Good party records are hard to come by these days. Sure, Ke$ha and Wiz Khalifa may get some people dancing, but why should every party have the same soundtrack? Luckily, Philadelphia’s alternative hip hop band, Chiddy Bang, can bring something fresh to even the stalest of parties on their new album entitled Breakfast.
The album begins with an amped up intro, which fades into a high-energy song called, “Breakfast”- a great start to any party. This energy continues into “Handclaps & Guitars”, a catchy track that is easy to dance to (and rightfully delivers said clapping.)
But don’t fear if your friends aren’t freaks on the dance floor! Chiddy Bang has included several songs for a more contained atmosphere, in case your party needs a break. “Mind Your Manners”, “Ray Charles”, and “Does She Love Me?” are just a few of your mellow options.
While this well-balanced “breakfast” is great for the party scene, I wouldn’t recommend it to those of you looking for something deep and thought provoking. But with summer gatherings just around the corner, perhaps this record will find its way to your speakers.
