DOWN TO “BUSINESS CASUAL”
A New York Times’ article titled “Cold Fusion” in 2005 was slugged with the teaser: “The next big thing in American music is 45 miles north of the border.” The writer, of course, was talking about Montreal’s then-up-and-coming, now-chart-topping music scene. That was also around the time that electro-funk duo Chromeo had just released their debut album “She’s in Control” a year earlier. Composed of P-Thugg (ne Patrick Gemayel) on keyboards, synthesizers, and talk box, and Dave 1 (passport name David Macklovitch) on guitar and lead vocals, the band’s name suggests a gleaming sort of polish, a finesse which still comes through some seven years later in club-ready pop tracks, like “Needy Girl.” Now on their third studio album, “Business Casual,” released late last year, Chromeo is set to kick off your weekend with some “Fancy Footwork” at Terminal 5. Ditch the suit jacket and check them out tonight and Saturday. TGIF.
