Dev Hynes is a man of many talents, having dabbled in musical excursions as diverse as skronky dance punk (Test Icicles) and oddball folksiness (Lightspeed Champion). He’s also a producer and writer and has worked with artists like Florence + The Machine and Sky Ferreira. As Blood Orange, Hynes slips into something sleek, sexy, and transgressive, with a collection inspired by the film Paris Is Burning, a touching 1990 document of transvestite club culture in New York City. Coastal Grooves is a beautiful thing, with a hint of sadness and a palpable desire lurking under the sheen of ultra-cool confidence. The single “Sutphin Boulevard” is a slow, late-night strut, with a stripped-down ambience that glitters with spiraling, metallic guitar flakes and a terse snare cracking out a slow, catwalk-worthy backbeat. Hynes’ guitar morphs throughout Coastal Grooves as a synth might, taking on various forms as the song calls for them. The midway point of “Forget It” breaks open with a bona fide guitar solo, and on “Champagne Coast” he coaxes an Asian flavor out of the instrument.
