Hot Hot Heat Preparation Post

April 2, 2008


I feel completely guilty for not having posted before now! Hi, I’m Steph.

With the same idea as Nick’s with Modest Mouse, here is your (un)official Hot Hot Heat preparation. In case you weren’t aware, Hot Hot Heat have the opening slot for Modest Mouse on their sideshow tour. Both bands will also appear around the country at V Festival.

In much the same way as Modest Mouse, Hot Hot Heat released their latest album last year, entitled Happiness Ltd. Unlike MM, this album went relatively un-noticed by the music community. Some people had not even realised they’d made a release, others had decided not to bother with the band since the previous release, Elevator had deemed them ‘sell-outs’ and their music far too poppy for the ears of their precious indie fans. Granted, their ‘debut’ release Makeup the Breakdown (commonly known as their first LP, but is actually their second) is by far their best work, but I would not go so far as to completely disregard their subsequent albums! Happiness Ltd. has some outstanding material on it, and if you were previously a HHH fan and have not yet given it a listen, may I strongly urge you to do so.

Hoping to hear a good mix from all three of their major label (Sub-pop counts as major, ok) albums, hopefully Makeup the Breakdown material will get a good portion of the set-list.

Hot Hot Heat – Goodnight Goodnight – Elevator
Hot Hot Heat – Bandages – Make Up the Breakdown
Hot Hot Heat – Let Me In – Happiness, Ltd.
