Hot Chip Stream New Album on NPR

This week, NPR’s 'First Listen' series is streaming the upcoming LP, In Our Heads, from UK electro outfit Hot Chip. Set to be released on June 12th via Domino Records, the 11-track effort was recorded in London and produced by the band themselves, with additional production and engineering by Mark Ralph.

Of late, Hot Chip has slowly grown more sincere and less self-consciously ironic, more romantic but no less nerdy. On In Our Heads, the band knit together references to sounds that made the band possible: Chicago house, Kraftwerk, funk, soft rock, soul. But it's softer and heavier, an album that sounds like it was made by someone (or five someones) deeply in love.
