Hot Chip, In Our Heads
Available June 12th
Instead of sitting in bed with keyboards in their laps, the Brit electro quintet Hot Chip scored a professional studio to lay down their fifth album on a sound desk built by legendary Kraftwerk producer Conny Plank. The disc, which kicks off strong with the killer electro-R&B jam "Motion Sickness," is packed with strings, marimba, vibraphone and steel-drum parts. "The record doesn't sound any more orthodox," says singer Alexis Taylor. "The opposite, in a way."
