    Dev Hynes has the party kid blues. The goofy getuped, one time guitar noodler for famously named British outfit Test Icicles, Hynes’s latest persona as Lightspeed Champion favors sensitive, country kissed acoustics over the outrageous, dance driven dramatics of his last band. Apparently though, everyone knows SXSW hates people with acoustic guitars (his words). So for this performance from the Domino Records Showcase, Lightspeed packs both an axe and his Star Wars blazoned acoustic. The result, though, is still the same deliciously, hooky, Middle American folk we’ve come to expect from Lightspeed. – David Pitz
