Canadian duo Chromeo delivers an immaculate recreation of 1980s electro-funk on White Women, closer to homage than parody.

The attention to detail – all thumb-slap bass, brash synths, tippy-tappy drum machines and smoothly peppy vocals – borders on the sterile, but it has an authentically slick charm too, reinforced by cameos from Solange Knowles and Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig.
