Review: Chromeo Channels Hall & Oates on ‘Business Casual,’ Matures Sorta

Chromeo aim for "maximum dancefloor penetration" on Business Casual.

I like the word “wistful” right now. I’ve used it too much. It’s now made the moratorium list. Yes, “wistful” is on hiatus. It apologizes to its fans. Here’s where it all started, in a review for The AV. Club of Chromeo’s third (!) album, Business Casual. Choice quote:

“Like Hot Chip before them, Montreal’s Dave 1 and P-Thugg have set out to prove that they’re better musicians than they are ironic, party hat-wearing hipsters.”

Mysterious, right? Read the harrowing conclusion over here.

Does this count as blackface?
