Album · 2015 · 10 Songs. Though they’ve always boasted a winning sense of humor, Hot Chip are nothing if not sincere.

Why Make Sense? Hot Chip. Release date: 18 May 2015. Country: United Kingdom. Album-opener Huarache Lights with its bass stabs and warped synthesisers, metamorphoses the Nike Trainer into a symbol of ritual and comfort for Alexis Taylor on nights out clubbing/DJ-ing - When I see the beams of those Huarache Lights, I know every single thing will be just right. Although personal to Taylor, its use as a narrative device is instantly transportive, triggering hippocampal neurones to fire, thus allowing the listener to recall the ritualism and anticipatory excitement of their own nights out.

Hot Chip's sixth studio album, Why Make Sense?, marks a departure from a number of characteristics that have defined the band over time. To begin, WMS? is the first album that the five piece live band has recorded together. That live dynamic adds warmth, looseness and what one might call a playful energy to the songs. Why Make Sense is a cool and collected album that will easily induce dancing-such as with Easy To Get; an upbeat song that starts quietly with plucky bass, guitar and high synths before transitioning to a house mix for the last 40 seconds. Something remarkable starts to come into view by the end of Hot Chip’s new album.

Hot Chip return with a sixth album, recorded against a background of the band’s concerns about whether or not they remain relevant in today’s dance and electronic scenes. They really needn’t have worried however as Why Make Sense? is an album that once again shows how lucky we are to have a band like Hot Chip. They don’t have to worry about fitting in or remaining relevant as they’ve always been their own men; aware of their influences but always producing their own sound and feel

A great release by Hot Chip, 'Why Make Sense?' is an improvement in comparison to the two previous albums of the band, yet below 'The Warning' and 'Made in the Dark'. Best track(s): Cry for You, Easy to Get and Need You Now. Worst track(s): So Much Further to Go.
