The Warning by Hot Chip

The Warning by Hot Chip

Striking album from the relatively undiscovered Hot Chip, this disk is filled with entertaining indie electro-pop that is both immediately accessible and curiously deep.

It was "Bulletproof" that hit me. La Roux's self titled album contains the essence of 80's New Wave, featuring synth sequences that would fit in songbooks of Blancmange, The Human League, Dead or Alive and Eurythmics. I think La Roux would have been huge back in the dance era of the Thompson Twins and Thomas Dolby, but I'm happy they are part of a new dance explosion bent on geminating fans of Tecktonik (TCK), Electro Dance, Milky Way, Vertigo, and anything post-Emo.

  • Maroon 5 have released two multi-platinum studio albums (2002’s Songs About Jane and 2007’s It Won’t Be Soon Before Long), scored a string of hit singles (“This Love,” “She Will Be Loved,” “Harder to Breathe,” “Sunday Morning,” “M... Maroon 5 have released two multi-platinum studio albums (2002’s Songs About Jane and 2007’s It Won’t Be Soon Before Long), scored a string of hit singles (“This Love,” “She Will Be Loved,” “Harder to Breathe,” “Sunday Morning,” “Makes Me Wonder”), won three Grammy Awards, and sold 15 million albums around the world. Now the Los Angeles quintet is back with its third-studio album, entitled Hands All Over — a killer hybrid of rock, pop, funk, and R&B, that showcases the band’s considerable strengths: buoyant, unforgettable melodies, sleek, stylish grooves, charged lyrics about turbulent relationships, and crisp, dynamic performances. Adam Levine, the band’s lyricist, began writing the songs that appear on Hands All Over after winding down from a world tour in support of It Won’t Be Soon Before Long. A few months later, Maroon 5 received a phone call from veteran studio wizard Robert John “Mutt” Lange (AC/DC, Foreigner, The Cars), who had heard that Maroon 5 were beginning to write a new album and expressed an interest in producing it. “We didn’t even talk to anyone else,” Levine says. “Mutt is undeniably one of the most successful producers who’s ever lived.” Levine’s first performing experience — in fact the event that ignited his desire to become a singer and musician — actually involves Lange. The story goes like this: 20 years ago, when Levine was 10, he attended a friend’s birthday party “at one of those places in the San Fernando Valley where the kids dress up in rock’n’roll gear and lip-sync their favorite songs,” he says. Levine chose the Def Leppard classic “Pour Some Sugar On Me.” “I knew I could sing because my music teacher told me I had a voice, but I had never really performed before. I grabbed the mic and just went for it. Afterwards I knew that I’ve got to do this for the rest of my life. That’s what got the whole ball rolling for me.” The classic anthem “Pour Some Sugar On Me” was, of course, famously produced by Lange. “If that’s not a full 360, I don’t know what is,” Levine says. “It doesn’t get more circular than that.” - Quoted from Amazon

De Britse Imogen Heap brak met het geheel met vocoder opgenomen single Hide and Seek door, heeft een enorme online fanbase op Twitter, Facebook en Mypace en is nu terug met Ellipse, haar 3e CD en opvolger van Speak For Yourself (2005) en I Megaphone (1998). Na het poppy First Train Home lijkt Wait It Out de Hide & Seek van Ellipse. Muzikale progressie of ingeslagen andere wegen zijn er niet. Tamelijk onschuldig kabbelen de nummers voort (Little Bird, Swoon, Between Sheets), zoals dat ook bij de albums van A-Ha en Dido gebeurt. Earth grijpt er wat percussie bij en knipoogt vocaal naar Alanis Morissette, zoals ook op 2-1. In Tidal verschuift de instrumentatie van strijkers en drum'n'bass uit een doosje naar 80's synth arpeggio's, terwijl Heap in staccato doorzingt. Aha sprankelt ondanks de 'lala' frasen. Na het 2 minuten tussenspel The Fire op piano en het geluid van knapperend haardhout pakt de akoestische gitaar in Canvas de draad weer op. De ruimtelijke synth soundscapes doen hier aan landgenoten Note For A Child denken. Half Life schommelt je zachtjes naar het eind. Sommige tracks zijn goed doordacht, het geheel te mager voor een rijpingstijd van 3 jaar.

  • Really relaxing but still fun and slightly poppy tunes. The lead singer has one of those soft voices usually reserved for whiny songs, but with a guitar-electro-fused background, it comes off wonderfully soothing and pleasant.
