Breakfast

This pop-rap pair's debut LP opens with sounds of children playing, and infantile vocal snippets tie it together: twee, high-pitched, pre-verbal. The Philadelphia duo sampled MGMT's "Kids" on 2010's global hit "Opposite of Adults"; Breakfast proves that not growing up is their obsession. Indie electro-dribble runs thick as Nigerian-American rapper Chiddy Anamege makes room for guests like Ellie Goulding and Icona Pop, gets emo about girlfriend woes (most notably on the contraception PSA "Baby Roulette"), feigns blindness over rolling pianos in "Ray Charles" and references Philly's own Fresh Prince twice. But ultimately, your Chiddy Bang tolerance rests on your ability to endure the self-consciously cute.
