Blood Orange
Cupid Deluxe

New Release Links

“Cupid Deluxe, his latest Blood Orange offering, is a personal statement of an artist finally finding his sound. More cohesive than 2011’s artful but unfinished Coastal Grooves, the album carries memorable, melancholy songs detailing life New York City. Though he played every instrument, recorded, and produced the tracks himself, Cupid Deluxe feels especially collaborative due to its multitude of guest spots and cameos. Lead single “Chamakay” features Chairlift’s Caroline Polachek, whose airy, meditative vocals carry the stunningly smooth, island-tinged track. David Longstreth of Dirty Projectors guests on another inspired take, his voice sounding incredibly soulful next to Hynes’ Prince-like croon.” – Josh Terry (COS.net)
“Daughtry takes some cool chances on his fourth album, “Baptized” (RCA). The first single, “Waiting for Superman,” which teams Chris Daughtry with the great Sam Hollander and Martin Johnson from Boys Like Girls, is a sleek change of pace, rolling together bits of The Fray and Bon Jovi into the patented Daughtry sound. On “Long Live Rock & Roll,” he cleverly reminisces about Billy Joel and grunge in a country-style rave-up.” – Glenn Gamboa (newsday.com)
