Biography

Hot Hot Heat is a Canadian indie rock band formed in 1999 from Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.

Dustin Hawthorne and Steve Bays had been in many different bands together since 1995 and met Hawley in 1998. In 1999, Hawley bought a Juno 6 keyboard and asked Bays to try playing it, as no one else knew how. Hawley took over the drums from Bays and Hawthorne played bass. Matthew Marnik, ...

Editorial Reviews

Hailing from Vancouver, British Columbia, Hot Hot Heat first came to prominence in 2002 with their breakthrough debut LP, Make Up The Breakdown, an electrifying dose of urgent, dancey rock anchored by frontman Steve Bays characteristic yelp and highly infectious melodies. Over the years, the Canadian band has delivered their kinetic brand of rock and roll live to thousands, toured the world with bands such as Modest Mouse, Kings Of Leon, The Walkmen and Queens of the Stone Age, and released several albums, garnering praise from everyone from Pitchfork to Rolling Stone and Spin who described their sound as aggressively exuberant funk-punk.

The band s latest album Future Breeds is a call to action. After leaving their previous label, the foursome stripped away all the unnecessary elements in their lives, built their own studio in Vancouver, and emerged renewed and recharged. The resulting record is at once propulsive and volcanic, and fueled, as ever, by candy-coated melodies that hurl you through Bays' lyrical world.

4.0 out of 5 stars With a song like "JFK's LSD," It Has To Be Good June 9, 2010
Format:MP3 Music
Hot Hot Heat is unmistakably an indie band, and one of the more quirky ones at that. They make wacky sounds, their songs have wacky names, and their music is new wave dance-punk indie rock post-punk revival. If you don't, then by all means stay away. But if you don't want to get out of the kitchen, then by all means, jump into the Hot Hot Heat.

For most of the album, the overall sound stays the same, with only slight experimentation. The results are that the album starts off great, but slowly wares on you as it goes on. Plus, the more electronics and synth are added, the more it seems to devolve. Still, songs like "21@12" are still worth the price of admission for at least a listen.

Overall, an enjoyable indie rock album that goes in some interesting directions, but ultimately fails to come together as a whole. Parts of it are quite good, but the album never returns on the bright promises at the beginning of the album. Still, it has some great song titles.

Real Score: 3.5/5

3.0 out of 5 stars And I want to see results April 20, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Hot Hot Heat get off the major label merry-go-round and back on the Indie Label train for "Future Breeds," which throws off the smoothness of "Happiness Ltd." and goes back to quirky post-new wave. Lead singer Steve Bays sounds loads edgier than anything from "Happiness," and some of the songs spike with oddball electronic energy. "Future Breeds" sounds like HHH once again dropped in from the early 80's to rev-up some MTV-ready video-wave tunes. It also makes "Future Breeds" an uneven album.

Fortunately, the leaden middle of the album ("JFK's LSD," "Jedediah") is counter-balanced by the straightforward cool stuff on either end. There's the frantic ""Implosionistic" and fantastic pop of "Goddess of The Prairie,' along with the old HHH sounding "21@12" (which comes out as 21 at midnight). And I love the line from the closing cut, "Nobody's Accusing You of Having a Good Time" that snorts "some days the grim reaper isn't looking so grim." Stuff like that is what made me an HHH fan in the first place.

When I first caught wind of HHH, it was because of Bray's Robert Smith yelp, which sounded like The Cure being backed by Elvis Costello's Attractions. "Happiness" was an attempt at smoothing things out for major consumption, even if it did boast better songs. With "Future Breeds," they're back where they started, but this time I think only aficionados - like me - are the ones that will really dig it.

4.0 out of 5 stars high energy super fun December 24, 2010
By NYKati
Format:Audio CD
So the guy has annoying hair. So they are from Canada. So you haven't heard from them since their hit a few years back. But guess what? This album is AWESOME! I saw these guys live a while back and was shocked by how good they are, and this album is their best recording by far. They never sucked but somehow I never really connected with them before, but this is just pure, high energy, dance-rocky fun, and absolutely worth purchasing. I especially recommend "JFK's LSD" and "Zero results".

These guys still have a very unique sound. Loves me some Hot Hot Heat. Probably why I put Sriracha on everything.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable and very different album by HHH. March 4, 2013
By James
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album is entirely different from any album prior. Not to say it isn't good! I personally enjoy Future Breeds in its own respected way! It is certainly an album that can grow on you, if you are willing to roll with the wackiness and LSD vibes it has to it. There are some great songs on here...I would say my favorite track is "Goddess on the Prairie"
