On the first listen of Hot Chip's debut album, a few tracks definitelystand out from the rest and you can be sure that some of thesesuper-catchy tunes will be released as follow-ups to the 'Down withPrince' EP. Other tunes are definite 'growers', getting better with everylisten - with some fun, memorable melodies this is an album you can listento on repeat and not get bored with.
In a recent write-up, NME dubbedHot Chip's sound 'slapcore' - a pretty meaningless description! It ismore a fusion of light electro/soul with modern/urban beats, resulting ina warm and uplifting harmonious balance of old and new musical stlyes.
Intricate yet subtly varied rythms and an array of novel sounds keepmany of Hot Chip's songs bubbling happily along, making this album apleasure to listen to every time.
Recommended to buy!
