Featured Chromeo stories

Some list-nerd stuff, before we begin. A$AP Rocky’s Karl Lagerfeld’s The Warriors video for “Multiply” dropped at midnight last night, which means it technically came out this morning. Since this list covers Friday to the following Thursday, that means it wasn’t eligible. It would’ve probably made the list, too. Maybe next week, Rocky! Thom Yorke’… More »

Guy Fieri has had his share of bad press. He’s been accused by a former producer of, well, not being such a great guy. Pete Wells, restaurant critic for the New York Times asked, after dining at his Times Square restaurant, “When you cruise around the country for your show Diners, Drive-Ins And Dives rasping… More »

It’s not a proper music video, so it’s not on this list, but Yours Truly’s series of videos from the Young Turks new years festival in Tulum, Mexico is the greatest marriage of music and moving images that I’ve seen this week. These clips — Caroline Polachek singing opera while standing knee-deep in a crystalline… More »

DJ Cassidy – “Future Is Mine” (Feat. Chromeo)

On his new single “Future Is Mine,” DJ Cassidy has assembled a team who knows a whole lot about putting together effervescent early-’80s pop-funk. Chromeo, the track’s featured stars, probably do better work reviving this style than anyone else. And the track also has contributions from Patrice Rushen, the singer of the 1982 nugget “Forget… More »

Watch Ezra Koenig Join Chromeo At Governors Ball

During Chromeo’s set at Governors Ball yesterday, Dave 1 announced “There’s this guitar riff I like to play sometimes, it’s like…” and played the unmistakable opening of Vampire Weekend’s “Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa.” After Dave played the riff once more, Ezra Koenig walked onto the stage, jokingly teasing, “Dave, I showed you the riff, man.

Watch Chromeo Get Professional Help On Vanessa Bayer’s Sound Advice

In recent weeks, SNL star Vanessa Bayer has used her terrible-PR-flak video series Sound Advice to do funny bits with people like “Weird Al” Yankovic and Sleater-Kinney. But her new video with Chromeo might be the best of the series. Chromeo offer Bayer so much to work with. In the video, she gets to try… More »

Watch Jonah Hill Cover Drake, Scarlett Johansson Cover New Order, Stephen Malkmus Cover The Black Crowes, Jarvis Cocker Cover Celine Dion For Vice’s 20th Birthday In Brooklyn

There was a not-entirely-common sight down around the Brooklyn Navy Yard last night. Dozens of cabs lined the street, because depending on where you’re coming from the Navy Yard can kind of be a pain to get to, and also because NYC’s been doing this thing where it’s decided to just rain constantly in December,… More »

Vice is throwing an invite-only party tomorrow night in Brooklyn to celebrate their 20th anniversary, and Yeah Yeah Yeahs guitarist Nick Zinner — who will be part of the house band along with Andrew Wyatt, Pauli PSM, and Jack Lawrence — posted the lineup for the event on his Twitter account tonight.

Chromeo Were A Jeopardy! Answer But Nobody Knew Who They Were

Jeopardy! has accrued a plentiful history of pop music trivia in recent years, and last night it happened again. As CoS points out, when defending champion Bill Albertini selected “Pop ‘C’ulture” for $1600 — the category being pop cultural touchstones with ‘C’ names — a portrait of Dave 1 and P-Thugg popped up with the… More »

Chromeo – “Old 45’s” Video (Feat. HAIM)

In the seriously awesome video for White Women jam “Old 45’s,” Chromeo flirt with a sexy brunette and kick it with HAIM at an old-fashioned dive bar before Jon Heder shows up — apparently in character as an aged Napoleon Dynamite — to start a bar fight. It’s just as much fun as you’d think,… More »

Made In America Philadelphia In Words & Photos

Made In America has always struck me as an odd festival. In these still early years for the event, it’s a somewhat small entity. Two days as opposed to others’ four or five, or others’ double weekends; four stages in somewhat close quarters on a shut-down Benjamin Franklin Parkway; a lineup of a size where,… More »

Watch The Lollapalooza 2014 Webcast Here

Lollapalooza is starting right now in Chicago, and Red Bull TV has done us all a solid by livestreaming as many of the performances as possible. Among the acts you’ll get to see live via three channels are OutKast, Arctic Monkeys, Lorde, Spoon, Chance The Rapper, Jenny Lewis, and Skrillex. Given that it is notMore »

Arthur Baker – “No Price” (Feat. Chromeo & Al-P)

Arthur Baker produced “Planet Rock” by Afrika Bambaataa, which by itself is enough to give him a rock-solid legacy, but the man continued throughout the ’80s remixing and producing. Today he’s released “No Price,” a lost song originally titled “No Price For Our Love” that he began work on 35 years ago and only recently… More »

Iggy Azalea & Charli XCX, Little Dragon, Childish Gambino, Chromeo Star In Milk Music Ad

Milk Music isn’t just a DIY punk band from Olympia; it’s also the name Samsung has given to its entry into the streaming-services wars. And in a new commerical, the Samsung people have rounded up a fairly impressive slate of artists, organizing them together in service of the idea that, if you play these people’… More »

Chromeo – “Frequent Flyer” Video

Earlier this month we got word that Chromeo had invested in the apparently fake Mallard Air. This was obviously some kind of publicity stunt, and all signs pointed to Funny Or Die’s involvement; it turned out to be a promotion for the group’s new Frequent Flyer tour. Now Chromeo and Funny Or Die have collaborated… More »

Chromeo Pretend To Invest In Budget Airline

Chromeo announced through multiple press releases today that both members, Dave 1 and P-Thugg, are now major equity holders in a new boutique airline called Mallard Air. Dave 1: “When Mallard approached us about share acquisition, we thought it was a joke. But when we got to know the people behind the airline, a creative… More »

Chuck Inglish – “Legs” (Feat. Chromeo) Video

The Cool Kids rapper/producer Chuck Inglish released his solo debut Convertibles earlier this year, and on “Legs,” the album’s first single, he collaborated with Chromeo. “Legs” is less a Chuck Inglish song with a Chromeo chorus than a Chromeo song with Inglish rapping on it. And in the song’s new video, from director Andreis Costa,… More »

Watch Chromeo Bring “Jealous” To Letterman

Chromeo’s White Women is now out and yesterday the Canadian synth-pop duo hit The Late Show in advance of two shows at NYC’s Terminal 5. Dave 1 and P-Thugg did their spring jam “Jealous (I Ain’t With It)” with a female choir and a fog machine, and it looked and sounded like this:… More »

Stream Chromeo White Women

The pop duo Chromeo has a sense of play in what they do that is hard not to smile at. Just look at their new album White Women, which was announced through a Craigslist missed connection ad. The singles that followed reinforced their personality in collaborations with Ezra Koenig and Toro Y Moi. Now you… More »
