Hot Chip – Why Make Sense?
If you’re looking for them, the clues are there in plain sight. Right there, in the glimmer and thump of opening track «Huarache Lights», a looped mantra nails Hot Chip’s collective psyche six albums in. It’s simple but pensive: «Replace us with the things that do the job better.» It's both a bold call to arms and a statement of nagging doubt. If they've been too long in the game, if they need replacing, somebody else better get on with it -and it better be good. Such ideas sit at the heart of Why Make Sense ?
