4.0 out of 5 stars This time, they mean business, 1 Mar. 2006

This review is from: Over And Over (Original) (Audio CD)
Hot Chip have always appealed to me, simply because I loved the sight of a short, nerdy man in glasses singing a song called 'Down With Prince'. But their actual music did little to distinguish them from the other geeks seeking out The Artist's crown. But forget that, because 'Over And Over' is the sound of a band who've done their homework and returned with a classic comeback single. A love letter to repetitive beats that go "over and over, like a monkey with a miniature cymbal", it's an ultra-danceable, infectious tune, and the funkiest indie track since LCD Soundsystem started making waves. At the line "the joy of repetition really is in you", you'll want to compliment them back, as they've made full use of retro synths and repetitive basslines to propel the track. Thanks to MTV2 taking a liking to its cool, green-screen-aided video, this should become a well-deserved indie-dance hit. Cherish it because, at this rate, they'll soon change their name to an unpronounceable squiggle and become Jehovah's Witnesses.

Caught the wonderful video to this the other night and thought it was funny, but the song is even better. In fact it's the best single I've heard so far this year.
Funky, catchy, bizarre, superb. I really cannot say enough good things about this. BUY IT NOW!

5.0 out of 5 stars not alone again nor, 10 Mar. 2006
This review is from: Over And Over (Original) (Audio CD)
I have only bought two singles in my lifetime: the second is hot chip's over and over, the first, the upsetters 'return of django'. while the latter is now surely up there with the all-time great tunes of our recent times, i feel sure that the chip's multi-layered and funkylicious offering is destined for immortality. it's almost worth getting up early to hear the instrumental version on radio 1 (uk station) being used as background funk for announcements and suchlike. well done chaps.
