Lightspeed Champion – “Heavy Purple”

This isn’t a new song.  I’ve had it on my hard drive for a long time now.  And I don’t know why I’ve never posted it.  Because it rocks.  Meet Devonté Hynes aka Lightspeed Champion.  It’s really hard to pinpoint the vibe of this joint.  It has sort of a complex simplicity to it.  Very sparse (pretty strings) but lush (heavy bass) at the same time.

You can close your eyes and almost pretend that Lenny Kravitz is taking a stab at trippy trance rock.  I’m not even going to attempt to decipher the meaning of the lyrics.  But however you want to classify it in your mind, put the volume up a little and watch the notes slide down the walls.
