    Thank you!
    Earlier today I had a look at some (mostly mainstream) of the upcoming releases in the coming months and found roughly ten records I’m curious to find out more about.
    Listening to some new stuff from Hot Chip now, sounds nice.

    I haven’t heard the new single from Hot Chip but The Warning was a fine album, so I’ll be watching out for Made In The Dark.
