Chromeo Reveal "White Women" Release Date, via Craigslist Missed Connection (Larry David Funk)




"I asked your boss for your number. I never wondered which way it would go. You woke me up from my slumber. Now let me break your work flow. It's not a lot, but all I wanna do is skip town on a weekend with you. There's still so much to discover There's still a lot we don't know," read a recent suspiciously rhythmic-sounding Craigslist missed connections posting. It's actually a thinly veiled album release announcement for Chromeo's new album, "White Women (title) 05-12-14 (date) - m4w," which also includes the Retro-80's album artwork. The FADER dually notes that the address listed with the posting, 701 1st Ave. N, was actually the location of First Avenue, Prince's favourite hometown Minneapolis venue, where Purple Rain's concert sequences were filmed. White Women, a self-described Larry David Funk album, is rumored to house a few choice cuts assisted by frequent collaborator Solange, Toro Y Moi, Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig, former LCD Soundsystem drummer Pat Mahoney, Oliver, and Biggie-sampled singer Tawatha Agee (Mtume). While Dave 1 & P-Thugg additionally managed to appear on a recent Chuck Inglish track, "Legs," from his upcoming album, Convertibles. "It's ambiguous - ethnic guys [they're Jewish-Moroccan and Lebanese] making a tribute to black music with an album called White Women. We felt it was a challenge to this super conservative climate we're feeling in America these days," Dave 1 lamented to Rolling Stone this past October. "We just wanted debates like this to be engaged. It's interesting that the music we make can branch out into these conversations," he continued.
