Hot Chip x Four Tet

Four Tet steps up take on Hot Chip’s soulful track “Look At Where We Are” transforming it into a playful and hypnotic house track. The last two-thirds of the track is really when Four Tet begins to dig deep into the land of the vibes.

Hot Chip : Don’t Deny Your Heart

Hot Chip’s fifth album “In Our Heads” is like their past 4 albums melded into one and distilled down to all that is great about Hot Chip. They touch upon every extreme in their repertoire – from their deep dancefloor vibes (“Flutes”) to their soulful side (“Look at Where We Are”) to their power-pop/songwriter side.

“Dont Deny Your Heart” dives into that epic power-pop side of Hot Chip with its playful synths and its modulating chord progression. It is a song that nods at tracks like Christopher Cross’ “All Right” and Andrew Gold’s “Lonely Boy” while still retaining that synth-nerd vibes that Hot Chip is known for. I am especially a big fan of the angular, Devo-esque outro. “In Our Heads” is definitely Hot Chip’s most self-indulgent album, a work that allowed them to stroke every facet of their musical egos – something I am not mad about.

Be sure to check out a live rendition of “Don’t Deny Your Heart” that the band performed on the Jools Holland Show a few weeks back. It really comes to life, especially with their lovely female drummer.

Hot Chip – One Life Stand

I have slowly become a fan of Hot Chip. I am starting to understand their vibe and aesthetic and they are definitely doing a good job paying homage to all the 80s British New Wave acts. My fav tune of their’s is “The Warning”, I just love the glockenspiel, the programmed beats as well as the lyrical themes.

This new tune “One Life Stand” is a dark new wave track that reminds me of OMD/Human League- looking forward to their new album coming out February Twenty-Ten.
