Dev Hynes, Please Bring Back Lightspeed Champion
Looking at Setlist.FM, Lightspeed Champion’s last show was on 1/2/2011. That’s 2,998 days ago. Dev Hynes retired Lightspeed Champion to go all in on his excellent Blood Orange project, but it’s okay to miss Lightspeed Champion.
2008’s Falling Off The Lavender Bridge, is an extremely enjoyable album with songs like: “Dry Lips”, “Galaxy of the Lost”, and the almost 10 minute jam, “Midnight Surprise”. Lightspeed Champion was a guitar driven project by Dev – being much different from his dance and R&B focused project, Blood Orange.
I went ahead and did the world a favor with this ask. When Dev brings Lightspeed Champion back, feel free to thank me.
