Hot Chip

I’ll take new music from Hot Chip in any way I can get it. They have recorded a cover of William Onyeabor’s “Atomic Bomb” for a compilation of bands covering/remixing William Onyeabor tracks called WHAT?!: William Onyeabor Remixed. The compilation is a Record Store Day exclusive that David Byrne’s label Luaka Bop is releasing.

The cover is right in Hot Chip’s wheelhouse. Enjoy it below.

Hot Chip @ Lollapalooza (8/2/2013)

Hot Chip
never cease to amaze. Every time I see them seems to be better and better than the last. They’ve found a niche that lays in between the best worlds of dance-rock and electronica with a funky soul groove.

Call it what you want, because at the end of the day, they will leave you dancing and having a blast, while also sounded technically brilliant. Last year they stole the show at the Pitchfork Music Festival, and this year they were arguably the best show I saw on Friday. Hot Chip are a band you don’t want to miss live, they just know how to bring it. It was cool to hear new single “Dark & Stormy”, which is truly one of the better songs we’ve heard this year.

[new]: Hot Chip – Dark & Stormy

By Will Oliver, June 4th 2013 — with 1 comment


Hot Chip are back with a new single titled “Dark & Stormy.” Somehow the band always seem to find a way to release something new, always keeping busy. The single is a one off release for Domino that will come out on July 23. The b-side is a new version of “Look At Where We Are.”

“Dark & Stormy” does indeed feature a darker vibe from the Brits than normal, with their nerd-funk  dance vibes very much intact still as well. It’s something that’s both romantic and danceable. Hot Chip are one of the more reliable groups in the game at this point, so none of this should come as much of a surprise.

Hot Chip @ Roseland Ballroom (April 9, 2013)

Hot Chip seem to have grown as a band exponentially every time that I see them. Not even in terms of their band member count – which has definitely grown – but in scope. The crowds and venues just keep getting bigger and bigger. This makes sense, Hot Chip have a sound that attracts all kinds of music fans. They can just as easily bring down the house with huge dance vibes as they can rock out. They even have an emotional core that can devastate you just as equally. There’s not much that Hot Chip can’t do.

During the front end of the show they dominated us with an incredible consecutive run of songs (“One Life Stand” -> “Night & Day” -> “Flutes” -> “Over and Over”) that was simply ridiculous.

They finished off with “Shake A Fist”, “Boy From School” and “Ready For The Floor” which had the place going, and carried them to the encore. I didn’t know what else they had left after giving us so many goodies in the early stage of the set, but they finished off with a four song encore that included huge performances of “I Feel Better” and “Let Me Be Him.” It was magical.

I’ll admit to being somewhat skeptical that Hot Chip would fill in the rather large space of Roseland. But they did it, and they did it quite well.

Hot Chip @ Pitchfork Music Festival (July 14, 2012)

Each time that I’ve seen Hot Chip has been a blast. Yet their set this weekend took all of those shows and put it to shame, as they incredibly delivered arguably the best set of the entire weekend. The band have never sounded stronger to me. They were having fun on stage, yet delivering tight performances, making it look so easy in the process.

With so many golden tracks, it would be hard to pick just one highlight, but I’m going with an unexpected cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Everywhere” which they weaved into end of “Ready For The Floor”.

Hot Chip had me reeling in joy, and the entire crowd dancing and smiling, proving to me that unquestionable that they won both Saturday and the weekend as a whole.
