Theophilus London - Lovers Holiday EP

I've just realized that my last posts have all been Britney-related (don't blame me though, the album is THAT good). Anyways, here is one that is not: a 5-song EP from a guy that turns hip-hop on its head and blends it with some eighties futuristic R&B and some more eighties indie pop. Add to the mix the sparkling synths, bouncing bass lines and infectious choruses, and you have the aural equivalent of a cute smile in your face. Like someone said, it's as if Prince and Kid Cudi had a baby, and that baby grew up listening to a lot of Morrissey. And that's your lesson in the art of procreation for today, kids. (8/10)
