About Made In The Dark by Hot Chip:
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.
