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 @
