Did you know that Rostam Batmanglij (from Vampire Weekend) and Wes Miles (from Ra Ra Riot) have a band together? Or electronic musical project, or something. They’re called Discovery, and it’s funny that The Fader mentions The-Dream in their post about Discovery’s first single, because this song sounds to me like they’ve been listening to a lot of The-Dream and filtering it through an indie-rock lens to create a super concentrated ray of pop sunshine. Or something. Either way, this has got to be the most exciting sound I’ve heard in a while, and you can see just how much new music I’ve been wading through this week.
It seems like only yesterday that Vampire Weekend breathed new life into a slowly stagnating indie pop scene, and already Rostam is leading the way to the next level.
Oh, and obligatory LOL at Rostam’s last name being Batman(glij). Sorry.
