Amoeba Review

08/16/2016

On his latest LP as Blood Orange, Dev Hynes dabbles in jazz, electronic, disco, and funk to create a graceful, moving exploration of race and systemic inequality. Named after the capital of his father's homeland, Sierra Leone, Freetown Sound also features contributions from Carly Rae Jepsen, Nelly Furtado, Empress Of, Debbie Harry, Ian Isaiah, and Ta-Nehisi Coates. Standouts include the poignant, hopeful "Augustine," the strangely haunting disco/funk track "E.V.P." and the dreamy, wistful "Hadron Collider." The album is full of perfectly-polished indie pop gems, but look beneath their glistening surface and you'll discover a super intelligent, deeply emotional work of art.
