I wouldn't put much thought into this person's article. She's not someone who seems very important, anyway, to be dissing your music. Personally, I enjoy all of your work and I implore you to continue (especially as Lightspeed Champion) making music.

The things you're into are totally cool and unique. You're such an amazing person! Don't let anything put you down!

She didn't even cotton on that it's a song about sex workers, so she clearly can't be that smart

Tiffany Daniels, the 22 year old "music journalist" if you will, is quite frankly talking out of her rear.

Please don't bring Lightspeed to an end. You're a musical genius and this might sound like a little bit of a cliche, but your music keeps me sane, somehow.

Dev man, reviews are merely other people's opinions. Im sure if i went out into the street, i'd meet tons of people who hated my favourite bands, or my clothes or even my hair. You've done lightspeed based purely on the music and lyrical style you like and which you desire to write.

You shouldnt let other people's opinions form or validate your own feelings on the music you've made, because then, you're formulating judgements based on other people's feelings and not your own, and that so wrong from such a talented and obviously popular artist.

If lightspeed is so awful, why do you have so many fans? why are you signed to a major recording label and why have you done so many sucssesful tours and had the oppertunity to work with so many cool musicians and even Beyonce's bloody sister!

Seriously man, its natural to want to delve into other genres, blood orange etc, but your lightspeed guise has produced two brilliant albums, countless EPs and its brilliance certainly isnt lessened by some bitch on fucking pitchfork. Dont let the man get you down, or as Judy Garland said:

"Be a first rate version of yourself, not a second-rate version of somebody else."

And trust me, alot of people love Dev and Lightspeed Champion.

"Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are." -John Wooden

Dev's Movie Blog

One night, my room mate mentioned how it'd be pretty funny for someone to watch all the movies listed at the bottom of IMDB. I've started to, and it's not funny.
