35. Hot Chip, In Our Heads
Released: June 11th
Now five albums deep, it seems that Hot Chip has found their comfort zone and flexed their creative muscle on their fifth studio album, In Our Heads. The album is a collision of different genres, jumping from synth dance music to slow and deep ballads, but it still manages to avoid confusion. The fact that songs like "Let Him Be Him" and "Flutes," which both clock in at over seven minutes, don't seem a second too long is a testament to the power of the music and the message the songs carry. On this album, Hot Chip manages to keep their indie cred, and all that goes with that, while proving that they know how to make great pop songs. How hot is that?
