#38-HOT CHIP-One Life Stand (EMI)

Hot Chip had earned their reputation as a singles band. While some of the most impressive electropop anthems of the noughties have their signature, their albums have always lacked some cohesion and been fairly irregular. ‘One Night Stand’ was a successful attempt to break that spell and arguably their more coherent long play to date. Without losing their ability to write astonishing tunes, always wrapped in the most up to date production (‘I Feel Better’; ‘Take It In’ and the title track count among their best tracks), maybe this time was their new found softer touch –they were never keen on ballads before- what helped getting the balance right.
