“It’s like being a drag queen on Halloween or having a seizure at a rave or being an asshole in Philadelphia.”—Jon Stewart on North Korea threatening to launch missiles at Hawaii on the Fourth of July (via bthny)(via waitrighthere)
Discovery is the unlikely side project built from members of two bands I wouldn’t necessarily have put together: Rostam Batmanglij of Vampire Weekend and Wes Miles of Ra Ra Riot. This odd couple doesn’t just work, it kills. Their debut album, the coyly titled LP, is a blast from start to finish. Drenched in synthesizers and handclaps (with no shortage of Auto-Tune), the music doesn’t sound like Vampire Weekend or Ra Ra Riot, but rather has a more trippy, R&B-cum-indie vibe that’s near impossible to get out of my head. LP should prove to be one of the summer’s most fun albums, so track down a copy when it’s released on July 7th.
yup, kinda annoying and it’s stuck in my head already.
