Hot Chip

Previous albums from London electro-pop outfit Hot Chip always felt as neatly divided between get-on-the-floor rhythm-oriented outings (2006's The Warning) and more sedate mid-tempo explorations (2010's One Life Stand). This year's In Our Heads wisely splits the difference, largely avoiding fist-pumping beats but ensuring that even its gentlest moments have a subtly insistent rhythmic pulse. The end result is a new high-water mark for the always impressive septet, with dual frontmen Alexis Taylor and Joe Godard elevating their vocal chemistry by frequently favoring close harmonies. Effortlessly smooth album closer "Always Been Your Love" proves the boys could reinvent themselves as forward-thinking R&B crooners if audiences ever tire of their icy disco anthems. With Chromatics. 18+.
