“When The Night Falls” f. Solange Knowles (Live On Fallon) (Video)

    The original version of “When the Night Falls” from Chromeo’s Business Casual featured a guest vocal turn from Solange Knowles, who repeated the trick for the band’s appearance on Jimmy Fallon’s show last night. There are also some Robert Palmer-esque backing singers along for the ride, and of course Chromeo’s superbly kitschy keyboards-on-legs, which help make this a playful hark back to the superficial pop sounds of the ‘80s. This is the kind of territory that this band works so well in, with “When the Night Falls” falling close to pastiche on occasion, but their obvious affection for the source material shining through. There are even some Zapp-style vocodered backing vocals to complete the package. [via The Audio Perv]
