Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). Onto a quick album overview. I'm not usually interested in lyrics much (I find them a nice supplement to exceptional musicianship, but can hardly listen to a band that's heavy on the lyrics/vocals and light on musicianship) well since I can remember. Rarely do lyrics grab me on the first or second listen through, but the cleverness and delivery on Mind Chaos grabbed me almost instantly (well, within about 30 seconds of "Too Fake").

Mind Chaos, Hockey’s debut album which drops September 28th, is their first effort to capture this sound. Hockey attempts to reach into jazz, hip hop, rap, rock, dance and mash them together with influences like Bob Dylan and Queen and you get a play-doh concoction called Mind Chaos. Heading the album off, Too Fake, set the stage as not only the album beginning but the band’s single. Electronic atmosphere and a heavy bass groove introduce the band and give us a feeling for the first half of the album. Ben’s voice slips right in with his freeform vocals casually laying over the beat.
Hockey singer Benjamin Grubin’s slippery way with a fast lyric is one of the most appealing aspects of his band’s debut album. During 3am Spanish, a snappy new wave relative of The Rolling Stones’ Miss You, Grubin coolly intones: I got the money, but the money got m. made the money but the money made me. Later, on Song Away, there’s an equally cool couplet: See what man has done to the world, see what the world has done to your man. These snippets epitomise the appeal of Mind Chaos succinctly.
Hockey's debut, Mind Chaos, was initially going to be released by Sony Records - the band even got as far as reworking some of its demos in the studio with producer Jerry Harrison - but the album's fate was left in limbo when the label dropped the band. Mind Chaos - Fairly Good, Based on 7 Critics. 70. Hockey's debut, Mind Chaos, was initially going to be released by Sony Records - the band even got as far as reworking some of its demos in the studio with producer Jerry Harrison - but the album's fate was left in limbo when the label dropped the band. Mind Chaos got a new lease on life when Hockey's songs made their way to BBC Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe, whose championing of the strutting "Learn to Lose" helped earned the band another major-label deal. For most of the album, they don't stray far from this style, and considering that they had been around for a while before Mind Chaos's 2009 release, they sound effective, but not especially fresh. Most of the band's character resides in Ben Grubin's raspy vocals, which lie somewhere between a young Rod Stewart and the Strokes' Julian Casablancas, and his surprisingly smart lyrics.
