Hot Chip
One Life Stand
Release Date: February 9, 2010

Warmer, deeper and more stripped back than their previous record Made In the Dark- One Life Stand is still conscientiously crafted and informed by the kind of intelligent evaluation that is now second nature to Hot Chip. The seductive and surprisingly glossy finish they can deliver when the mood takes them is enhanced by an ... Read more in Amazon's Hot Chip Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Album This Year November 2, 2006
By DynaMo
Format:Audio CD
I won't bother with highbrow recitals. Let me just say that this album and this band will rock you and keep you adictively coming back for more. It's rare to find such a well-rounded, well-balanced release--not a single track is lacking and each one has something strong to offer. I've played it for several friends and not one can stop listening. You'll feel the fool if you don't hop on the Hot Chip waggon. This band is going places. Also check out their first album--it's extremely satisfying as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars I don't know a damn thing about Hot Chip... August 15, 2006
Format:Audio CD
apart from a few tracks on this album (my rommate owns it so therefore I have heard smatterings from it), but I can say that 'Over and Over' is worth the price of admission on its own. I never thought that six minutes of 4/4 time, a few adroitly placed guitar lines, thumping bass and whining keyboards could be so damn catchy, but I was wrong. I'm a man, I can admit when I'm wrong. 'Over and Over' is the newest entry into my top 25 of all time list.

A few other songs from this album catch me as well, but I don't know what they're called. Suffice to say that this album is way better than their debut.

4.0 out of 5 stars WARNING: YOU WILL LIKE THIS December 27, 2006
Format:Audio CD
On their second album, Hot Chip has continued to play with what makes them interesting. Stark electronic blips sit next to accessable melodic arrangments, and the marriage works even better this time around.

The tracks overall, bounce off each other to create a complete record experience. A song like Boy From School is a retro-flavored pop masterpiece, sounding like a cousin of OMD or New Order, you'll be singing along from the very first listen. Other tracks are far more difficult but no-less rewarding. The Warning, is great because it plays with the idea of musical catagories and the stigmas that go with them. The idea of geeky keyboard fans being violent and tough is funny, and that's the gist of the tune. Then there is the single which has garnered the most attention for the band, and its a dandy. Over and Over, has an insane, yet catchy hook, and really great lyrics to boot! Anyone that I've ever played this for has fallen in love with it, its just one of those songs that anyone can get into, and instantly like.

While the rest of the record doesn't quite leap the lead singles' lofty bar, it does a really great job of complementing the different styles and vibes, that without skill, could get very chaotic to the listener. If you are a fan of electronic music, and like a bit of experimentaton mixed with your straight forward pop, you won't find a better blend of a unique, and fun songs on any one record this year.

4.0 out of 5 stars a great album November 15, 2006
Format:Audio CD
the harmonies that go on here are what really propel this album. Electronics are wondrful too, but it's the vocal play that keeps this album out of generic electro, and pushes into it's own category. One of the few albums that's both immediately infectuous, yet has long lasting appeal. Which is altogether too rare these days. Well worth the purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fair warning August 29, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Fledgling UK electropop band Hot Chip have found greater success with their second album, "The Warning," but thankfully have not sold their souls to do so.

This sophomore album is simply exploding with experiments and ideas, so much so that an otherwise amazing album gets a little drippy around the edges. Give them a few more years, and Hot Chip will be blowing our minds with the bravest, wildest electronica. For the moment, they're still trying their wings.

It opens with the retro drones of "Careful," right before the song suddenly settles into a more expansive little groove. It sounds torn between retro synth and the artier edges that they are so, so good at. They stabilize their sound somewhat in "And I Was A Boy From School," with its steady beats and catchy little melody.

From there on, Hot Chip experiments with just about any sound that electropop can include -- airy little ballads, hip-hoppish dance music, delicate beats like something from Telepopmusik, grimy robot rock, twinkly little art tunes, and some Kraftwerk-inspired techno. In other words, they will twist those amazing art beats into... anything, really.

Not many bands can do EVERY kind of music with more or less successful results, but Hot Chip is pretty good at all kinds of music. The only problem is that they seem to be a bit torn between the popular retro sound, and the more out-there art sounds. In songs like "Careful," it feels awkward and unbalanced.

But once they work the kinks out of that, Hot Chip will probably have few musical flaws at all. They have a knack for putting the right beats in the right places, and excel at deceptively simple melodies that never stop being catchy -- even the quieter ones can draw you in and make you mumble the words.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mostly slick album of summer electro pop June 26, 2006
Format:Audio CD
On the second album from the young UK band Hot Chip, it sounds like they're still working some kinks out in a few places. In large part, the group locks into a batch of electronic pop tracks that delightfully throwback to the 80s with a nod forward, but there are a couple places on The Warning where it sounds like they're simply trying a bit too hard to mix things up, and the drastic changes break the flow of the otherwise smooth disc.

Opening track "Careful" teeters delightfully on the edge between the two halves of their sound, balancing some nice vocal harmonies and a pretty group chorus on top of choppy breakbeat programming and somewhat dissonant synth stabs that threaten to derail the whole thing. Fortunately, they never do, and on the following track the group kicks out one of the best singles of the year. "And I Was A Boy From School" floats some breathy vocals over dizzying, relentless synth arpeggios and beat programming that just keeps pushing forward until the sparkling finale.

The Warning is by no means a one-song wonder, either, as the group drops the hyper-dancy, handclap-laced "Over And Over" about a third of the way into the disc and both musically and lyrically seem to embrace the fun of mindless euro-pop. Another gem is the album-titled "The Warning," which juxtaposes some pretty chime melodies and lush but subtle programming with somewhat aggressive lyrics that you can't help but want to sing along with.

As mentioned before, it seems like in a few places the group seems to just toss in random tracks that don't really work. "Tchaparian" is all buzzy synths and choppy beats that feel completely out of place, while "Arrest Yourself" features over-the-top filtered vocals, horn synths, and clanky beats that stick out on the otherwise slick album.
