The Top 30 Electronic Dance Tracks Of 2012

There was no getting away from EDM in 2012. While the three-letter hashtag has certainly caused buzz among radio stations and indie blogosphere alike, it's been a big year for dance on and off of the pop charts. Regional styles like footwork, juke, and Jersey club went through genre-bending booms, electronic trap instrumentals filtered their… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

I didn't write one of these lists last week because it was the day after Thanksgiving and that is simply not the type of thing that you do on the day after Thanksgiving. (What you do on the day after Thanksgiving, if you're me, is wash so many dishes.) That means we have two weeks'… More »

Hot Chip – “Don’t Deny Your Heart” Video

The central conflict of Hot Chip's video "Don't Deny Your Heart" involves a good old-fashioned tour bus FIFA rivalry, though this particular match goes to a place where I've never seen a FIFA match go (did they download a special patch?). Peter Serafinowicz directs. Watch it below. More »

Jessie Ware – “Night Light (Joe Goddard Remix)”

Hot Chip's Joe Goddard instills a new groove to Jessie Ware's "Night Light," which definitely reimagines the track through the lens of Hot Chip-esque disco throb. Hear it below. More »

Watch Hot Chip Play Kimmel

Last night, Hot Chip, eerily locked in as always, served as Jimmy Kimmel Live!'s musical guests. They played their slinky, heartfelt disco anthem "How Do You Do?," switching instruments mid-song and generally coming off like bosses. Watch the performance below. More »

Hot Chip, Passion Pit, Omar Souleyman @ Hollywood Bowl, Hollywood 9/9/12

It was a picture perfect evening at the Hollywood Bowl for the KCRW World Music Festival series as the trio of Hot Chip, Passion Pit, and Omar Souleyman filled the night with chirpy synthesizers and pulsating beats. Hot Chip are no strangers to rocking the Hollywood Bowl while Passion Pit showed why they had… More »

Hot Chip – “How Do You Do (Todd Terje Remix)”

Hot Chip's breezy disco jam "How Do You Do" is one of the purest moments of pleasure on their new album In Our Heads. And now they've stretched that moment out into infinity, recruiting Scandinavian space-disco master Todd Terje to give the song a dizzy dance odyssey of a remix. The Terje remix last… More »

Hot Chip – “Look At Where We Are (Four Tet Remix)”

A couple of weeks ago, we posted Major Lazer's fiery EDM-reggae remix of Hot Chip's lovely synthpop lament "Look At Where We Are." Now Four Tet has remixed it too, taking the song in the exact opposite direction and turning it into a spare and haunted eight-minute love-koan that gets busier as it… More »

Hot Chip – “How Do You Do?” Video

Hot Chip's new video for "How Do You Do?," a jittery roller-disco jam from their new album In Our Heads, is pretty much fun with green-screen and light-filters. It shows the band, along with various unrelated scenery, transposed against non-sequitur backgrounds and glowing all sorts of different colors. Rollo Jackson directs, and the song,… More »

Watch Hot Chip Perform With ?uestlove On Fallon

More than two years ago, Hot Chip came through Late Night With Jimmy Fallon to perform "One Life Stand" with the Roots. We've gotten a little more used to these impromptu Roots collabs on the show since then, but it's still just as awesome to see Hot Chip returning to the show and ?uestlove… More »

Hot Chip – “Look At Where We Are” Video

We heard the Major Lazer remix yesterday, and now Hot Chip's elegant synthpop elegy "Look At Where We Are" has a music video from Animal Collective visual collaborator Danny Perez. In the ambiguous, hallucinatory clip, a mad scientist experiments on a supermodel's soul, or something. It's not exactly the most linear narrative you'll… More »

Hot Chip – “Look At Where We Are” (Major Lazer Remix)

On their remix of Hot Chip's "Look At Where We Are," Major Lazer take the sensitive, starry-eyed synthpop of the original and inject it with both lilting summertime one-drop reggae and cheesed-out populist bass-fuzz EDM, which is quite a trick. Your mileage may vary, but I'd say the song comes out all the better… More »

Hot Chip – “Night And Day” Video

The first music video that British comedian Pe­ter Ser­afi­now­icz ever directed was the amazing, hallucinatory one for Hot Chip's "I Feel Better." And now the director and band have teamed up once again, making a similarly batshit clip for Hot Chip's new single "Night And Day." It would be an act of… More »

Check Out Animal Collective, Hot Chip In The Simpsons

Somebody must have a new music supervisor! Last night's episode of The Simpsons didn't feature guest voice-acting from any big indie celebs or anything, but it did open and close with montages set to a couple of songs that may sound familiar. In the opening montage, we hear Hot Chip's "Boy From School," while the… More »

Hot Chip – “Night And Day”

About a month after putting out "Flutes," Hot Chip just dropped their new single, "Night And Day," and it's another slab of their blippy disco. "Do I look like a rapper?" Alexis Taylor chants. Uh, maybe Despot? Hear it at their Soundcloud page. The single's out 6/4 on Domino. The new… More »
