Hot Mess - Chromeo

Legbamel Not-Pop

What do you get when you take two white boys from Montreal and root their musical life in Midnight Star and other great 80s electro? You get Chromeo, that's what. As Hot Mess amply demonstrates, those great vocorders and synths migrated north and have been put to good use.

For this Monday evening, let's have a great, retro Hot Mess of what the band terms "electrofunk". If you enjoy this one try My Girl Is Calling Me (A Liar) and Rage! for more back-to-the-80s, retro-electro goodness. Heck, they even have a song called Tenderoni. If that's not proof of reaching back a few decades for your inspiration--and your slang--I don't know what is.
