NME Review-Hot Hot Heat

3 09 2010

Here’s a reprint of my review of the Hot Hot Heat record that ran in the NME a while back.

Hot Hot Heat

Future Breeds (Dine Alone)


After releasing four albums of varying quality over the last decade, we think it’s fair to say that Hot Hot Heat’s career has turned rather tepid of late. Still, the Vancouver-based geek-funk group are making a good fist of it on their fifth opus though and for the most part it crackles and fizzes with electro-punk tinged invention. The jerky ‘Implosionatic’ cranks the temperature up a notch and is easily the best cut on the record, but if you’re looking for ‘Bandages Part II’ then you’ll have to join Theo Walcott on the “bitterly disappointed bench.” Edwin McFee
