Hockey OK


MIND Chaos, the new album by Hockey, is a jolly old affair.
The Oregan-based group's pop shtick is a cross between the pummelling rock of The Strokes and the witty electro disco of LCD Soundsystem, best demonstrated with the glorious opener Too Fake.
There are plenty of diversions from this though, with self-proclaimed '80s grooves, Bob Dylan impressions and sparse funk rock segments a-plenty - although these tend to see a dip in quality too.
It's not a cerebral listen, and the erratic nature of the LP stunts the flow a little, but if you like mainstream rock, and you don't mind chaos, try Mind Chaos.
