Hot Chip's album, In Our Heads, was released yesterday. I did preview the album over at NPR, and I have to say that I liked what I heard.
Hot Chip spent the last 18 hours flying in from London. If they were at all jetlagged, it didn't show. They were more excited about Minneapolis with lead singer Alexis Taylor proudly wearing his Prince T-shirt and their new drummer (who played his first show with Hot Chip last night.)
Fans that were lucky enough to get a ticket to this sold-out show were bopping and dancing throughout their set list, even at their slowest songs (which they don't really have many).
As expected, they played songs from their latest album, In Our Heads, including "Don't Deny Your Heart", "Night & Day", "Flutes", and "How Do You Do?" (which ended their set). Personally, I kind of wished they did more old songs like "Over And Over", which got a strong reaction from the crowd.
Three songs for the encore, one of which was their big hit song, "Ready for the Floor". The song was nominated for the Grammy Award for 2008 and was #6 in the UK charts.
Hot Chip's album, In Our Heads, is out now, you can hear those new songs played live on their North American tour.
