Tiny Mix Tapes

Technicolor Rainbow Supernova: they have held microphones towards it. Rostam Batmanglij of Vampire Weekend and Wes Miles of Ra Ra Riot took a summer sabbatical in the cosmos and have returned with the synth and stardust-sprinkled LP, under the handle Discovery. Tales of pleading love and the trains departing Neo Tokyo are cast in a mesh of Nintendo bleeps and Auto-Tune that remains remarkably warm and emotional. The first three songs of LP — giddy, swirling tufts of digital cotton candy — foreshadow a more immediate, palatable wave of independent music on the horizon. And while the happiness they’ve synthesized isn’t entirely sustainable, any lack of depth is made up for in cheerful buoyancy.
