LP by Discovery
Released: Jul 2009
Label: Xl
The duo of Vampire Weekend's Rostam Batmanglij and Ra Ra Riot's Wes Miles, Discovery consummate indie rock's love affair with glittery French house and synth-heavy R&B on their debut album, LP. Like a cross between R. Kelly, Daft Punk and the Postal Service, Discovery specialize in swaggering crunk-lite beats, cheesecake keyboard layers and unabashedly saccharine vocals, complete with Auto-Tune. They're at their best on "So Insane," whose huffing organs, thick vocal harmonies and wanton tempo changes sound less studied and more willfully perverse.
