Stunning 2008 debut album from London based Dev Hynes, AKA Lightspeed Champion. Recorded in Omaha by Saddle Creek's resident producer, Mike Mogis, the album is a semi-acoustic Country-Rock Folk-Pop gem that bathes in Americana. Layered with ambitious instrumentation, from strings, to cello, oboe, pedal steel, clarinet and flute, it's a gentler more contemplative sound; light years away from the Noise-Punk Metal of Dev's previous act, Test Icicles. Backed by an informal band of multi-instrumentalists Nate Walcott and Mike Mogis, the Faint's drummer Clark Baechle, and guest vocalist Emmy the Great - plus moonlighting members of Cursive and Tilly And the Wall - Dev was able to furnish his gently humorous, open-hearted songs with an unaffected warmth. Domino.
