Blood Orange “Coastal Grooves” (2011)

October 11, 2011

That image on the cover might be confusing but this is not an album by Antony and the Johnsons. Blood Orange is Dev Hynes, a Texas-born British singer-songwriter. Coastal Grooves is mostly funk and while the opening three songs are totally joyous and, well, funky (especially Sutphin Boulevard and I’m Sorry We Lied), the record ultimately becomes tiresome and boring. You start to wonder how many times have you heard that song. So the electronic drone and some bleeps on The Complete Knock come as a nice surprise. Elsewhere, Blood Orange echoes Ennio Morricone which is cool.

hydrameter: 2/5
