Chiddy Bang first came to our attention with their mash up of MGMT’s awesome song ‘Kids’ named ‘Opposite of Adults’ - what they seemed to think was an original title… The track was different, but totally weak and poor in comparison to the original. And sadly their preliminary album follows suit. Filled with lifeless, obvious party tracks, there is no substance or stand out track. Even production from Pharell Williams can not save them. The idea that this is a placeholder until the full LP ‘The Swelly Life’ is released in 2011 does not bode well for what we can expect. Let’s hope by that time the additional songs will be considerably better.
