Discovery, 'LP' (XL)

LP
Critical Mass

To call this synth-slathered electro-R&B side project from Ra Ra Riot's Wes Miles and Vampire Weekend's Rostam Batmanglij a genre experiment implies it's a failure. It's not. Hearing Miles croon, "I promise to leave before your mother wakes up in the morning" over a warm bed of fuzzy synths and tinny 808s on "Orange Shirt" falls just on the right side of ridiculous; the multitempo electro-pop jam "So Insane" is oddly affecting, as is the spare, reggae-tinged"Slang Tang." Goofy lyrics and too-frequent Auto-Tuning pushes this close to winking douchebaggery, but not too close.
