#19 Hot Chip - Flutes

image

Something in my heart is loose/There’s never been a better day.’ I wasn’t a fan of Hot Chip. They seemed to suffer from that over-clever fussiness I spoke of before about Django Django but with added naff quirkiness. But in the middle of this year’s In Our Heads they produced a double whammy of rightness, the elastic, funk-pop of Night and Day and the moody urban-pulse of Flutes, a seven minute epic of emotional confusion that seems to mainline, somehow, the heart-beat of modern life, its euphoria and helplessness, an underlying feeling that everything is fluid and beautiful and wrong.
