Chromeo - "Over Your Shoulder"

At last, the new Chromeo single is here, and it's everything I dreamed it would be.  "Over the Shoulder" is a fantastic track to lead off White Women with, and while it's certainly not as synth heavy as some of the duo's previous tracks, it's every bit classic Chromeo otherwise, with humor and classic hooks.  You can bet the rest of the record will have plenty of synth though-- the Vine and Instagram previews have certainly indicated so.  Can't wait to hear the full record.

Anoraak - "Morning Light"

Mark Anoraak's next record as one of my most anticipated of the year.  I'm a super-fan of the work of the synth wizard.  "Morning Light" is the first single off the new record, which features the tightest production we've heard to date from the French rocker.  I have a hard time defining the Anoraak genre-- super modern but with pop and rock roots-- but he's a force unto himself.  Watch out for the full Anoraak record dropping soon-- it looks to be a fantastic follow up to Wherever the Sun Sets.

Chromeo's "White Women" Trailer might be the best thing I've seen and heard all year

Wow.  The Vine and Instagram teasers Chromeo has slowly trickled out couldn't prepare me for this awesome taste of their new record, White Women.  The song, most importantly, sounds like a track out of an old funk collection, complete with imbedded humor (yeah, you heard a comment about small breasts in there).  The video itself has an stylish flair and classy quality to it as well.  Chromeo's been refining their sound, and White Women promises to be their opus.  When can I hear more?
