Ra Ra Riot is one of my FAVOURITE bands right now, and I just found out that front man Wes Miles has a side project with Rostam Batmanglij, the keyboardist from Vampire Weekend. They've been jamming since 2007, and expect to release their EP this summer. Check out their myspace for the two tracks they've got released so far.
These songs sound more like Vampire Weekend than Ra Ra Riot. Super cute lyrics, mixed with electro-dancey beats. I'll let this colab perculate, and report back in a bit, once they've grown on me a bit.
