Editorial Reviews

On the heels of their critically acclaimed EP, This Desert, Brooklyn's The Hundred in the Hands will release their debut full-length September 21 on Warp Records. Time Out New York says "The Hundred in the Handsâ TM music springs from that sliver of the early '80s in which pop was personal, arty and potentially angry," while Brooklyn Vegan calls their EP "a bit post-punky, a bit shoegaze-y but sounds like now. And you can dance to it." The new recording follows the bandâ TMs first national tour and a wave of critical praise from the U.K. and Europe.
The Hundred in the Hands is an album of deceptively complex pop songs which hark back to the dance music of NYC's storied underground. Where their recent EP feels like a summertime pop dream, THITH's album conjures the spirit of downtown's
mutant disco scene as made legendary by clubs like the Paradise Garage.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow September 30, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Great. Dancey, smart, elegant. Reminds me of Nico and the Velvet Undeground, but with trained voices. Voice used as a percussive pop in lieu of drum, for rhythm. Listen to it on a good stereo in a big room because production values are very good. Songs are music first, then a story line emerges after several listenings. Also read the lyrics. Buy it. You will love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't get enough of their commotion ... September 25, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Excellent debut album - has some very catchy tunes that could make the pop charts. My favorite is Commotion - starts out fast and Everdell's evocative buildup is bound to have your head shaking before she reaches the chorus - the song felt familiar the first time I heard it. Pigeons has the line you can't get out your head - Saturday comes, Sunday comes, we go ... Dressed in Dresden rounds out my top 3. The first three tracks Young, Lovesick and Killing are very good as is Last City - there's not one misstep on this album. Everdell has a great voice at times reminding me of Dido. They put on a great set at the album release show at Brooklyn's Coco 66 - Jason Friedman's hard-driving guitar was particularly enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my absolute favorites March 12, 2013
Format:Audio CD
This is about as definitive a 5-star album as they come. In the genre of post-punk electro-dance-80s-indie rock (let's just call it electro-indie), this may be my single favorite album, or a close tie with Metric's Live It Out. The more I listen to it, the more I realize nearly every track on the album is outstanding. The same can't be said of their follow-up album, which unfortunately took far too much inspiration from The XX and became overly moody, but this album positively screams energy and originality. Tracks like Pigeons and Last City were born for the radio, though sadly they never have received much airplay, while tracks like Lovesick and Dressed in Dresden will burrow into your head after a few listens with their almost criminally addictive riffs. Anyone who says this band is just taking the synth-sound of the 80s and exploiting it don't appreciate how well The Hundred In The Hands blends modern electro dance music with punk sentimentality and that natural indie flare you can't force. Do yourself a favor and buy this album.

Fans of this album might also like: Metric, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The New Young Pony Club.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Hundred In The Hands - The Hundred In The Hands September 23, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Indie dance has hit it stride in the past few years, and The Hundred in the Hands' self-titled debut underscores this. Starting off with a Moroder-like synth and 80s-cool vocals on "Young Aren't Young," to the more rock-oriented "Lovesick (Once Again)," they manage to have their crossover status and eat it too! (The presence of production wunderkind Richard X doesn't hurt one bit, either.) "Killing It" goes a more subtle route, keeping the electronics burbling underneath the vocals, whereas they're much more prominent on the upbeat "Commotion." "Gold Blood" goes a bit too far in its rock stylings without achieving the rough edginess that it's aiming at towards the start, but "Dressed In Dresden" has the growl that it was aiming for. But it's "Pigeons" that takes the cake here with its catchy chorus and steady beat. It's plenty to have in your hands.
