Await Barbarians, the second solo LP from multi-instrumentalist Alexis Taylor, arrives on the back of a wandering chord. Taylor isn’t in a rush to correct the harmonic dissonance; he simply allows the relationship to find its own route through lyric-less opener “Lazy Bones.” This type of aural discomfort plays out across the album’s 12 tracks; from the industrial stutter that lines the innocent bliss of “From the Halfway Line” to the muted hi-hats/staccato bass pairing that pulses through the synths of “Immune System” and analog fuzz in the background of “Dolly and Porter,” there is always a new distraction to pull the listener back into his pitchy serenades.

As a vital member of UK’s dance-pop collective Hot Chip, Taylor has already established a firm base of colorful indie club kids (some now turned adults) over the last decade. For all the energetic spontaneity with Hot Chip favorites like “Over and Over” and “Ready for the Floor,” this collection of songs treats fans to an equal amount of thoughtful reflection. “Piano Ducks” and the seemingly Darth Vader-featuring “New Hours” are so beautifully barren that they seemingly escaped from Taylor’s core of artistic whimsy in a single take.
