My missus was just saying this the other day

I love his late 70s early 80s stuff so he's a-ok with me

I've tried several albums by him over the years and his stuff always seems really self consciously written to me.

At its very best its amazing but with that in mind he's basically just like a scruffier ABBA to me, I don't think I ever need more than a best of....

Anyway, yer man Dev Hynes/Lightspeed Champion/Blood Orange

I've heard an unholy amount of music by him, and even saw him live a few times... never liked a single thing by him. Just don't get it at all at all.

Really liked their last album but after seeing them live I went off them and haven't listened since.
I think I'm still struggling with all the hipsters listening to and being influenced by black metal. In my head it's like some band from Brooklyn suddenly getting mad into Richie Kavanagh.

I quite like that sludgey black stuff in a I'll hear it and enjoy but not buy a record sort of way, but it probably occupies a space in my head that also likes Fuck Buttons. There's a Mount Eerie record that went all Black Metal that I quite liked though.

I really liked, and still like, that first lightspeed champion album. Haven't listened to anything else by him

But all joking aside I actually don't mind Deafheaven. Your man's voice is kind of annoying but the music's pretty decent.

Some of my friends adore him..I've listened to him and some of his earlier band's stuff but I just don't get it at all. Good singer, unique talent etc etc but not for me
