if there is one thing i love its musicians that bring the FUNK. for whatever reason this hasn't been a big concern in music outside of HIP HOP and DANCE music for a long time. i don't get it. maybe artists think that somehow making your rhythms sonically adventurous and unpredictable and, you know, fun to listen to makes them less serious? again i don't get it.
but thank god there is CHROMEO, a CANANDIAN duo who are not afraid to bring the FUNK in all its variations during its 70s and 80s heyday. not that they are retro or looking back to recapture a moment. to my ears they sound like right now, or at least a sound that should be mimicked moving forward.
great hooks, great songs, great production. cannot push this band any harder. definitely check them out.
