Joe Goddard : Gabriel

Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard embraces his UK House side with his new track “Gabriel”. Everything about this track is so “UK” with its emotional broken 2-step beat and murky bassline with an angelic female pouring her heart out onto the dancefloor.
