Hot Hot heat
Hot Hot Heat’s new self-titled album, their fifth full-length, punctuates their career. It’s the final release from a band that has innovated and explored, reminding the listener of what they’ve built since the group unveiled their debut album Make Up The Breakdown in 2002. Written between 2011 and 2014, the band moved away from the experimental sensibility they investigated on 2010’s Future Breeds and looked back toward their first two albums for inspiration. The idea was to be as natural as possible and get in touch with their inherent skill for songwriting. After penning a batch of songs, the band gathered in 2014 to record the ten best with Canadian musician and producer Ryan Dahle, who worked on Future Breeds, in frontman Steve Bays and Ryan’s adjoining studios.
