Hot Hot Heat’s return to the independent scene is a welcome one. Some bands just need to be independent or on an independent label and Hot Hot Heat is one of those bands. Mixing in new wave music with independent rock and distorted vocals they make “Future Breeds” an enjoyable listen. The entire album is filled with catchy, foot-tapping tracks that will keep you bouncing and energized throughout. Like bands like The Stokes and The White Stripes, Hot Hot Heat has always had that ‘dirty’ vibe to them, using a lot of natural distortion. They’ve managed to keep themselves different by using synths and keys and those types of things and have some interesting production throughout their music. “Future Breeds” has some of the band’s most interesting stuff to date with odd fades, strange reverbs, and some attention-grabbing moments of instrumentation. Hot Hot Heat’s latest album isn’t as good as their early work but it’s the perfect welcome back to the indy scene that you’d expect.
