Once the third-man-in on the short-lived TEST ICICLES, DEVONTE HYNES has now dubbed himself LIGHTSPEED CHAMPION and is just on the cusp of releasing his first album under that moniker -- FALLING OFF THE LAVENDER BRIDGE.
At various times sounding like a dead ringer for MARK EITZEL ("Galaxy of the Lost"), ED HARCOURT ("Tell Me What It's Worth"), and/or MATT POND PA ("Dry Lips"), Mr. Hynes mines a decidedly laid-back, folk-pop vibe.
