Just Listen: Wildlife

Chromeo fans, eat your heart out. Brooklyn-based Wildlife are a fun electronic group that are perfect for your 2009 summer, however little left there may be of it. Per the press release:

"Composed of Gabriel Cohen-DeVries, Tomek Gross, & Andrew Doga, Wildlife have crafted a solid set of songs with their debut project. The group takes electronica on with a singular perspective as they blend live instrumentation, sly humor, and killer craftsmanship."

What I love about Wildlife is that while their sound is very clean, they've also tinged their lyrics with a bit of a wink. Their influences aren't solely electronic, either; there's clearly bits of hip-hop at work here, and their music is all the better for it. To put it frankly, these are smart musicians.

Their International Girl EP is due later this summer, so keep an eye out for it. In the meantime, here's the killer title track.
