Episode Summary

EDIT
Lightspeed Champion - "Marleen"
AIRED:
Life is Sweet! Nice to Meet You, the sophomore album from British songwriter Lightspeed Champion (Dev Hynes) is allegedly "an unassumingly epic collection of twelve pop songs, two instrumental intermissions, and one piano etude, bound together by a sense of longing so piquant that the listener, after listening, can't easily stifle the sense that he himself is on the verge of some major transition, for better or worse." If all that sounds like too much to handle at the moment, we suggest starting slow with this Western tinged video for the album's first single, "Marleen". It's a nifty number, slice and diced with a flurry of pocket strings, a funky drum beat, and some awfully crunchy guitar work. As for the video, it seems to mix grainy spaghetti western imagery with a surreal pastiche of modern life and psychedelic freak outs. All of which leads us to the pleasant conclusion that this Marlene character must have really done a number on our man Dev.moreless
