Hot Chip – Coming On Strong

Hot Chip wear influences like yellow Livestrong bracelets– quietly, gallantly, but a bit too noticeably. The Beach Boys, Prince, Ween, 60s girl groups, Dr. Dre, Devo, Stevie Wonder, Madlib: Each hallmark has their moment, or idea borrowed. The sum of inspiration isn’t always rectitude, but Hot Chip make it work for them. American heavyweight counterparts LCD Soundsystem, a more forceful, knowing act, are clearly an influence, and “Down With Prince” is Hot Chip’s “Daft Punk Is Playing at My House”. Admiration is draped all over the production– clipped hollow snares, noodly bass line, funk keyboards– and it’s impressive that they don’t get us rolling on the ground with an opener like “I’m sick of motherfuckers tryna tell me that they’re down with Prince.”
