Autumn Mix #10: You're Not Good Enough

Dev Hynes - aka Blood Orange, etc - has been nailing it for the past year. He co-wrote/wrote and produced Solange's True EP, Sky Ferreira's Everything Is Embarrassing and MKS's recent single Flatline. His own new album, Cupid Deluxe, is just out and this track is a major highlight.

You're Not Good Enough has a serious Prince vibe and a cutting lyric, which fits with Dev's (inadvertent?) anti-hero status. Drama swirls around him, as evidenced in this new Fader piece. I also like his distinctive style of dance, which is on better display in the clip for another new LP track, Time Will Tell. Here you just see his feet!

This LP is so much more developed than the first Blood Orange record and I am loving it! Still, I miss Dev's Lightspeed Champion moniker a little--the last album was really good at being Morrissey-esque...

This tastiness sounds like some outtake from some never heard of Andre Cymone and Dez Dickerson project preceding Prince's Dirty Mind
