Hot Chip - You Ride, We Ride, In My Ride

The first thing I heard from Hot Chip was the cool remix they did for The Go! Team's Ladyflash single. Lately I've been reading a lot of buzz about their debut album Coming On Strong, released in North America last month through DFA/Astralwerks. To be honest, at first listen the album didn't really grab me, but I think it just takes some time to grow on you. Coming On Strong is a chilled-out electronic album with subtle beats and a loungey retro feel. Call me crazy but on more than one occasion they kind of reminded me of a funkier version of The Postal Service.
