Boomkat Product Review:
*JEWEL CASE EDITION* Now that we've all had plenty of time for single 'Ready For The Floor' to well and truly seep into the collective pop unconscious, Hot Chip at long last deliver their third album, hoping to cement themselves as one of the most successful electronic acts of our age. You certainly get the impression that confidence has grown since these guys last set about formulating an album: the rampant geekery of Alexis Taylor's voice seems far less awkward, and the feel of the production is looser, perhaps even more inventive than on prior albums, with muscular synth funk and surreal studio shenanigans brightening up 'Shake A Fist', and an ample reservoir of future single potential in 'Touch Too Much' and 'One Pure Thought' and 'Hold On', to name but three. Made In The Dark has its share of slow jams to break up the pace (its title track being a good example of one such composition) but possibly the most interesting example of this sort of material comes on closer 'In The Privacy Of Our Love', which could easily have sounded a bit soppy in the wake of the more hard-hitting numbers on the album, but fortunately, the feathery vocals and piano runs are bolstered by some thoroughly weird clicks and pops making up a backbeat of loose connections and faulty audio. It's heartening to think that something as peculiar as this is destined to fly high in the charts.
