Noughties #94: Hot Chip "Made In The Dark" (EMI, 2008)

Hot Chip are unique, though at the same time they are the quintessential noughties band. They have swallowed their musical influences hole and regurgitated them, creating off-kilter and strangely minimal left-field pop/dance/rock mutations of their own. Ready for the Floor, their breakthrough single, must surely be one of the most oddly surprisingly chart hits since Thomas Dolby's Hyperactive, and this album is their most consistent.
