Hot Little Rocket How To Lose Everything

Hot Little Rocket How To Lose Everything

Since releasing their first album, Laika, in 2000, Calgary post-punk heroes Hot Little Rocket have opened for the likes of Modest Mouse and Eric’s Trip, while international endeavours gained them a two-week residency in Beijing, China, where they played at festivals, bars and even the Canadian Consulate. Adding to the legend, their latest full-length, How To Lose Everything, was recorded in Chicago with indie demigod Steve Albini. Albini’s production lends an epic energy to the songs, allowing for denser guitars and epic walls of drums to support Andrew Wedderburn’s vocals. From the infectious build of "Like Killers” to the clicking rhythm of "Sleep Today,” Hot Little Rocket have created an album worthy of its big name producer. (File Under)
