Discovery – Orange Shirt

MP3: Discovery – “Orange Shirt” from LP, out July 7 on XL.

Chipper, synth pop from Rostam Batmanglij of Vampire Weekend and Wes Miles of Ra Ra Riot. According to the publicist, the project is “an attempt to realize Wes’s concept of a band where everyone plays synthesizers, and of Rostam’s concept for an album where handclaps keep the backbeat instead of snare drums. It’s an embrace and also a commentary on the pop music of the past decade, of booming 808 bass and jittery sixteenth note high-hats.”

Discovery: iTunes, Amazon, Insound, wiki, MySpace.
