BLOODY GOOD SHOW
Blood Orange is Devonté Hynes, a singer, songwriter and producer who has helped shape the careers of sultry pop wanna-be’s like Sky Ferreira as well as more R&B-leaning artists like Solange Knowles. But when he’s on his own? Hynes gets in a groove and stays there, carving out a space for love and heartache to linger and murmur to one another. His latest album is 2013’s Cupid Deluxe, a critically acclaimed ’80s-inspired disco affair that explores the underbelly of America’s relationship to the LGBT community. He’s a deft performer with a lot of soul, who will assuredly woo Central Park tonight.
