Album Review

After two albums of increasingly big indie rock, the Airborne Toxic Event take a little time to wander with their third album, Such Hot Blood. Working this time with producer Jacquire King, who has worked with artists like Dawes, Of Monsters and Men, and Tom Waits, the band makes full use of his versatility, stepping away from the rhapsodic, Arcade Fire-inflected rock of its previous albums to try something a little smaller and more personal. On the country-inflected "Bride & Groom," it feels as if the band is going for something a little more earnestly...well...earnest, evoking emotion from listeners through the song's narrative rather than strapping them to a rocket of strings and synths and shooting for the stars. The problem is, shooting for the stars is really where the Airborne Toxic Event are at their best, so while songs like "Timeless" and "The Fifth Day" might feel like they are treading on old ground, it's when they have the time and space to really stretch out that they're able to get up to full speed.

Customer Reviews


this album is just as beautiful as the rest! if youre a long time TATE fan you wont be let down by this album!


Of course it's different. And I honestly love it.


The Airborne Toxic Event has done it again… This record is so gorgeous, start to finish. I love that iTunes gives you a discount if you purchased their EP, "The Secret". Very good deal, iTunes! I love this album because it's your classic sound of Airborne, but with a little bit more happiness to it. I always thought they were classified as that distinct sound of creating slightly depressing, yet awesome alternative rock, but now that I've listened to "Such Hot Blood", I know that they can truly accomplish anything. What a fantastic album. Thank you so much for gracing my ears, and it was a complete pleasure watching you perform at Coachella last week. Goodnight.

Formed by novelist Mikel Jollett during a tumultuous period in his life, the Airborne Toxic Event (named after a section in American author Don DeLillo's novel White Noise) combine literate indie rock with real literary cred. Formed in 2006, the group initially took shape as a Los Angeles-based duo, with Jollett and drummer Daren Taylor serving as the only members. A roster expansion was eventually needed; as a result, classically trained violinist Anna Bulbrook was brought in to play viola and keyboards,...
