Download of the Day: Chromeo!!!!1!11!!one!!

24 01 2008

It’s been a looooong while since I made a music recommendation (circa March 2006) on the old blog. That’s not to say that I haven’t been encountering some great stuff—my iTunes recently eclipsed the 6,000 mark—because I have. I’ve just been incredibly lazy, but HOLY FUCKING SHITBALLS, this album Fancy Footwork by Chromeo is 110% worthy of a shout-out and the whateveritssummer stamp of approval.

Every song is great—far and away some of the best dance/party/rock out in your car/purely enjoyable music I’ve heard in a long time. These guys have distilled everything that is great about 80’s dance pop and have filtered out all the sugary aftertaste. This album is forty balls-out minutes of slap bracelets, Day-glo high-tops, big Whitney Houston hair, Cosby sweaters, keyboard ties, and 227 reruns. If Miami Vice were still on today, this is what Crockett and Tubbs would be blasting from their speedboat on their way to Hall and Oates’ sexy coke party at the Shore Club.

Bonus points for the sick album cover and for the nod to Rockwell on ‘Waiting 4 U.’ Get this album now.
