Devonté Hynes and Phiip Glass Compare Notes

Although I've seen Dev Hynes aka Blood Orange perform live twice and ranked his 2016 album Freetown Sound my favorite album of the year, watching this interview made me realize I've never actually heard him speak. And his darling English accent is reason number one that I love this interview. Number two is the coming together of artists from two different stratospheres of music (R&B and classical minimalism), number three is their discussion of how artists find and use their voices during troubling times, and number four, of course, is hearing Philip Glass call the versions of our Founding Fathers in Hamilton, "hipsters".
