Life Is Sweet! Nice to Meet You, the second Lightspeed Champion long player (released 15th/16th February 2010 through Domino Records), is an unassumingly epic collection of 12 pop songs, two instrumental intermissions, and one piano étude. Lightspeed’s early leaning towards American country dressings is traded here for a palette that draws on classical music and even musical theatre. Producer and mixer Ben Allen (Animal Collective, Gnarls Barkley) assembles the eclectic grab-bag of influences: joltingly ‘70s guitar and synth sounds, classical piano and Greek choruses shouting reprisals.
All songs written and arranged by Devonté Hynes.
