Vinyl LP - Sealed
Hot Chip have built a devoted fanbase with their soulfully eclectic records and incendiary live shows. Highly-anticipated by fans and media alike, One Life Stand is the bands most boldly accomplished record yet, at once offbeat and anthemic, cerebral and danceable.
Made in the Dark is the third studio album from the British electronic indie pop outfit Hot Chip, originally released on EMI in 2008. The release is the amazing and ambidextrous follow-up to their massively acclaimed, Mercury Music Prize nominated 2006 album The Warning. Regarded as the definitive Hot Chip record, Made In The Dark is faster and rockier than The Warning, but that's only beginning to scratch the surface.
Within its 13 tracks there is both rhythmical chaos ("Shake A Fist," "Bendable Poseable"), soulful introspection ("We’re Looking For A Lot Of Love," "Made In The Dark," "In The Privacy Of Our Love") and even contemporary widescreen pop ("Ready For The Floor," "One Pure Thought"). The songs are propulsive, repetitive, rhythmical, methodical, wonky, intimate, beautiful and uniquely Hot Chip.

Vinyl records are able to capture the purest quality of recorded music in true form. This is possible because the initial recording is captured on an analog source (usually tape) for the ultimate in High Fidelity sound, it is then pressed onto virgin vinyl. Analog recordings capture the bottom end (or bass) while adding sweetness to the high end (or treble) better than any digital recording ever could. Analog systems are still commonly used before they are digitally transferred to CD. This means that the sound then is altered in the transfer process when CD's are produced. The word fidelity means accuracy and faithfulness. High Fidelity sound is faithful to the original sound made by the artist, capturing maximum accuracy of what was intended for the listener to hear. Vinyl records capture those sounds for the ultimate High Fidelity listening experience!
180/200 GRAM Vinyl LP
These vinyl records are produced with 180 or 200 grams of high definition premium grade virgin vinyl. This is a higher quality audiophile pressing than the typical vinyl record of 100-120 grams. These limited edition LP's are manufactured with the hi-fi enthusiast in mind. A 180 or 200 gram LP is sometimes also referred to as an audiophile pressing, there is a higher bass response and an even warmer High Fidelity sound. 180 or 200 grams LP's are typically manufactured in limited amounts and are considered collectables, commanding a higher price.
Typically, a vinyl reissue is a repressing of an original LP, usually extracted from the recording's master-tapes. In some cases, reissues are remastered to lower surface noise and improve overall sonics. Reissues help preserve the music of an original recording, especially when original LPs become unavailable or can no longer be found. Reissues can be pressed on a variety of thickness from 150 gram to 200 gram and offer a great opportunity for records collectors to own many classic recordings.
