Lightspeed Champion
Life Is Sweet! Nice to Meet You
(Domino)
Releasing: 1 February [U.K.] 16 February [U.S.]


“Marlene”, the first single from the sophomore Lightspeed Champion (of Test Icicles fame) album has a pretty snazzy trailer. They way things are going, I wouldn’t be surprised if everything started getting trailers. Vaccinations. Traffic violations. Filibusters. It’s a slippery slope. Nigh frictionless, dare I say.
