CD Review: Chromeo Is All "Business"

Chromeo's third album "Business Casual" finds the funk brothers, Dave 1 and P-Thugg bringing back the 1980's pop heyday with synthesizers and voice changers. The album was released back in September and the song "Don't Turn The Lights On" is featured in the FIFA 2011 video game.

The 80's coming roaring back on the album's opener "Hot Mess" and just continues throughout the album. Drum machines, synthesizers, dance beats and voice changers are what drive the songs "Night by Night" and "The Right Type." The addition of Solange Knowles' vocals on "When The Night Falls" gives the song a more balanced sound to Dave 1's singing. The album closes with the up-tempo "Grow Up", which has Chromeo throwing everything into their music.

Chromeo will finish the month with a show in Chicago before heading overseas for the rest of the year. "Business Casual" was released through Atlantic Records and a deluxe edition of the album is available through iTunes. For more information on Chromeo's tour and new album, visit chromeo.net.
