Lightspeed Champion is helmed by Devonte Hynes, a singer who came up with the hyped and quick-to-implode British dance-punk band Test Icicles. Whereas that group careened out of control, however, Lightspeed Champion shows signs of sticking around. The band’s debut album, 2008’sFalling Off The Lavender Bridge, assumes a punk-folk sensibility akin to Mekons, and features songs like “All To Shit” and “Let The Bitches Die." A new album, Life Is Sweet! Nice To Meet You, follows along those lines, with an even more expansive sound wedded to Hynes’ nervous, sharp-edged compositions.
