YACHT

There are five words slipped into the middle of "Night and Day" - the hyper-infectious, propulsive track that comes halfway through Hot Chip's fifth album - that in many ways sum up what's In Our Heads. Somewhere between the fizzing percussion and the relentless and addictive bassline, a processed voice intones the line, "I like Zapp not Zappa".

Although the Alexis Taylor penned words were written primarily as a reaction to ill-informed requests during the frontman's DJ gigs, if viewed as a statement of intent for the record as a whole they speak volumes. They seem to say this record is playful yet unburdened by extraneous fuss or showiness. That this is a joyous record aimed squarely at the heart and at the heart of the dancefloor.

It's worth pointing out that the new album represents the first time that the band - Alexis, Joe, Al Doyle, Owen Clarke and Felix Martin - had worked collectively in a studio with an engineer (Mark Ralph). As well as representing a change in the recording process, In Our Heads collects the band's first recordings for a new label. Following the completion of a three album deal with EMI, the band have moved operations to what could be seen as something of a spiritual home - Domino.
