Death of Autotune?

Not according to the debut LP from Discovery, the dynamic collaboration between Vampire Weekend's Rostam Batmanglij and Ra Ra Riot's Wes Miles. The debut release from this collaboration is appropriately entitled LP, and is packed full of synth and reverb and yes, the Jay-Z detested autotune. All in all however, I have found Discovery to be quite enjoyable and certainly worth the listen. This is not your standard synth fronted indie rock band, but seems to mesh a little bit more of the current hip-hop sound behind their soaring vocals. There is a fantastic remix of Jackson 5's "I Want You Back" on there that I think everyone should listen too. The album is available for stream here, and you can hear their song "Osaka Loop Line" in the playlist.
