Album Review: “One Life Stand”- Hot Chip

Okay, first things first: do yourself a favour and watch THIS VIDEO.

So now you have an idea of the awesomeness that Hot Chip has achieved. That song appears on their newest album, One Life Stand.

It is 10 tracks of pure groovy beats and addictive tunage. I remember having a conversation once where I said I preferred LCD Soundsystem to Hot Chip, and after listening to this album I would like to apologize to the world for being retarded. One Life Stand is already an early contender for LP of the year and the above video for “I Feel Better” is the weirdest, funniest, and generally one of the greatest music videos I have seen in quite a while. I have watched the damn thing over more than 15 times.

Hot Chip‘s synthetic sound is like candy to the ears. I personally liked the first 3 tracks the best, but it is fantastic as a whole. Not every song is its own unique entity, the album is consistent and makes for an epic opus of sweetness, a lot like last year’s Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix from Phoenix. Smoke a doob, take some E, hook your nipples up to some clamps attached to a car battery, and give Hot Chip‘s One Life Stand a spin. Highly recommended!
