ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Hot Seconds are a Brooklyn, New York-based indie-rock outfit formed in 2007. Citing a wide array of Brit-pop/rock influences, their sound manages to meld the urgency/street-smart storytelling of The Clash, the aural collage/majestic grandeur of Spiritualized as well as the raw, funked-up, immediacy of Primal Scream, tied together with a love of all things Manchester.

UK-born singer/songwriter James Love and composer/producer Eran Westwood, whose credits include, among others, seminal industrial godfathers Front 242 and 90\'s New York City band Spill, became acquainted through a chance meeting and, in discovering their mutual passion for Brit pre/post-punk/rock, set out to work on a few songs for a \"project\" EP. Far surpassing their expectations and delighted with the fruits of said efforts, it was decided to develop/re-envision the project and the duo decided to put a full band together in order to translate these songs live. Soon thereafter, Ian Hudgins was tapped to man the drums, along with veteran NYC bassist/guitarist Johnny McNabb and jack-of-all-trades Marcel Simoneau and Hot Seconds was born.

Wow
Great album, my favorite of the moment is Excuse Me. because of the slashing guitars, primal beat, and classic vocal sound. Buy the CD, buy the MP3s. Totally worth it.

From start to finish this is a good record. Hot Seconds hooks you at the first song and keeps you firmly hooked the entire record. It\'s one of a handful of records I\'ve bought this year that I don\'t find myself skipping to the next song. The lyrics are catchy and cleaver ... kudos to lyricist James Love. A particular highlight is the delightful \"Went To India,\" a lyrical jab at scenesters, self-created street cred and trend of the moment spiritual beliefs. Another highlight, \"Holy Moly,\" a fun trip through the land of paranoia. This is a well put together debut effort. I look forward to hearing more from these guys.

Manchester via Brooklyn? Not nearly as oddball as it sounds. In fact, once you strap on the headphones and let this take you over, you\'ll slip right into it, probably wondering how songs as uncannily accessible as these can sound so today and so 1989 (in the best way), all at once. These aren\'t dark stabs at reinvigorating an imagined Charlatans b-side (though the Charlatans comparison isn\'t far off), and they\'re not tributary one-offs specifically intended to remind of us a time when popular music was great (though they do invoke a bit of that). This is a new entity, one that wisely embraces all the best parts of something we should have never let go in the first place. With his UK roots pinned to his shirt, singer/songwriter James Love carefully injects that distinct feel into melody-heavy tracks that certainly wouldn\'t sound out of place in NY either. The band has found a balance, tapping into the best parts of both these influences and creating songs that are familiar in mood and execution, but starkly new in content and construction. So don\'t scream \"Madchester!\" Nobody wants that. But if these tracks take you back there for a second, don\'t worry, but don\'t get lost. You\'re here, in the now. And you\'ll be glad that this album is with you.
