Discovery (Side Project Of Vampire Weekend & Ra Ra Riot)

By Will Oliver, April 24th 2009 — with 2 comments MP3 News

It is time to discover Discovery. Ok that was a bit cheesy. Back to being a serious blogger….Many people say that Vampire Weekend and Ra Ra Riot both have similar sounds. While I don’t really say that, both bands had a great 2008 and seem to be great mainstays for the new decade. Well now members of both bands have teamed up together for an R&B/Electronic based project. Get to know the side project of Rostam Batmanglij (Vampire Weekend) and Wes Miles (Ra Ra Riot). Their band Discovery has been for a year or so, but they apparently are getting the project started again. Here are two tracks from the band that I know of so far. If I find any more I will keep you updated. They are pretty cool. Osaka Loop Line is the standout out of the two, the vocals and snyths combine for pop excellence. This is a side project that we can expect great things from. Two of the coolest bands to come out of ’08 making good music = a happy will

Great call Will – found this on the Neon Gold blog and it’s absolutely fantastic. Sort of makes you wish Vampire Weekend would just split up… 😉 (maybe not quite!)
