Top of 2008 #3: Hot Chip-Made in the Dark

Hands down, Hot Chip is one of my two favorite bands making music right now. I mean there are a lot of bands that I love their work, but only two whose I really choose to follow very closely (the other being the Decemberists, if you haven’t noticed). Made in the Dark is exactly why I love them. They can bounce so many different styles of music, and do it well, that it makes me sick. In a good way.

The fact that Made in the Dark has floor-fillers like “Ready for the Floor” and “One Pure Thought” and “Hold On,” and then throw in slow james like “We’re Looking for a Lot of Love” and “Made in the Dark,” along with the quirky nerd jams like “Wrestlers” and “Don’t Dance.” The album spawned handfuls of remixes too. I just love their shape-shifting abilities and am always eager to hear something new from these guys.
