Beau­ti­ful Thing (Domino)

Irish Independent - Weekend Review - - FRONT PAGE -

The Hot Chip front­man re­leased a sparse, plain­tive solo de­but (Pi­ano) a few years ago, but this fol­lowup is a much more ex­pan­sive of­fer­ing, while still dif­fer­ing sig­nif­i­cantly from his band work. There’s dreamy elec­tron­ica (‘Deep Cut’) and com­par­a­tively con­ven­tional bal­lads (‘I Feel You’), and while few songs can match the best of Hot Chip, there’s a be­guil­ing qual­ity to his in­ti­mate ru­mi­na­tions.
