Everyone loves a good side project band, and Discovery is no exception. Discovery is the brainchild of Vampire Weekend’s keyboardist Rostam Batmanglij and Ra Ra Riot’s lead singer Wes Miles. Their debut album “LP” will be released on 6th July, but already some tracks are floating around the blogosphere.

Included below for your consideration is “Carby” featuring another Vampire Weekend member, lead singer Ezra Koenig. Also BELOW below is Discovery’s apt electro autotune-HEAVY cover of The Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back”. It’s a world away from Vampire Weekend’s signature folky indie blend, but it’s almost as good. I look forward to hearing more.
