After sharing a festival stage with plastic-soul godhead Daryl Hall, what's a pair of funked-up '80s electro-pop replicants to do? If your answer involves more talk box, synth, sax, "Eye of the Tiger" guitar soloing, and feathery lover-boy vocal tics, well, Québécois crate-diggers Dave 1 and P-Thugg can go for that. But Chromeo's third album also expands, no less credibly, into rippling Balearica and Air-y electro-lounge. Business Casual's libidinous wit can't quite match 2007's Fancy Footwork, but this day at the office still features booty calls, romantic squabbles, and digitally syrupy declarations of devotion.
