LIGHTSPEED CHAMPION 'LIFE IS SWEET! NICE TO MEET YOU' STREAM

Lightspeed Champion | 15/02/10

Stream the new Lightspeed Champion album Life Is Sweet! Nice To Meet You.

Dev Hynes returns with an epic collection of twelve pop songs, two instrumental intermissions and one piano étude, set for release on 15th February 2010.

Lightspeed’s early leaning towards American country dressings is traded here for a palette that draws on classical music and even musical theatre. Producer and mixer Ben Allen (Animal Collective, Gnarls Barkley) assembles the eclectic grab-bag of influences: joltingly ‘70s guitar and synth sounds, classical piano, Greek choruses shouting reprisals, and at least one ukelele-driven moment.
