Rhye are Canadian singer-songwriter Michael Milosh and Danish producer-songwriter Robin Hannibal – but you'd be forgiven for thinking their debut was the new Sade LP. Milosh's androgynous voice bears a startling resemblance to that of the lite-soul queen, and he uses it deliciously, unspooling sultry whispers and coos over chill soul-jazz and r&b grooves draped in strings, harps, flutes and flugelhorns. The result is like a drag show on the S.S. Yacht Rock, but an exceptionally refined one. See "Last Dance," where Milosh's elongated "oooooo"s billow like a disco-fever dream of "More, More, More," the 1977 hit by late porn star Andrea True. It's fluffer funk of the first order.

    Talking Heads | 1985

    A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
