Their track “Chrome’s On It” has appeared on numerous blogs recently (and gotten the remix treatment from Mad Decent, The Mae Shi, and Frankmusik with the Chrome’s On It EP), giving us an idea of what we can expect on February 17, when Melissa Livaudais and Busy Gangnes drop their debut album under their Telepathe guise.

Vital stats on the new album, titled Dance Mother, are as follows: it was recorded with TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek, who, armed with his collection of vintage synths, turned the minimal song structures into epically layered tracks of offbeat hip-hop and future-pop. TVOTR’s Kip Malone showed up for guest vocals, as did !!!’s Shannon Funchess. Finally, the album will drop via IAMSOUND early next year.

Livaudais and Gangnes are currently on tour in the U.S. and will wrap up the year with a few shows in Europe as well.
