    Hot Chip's Alexis Taylor will release his second solo album and first for Domino Records, titled Await Barbarians, on June 10.

    There is a special intimacy to the lyrics of Alexis Taylor's Await Barbarians, a simplicity and candor in his expression of emotion, though the moments of honesty are matched with a sense of humor, playfulness and fun.

    Playing and recording all the instruments himself apart from strings, Taylor also presents a more reflective side of his writing and singing, which comes into focus in a more confident and defined manner than before.

    Want to hear it for yourself? Check out the track "Elvis Has Left the Building."
