Half Notes: Hot Hot Heat, "Talk To Me, Dance With Me" (2003)

Share this:

The next step beyond the ‘new’ garage rock movement? Successors to The Strokes, The White Stripes, The Hives, etc? Man, this tune really reminds me of the New Wave era. Maybe it’s the Robert Smith-like vocals. The snarky Gang Of Four-ish guitar line doesn’t hurt either. And geez, is that a synth I hear? The rhythm section is fun too. (I’m a sucker for a great guitar riff).

‘Half Notes’ are quick-take thoughts on music from Something Else! Reviews, presented whenever the mood strikes us.
