Here’s a fresh track from Blood Orange, the most recent moniker of british composer/songwriter/producer Devonté “Dev” Hynes.  Previous aliases include Test Icicles (personal fave) and most notably, Lightspeed Champion.  “Sutphin Boulevard” is the second song we’ve heard from the Blood Orange project but the first single off its forthcoming studio album, Coastal Grooves.

You’re going to get a Theophilus London feel from this one and that’s likely because these two collaborated recently on London’s “Flying Overseas”, which featured Solange Knowles and was officially released on the Lovers Holiday EP.

Coastal Grooves is slated for distribution via Domino Records on August 8th in the UK, and a few weeks later on August 30th in the States.

I’m feeling pretty good about this one, it’s a total warm weather cruiser.  What do you guys think?
