Artist: Chromeo Track: "I Can't Tell You Why" Album: DJ Kicks Listen

Chromeo's influences are strange: Hall & Oates, Pablo Cruise, Flight of the Conchords, Jodeci. How these bedfellows coexist (and, apparently, get freaky) is beyond me, but I'm glad they do. DJ Kicks, out Sept.29, promises good things from the throwback duo. (It looks like they've got another project called Night by Night coming soon, too.)
