Hot Chip The Warning
- Words: Fred Miketa
- Label: DFA-Astralwerks
Hot Chip possesses the power to make shy people scream, "Fuck the world!" while jiggling their asses in the most liberated fashion. The Warning finds this libidinous British quintet infecting listeners with witty, bassy, and poppy layers of captivatingly sardonic soul. Aside from the swaggering bounce of the single "Over and Over," rhythmic ballads like "Look After Me" and "The Warning" could bring Isaac Hayes to tears. Hot Chip comes out swinging with a thoroughly dynamic mesh of Italo-infused basslines, thumping drums, and effortless vocals that culminate in heavenly, rhythmic bliss.
