This week we review Cupid Deluxe, an impressive new effort from seasoned producer Devonte Hynes. This is Hynes’ second LP under the moniker Blood Orange, but he has released other music through the bands Test Icicles and Lightspeed Champion. Hynes is the also the songwriting and production force behind Solange’s album True and Sky Ferreira’s hit “Everything is Embarrassing.” Cupid Deluxe, released on Domino Records on November 14, is a compositional tour-de-force that somehow remains very modern while touching upon the nostalgia of Prince, the ’80s, and R&B -among other elements.
