Hot Chip creates mock-up of the Drudge Report for new album “Why Make Sense?”

By - Thursday, May 7th, 2015

British electronic music band Hot Chip is due to release their newest album Why Make Sense? (a great question) May 18th. If the rest of the album is anything like “Huarache Lights,” Why Make Sense? maintains the pop-inspired, electronic sound that is distinctively Hot Chip.

The UK is voting on new government today, and so the dry-humored band transformed its album website into a satirical mock-up of the Drudge Report, streaming the title track. Headlines like “EELCITON ON KNIFE’S EDGE; UK ON BRNIK” and “Obaamacre likned to icnreased ER oipiod prsecirptoins…,” are worth the scroll, especially as “Why Make Sense?” plays in the background.
