Discovery - LP

Here's another side-project that is totally worth it. Two indie kids (Vampire Weekend keyboardist Rostam Batmanglij and Ra Ra Riot singer Wes Miles), having the time of their lives pretending that they are an R&B version of Daft Punk. And when we have an amalgamation of old-school synths, hip-hop beats, vocoders and a literally out-of-this-world cover of The Jackson 5 ("I Want You Back") in 10 glistening moments of pure joy, it's impossible not to have the time of our lives as well, at least while the music lasts. (8,5/10)
