Album To Check Out: Chromeo – White Women

chromeoIt’s been a while since we heard from electro-funk band Chromeo. Ever since the successful release of their third record Business Casual, the New York-based duo of Dave 1 and P-Thugg have been laying low, only occasionally sprinkling in appearances and the occasional remix. That’s all set to change though as Chromeo is readying their newest record White Women. And it looks like the party times are here again.

Based on the cover of White Women, you know that once again, Chromeo are bringing back the fun and the funk. And more than ever, White Women is an album that is filled with hits ready-made for dancing. With the assist of friends such as Solange, Ezra Koenig of Vampire Weekend, Toro Y Moi, and LCD Soundsystem‘s Pat Mahoney, the songs from White Women have a shiny studio-ready polish to them. Each feels like a single that can stand on its own and each incorporates that Chromeo formula of goofy jam-worthiness.

Chromeo are coming to St Louis. They will be playing at The Pageant on 5/7 (tickets here)

Watch the video for the (one-of-many) single Jealous (I Ain’t With It) embedded below.

Chromeo – White Women comes out 5/12 via Big Beat (order here)
