Editors’ Notes

Future Breeds marks Hot Hot Heat's return to the realm of independently run music labels (in this case, Dangerbird Records). So for the first time in awhile, the band was free to write songs instead of calculated radio hits, though you might not realize that after listening to the quirky and contagious “Times a Thousand.” That track is awesome enough for radio airplay but weird enough to satiate those more ardent fans who've been following the band since its 2002 EP for Sub Pop, Knock Knock Knock. “Implosionatic” is just as (if not more) catchy, eschewing post-punk tomfoolery for straight-up song hooks bursting from a fast and punchy guitar-pop number with distorted synthesizers. The keyboards get even dirtier-sounding on “JFK’s LSD,” accompanying the disco-punk beats and high-on-the-neck bass runs associated with the skinny-tie and white-belted second coming of Britpop. The band makes free jazz–inspired interludes work well on “Zero Results,” while robotic angularity of Devo proportions helps make “Yvr” one heck of a standout opening cut.

Customer Reviews

It's weird...and I dig it!

Yo! Dudes! It's super dangerous to drop acid once you reach 30! Honestly I don't know what kind of Scooby snacks they were taking while making this but it worked out. This is the strangest album HHH ever made. It's also the BEST thing they ever made. The song Future Breeds is AWESOME. This album is to Hot Hot Heat as Ghost in the Machine is to The Police.

Hot Hot Heat, ftw!

This is a great album. I remember when Hot Hot Heat first came out. I thought their music back then was pretty good. Nononono! This album is waaaay better. They still have the same sound, while maintaing that rock beat. It's just exactly what I like. ^^

Sounds of the summer!

They invent themselves again and again with each album.... Future Breeds is a new take on techno pop, and works perfectly with Steves voice...... Each and every song makes me wanna get up and dance! Job well done boys!

Beginning as a noisy, synth-based combo in 1999, Victoria, British Colombia's Hot Hot Heat evolved into an aggressively catchy indie rock band two years later, when keyboardist Steve Bays took on the vocal duties, and guitarist Dante DeCaro joined their ranks. The group's new lineup — which also featured founding members Paul Hawley on drums and Dustin Hawthorne on bass — brought a newfound sense of melody and witty wordplay to their music, which they debuted on their 2002 EP Knock Knock...
