Hot Chip – “Flutes” Video

In the video for Hot Chip's "Flutes," the leadoff track from their forthcoming album In Our Heads, a handheld camera walks into the band's studio and then spins around a whole lot of times. We also get brief still glimpses of the group at work. If you're, let's say, a bit hungover, it's probably… More »

The 10 Best Videos Of The Week

This week's clips from Arcade Fire, Rokysopp, Simian Mobile Disco, No Joy, and White Lies show off what's possible when your videos don't have to fit particular television formats and time limits. The suburban dystopias in Rokysopp's and Arcade Fire's extended videos are a little long and a little much for TV, especially with the… More »

Bernard Sumner, Hot Chip, & Hot City – “Didn’t Know What Love Was” Video

When Bethany Cosentino, Kid Cudi, and Rostam Batmanglij made a video for their Converse-funded "All Summer" they opted to don over-sized versions of their own heads and move into a "warm apartment." Despite featuring two "Hot" bands, things are icier (and pleasingly stranger) in the Andreas Nilsson-directed video for Bernhard Sumner, Hot Chip,… More »

Hot Chip (Feat. Will Oldham) – “I Feel Bonnie” Video

"I Feel Bonnie" is Hot Chip and Will Oldham's remake of One Life Stand's "I Feel Better." This video traces the evolution of the punchline. Fewer explosions than the original's video, but just as hunky. More »

Kisses – “Kisses (Joe Goddard of Hot Chip Remix)

Kisses are in the UK right now supporting their just-released debut album. But they'll be in New York for CMJ, where they're playing eight shows over five days. Their self-titled single, "Kisses" is also out in the UK, with a b-side remix by Hot Chip's Joe Goddard. The original is a breezy, but emotionally distant… More »

Bernard Sumner, Hot Chip & Hot City – “Didn’t Know What Love Was”

This track features Bernard Sumner of Bad Lieutenant, New Order, and Joy Division, Alexis Taylor and Joe Goddard from Hot Chip, and Hot City. The Best Coast / Rostam / Kid Cudi collaboration "All Summer" had trouble meshing together the styles of the participants while allowing them to keep their personalities. This one i… More »

Hot Chip – “Brothers (Caribou Remix)” (Stereogum Premiere)

Hot Chip have a remix EP on the way, to be released a little before their next series of dates opening for LCD Soundsystem (including a show at Hollywood Bowl with both LCD and Sleigh Bells). Caribou's Dan Snaith does this brooding, brainy remix of "Brothers," isolating singer Alexis Taylor's delicate vocal, sampling and repeating… More »

Lollapalooza 2010 Friday: Lady Gaga And The Strokes, So Far Away Yet … Yeah, So Far Away

As much as Lolla's undercard is varied, and vast, it's a headliner's ball this year. Because this deep into the festival season we've seen nearly all of these bands plenty, and because Lolla has created some discourse-owning 8PM show-downs. Night one's was a study in contrasts: Lady Gaga, or the Strokes? We caught both, two… More »

Coachella 2010: Die Antwoord, Major Lazer, Flying Lotus

On Friday, James Murphy dedicated "Losing My Edge" to Gil Scott-Heron. For the rest of the weekend, everyone should be covering "Communication Breakdown" and dedicating it to AT&T. Not being able to meet up with your friends because of long delayed texts does cultivate a certain independent spirit, though, and partying with strangers wasn't… More »

Hot Chip – “She Wolf” (Shakira Cover)

Hot Chip visited the Jo Whiley' show on BBC Radio 1 on Saturday to do a live-in-the-studio version of "I Feel Better" and a cover of Shakira's "She Wolf." The "She Wolf" single was a step in an electro/disco direction for Shakira, so the Hot Chip cover feels pretty natural, except for Alexi… More »

Hot Chip – “I Feel Better” Video

Hot Chip made some of my favorite videos of the last decade, because they've got great taste in directors and they do both conceptual and humorous really well. And when your singer's voice is as fragile and tender as Alexis Taylor's, the humor stops everything from getting too precious. "I Feel Better," directed by… More »

Hot Chip Have A “One Life Stand” With Fallon

Instead of the Depeche moodier "Take It In," Hot Chip offered the wistful come on of their One Life Stand title track on Fallon last night. They got some assistance with the airy hooks from the Roots, but sadly zero circle dancing. Afterward Alexis Taylor looks a bit bummed -- the final… More »

Grizzly Bear Cover Hot Chip

Australia's Triple J has a good thing going with the segment it's dubbed Like A Version, semi-regularly coaxing artists to record an exclusive cover for broadcast. One day less than a year ago, we posted up the session in which Bon Iver covered Feist's "The Park." Today it's Grizzly Bear, who've been on tour… More »

New Hot Chip – “I Feel Better”

The tender-hearted UK dance nerds of Hot Chip have their One Life Stand in stores in a few weeks, the roll call so far: "Take It In" and the title track, alongside the bonus aside of a reworking by Detroit beat maven Carl Craig. "I Feel Better" is up next, it's Madonna'… More »

Carl Craig Remixes Hot Chip

Detroit techno producer/DJ/biggie Carl Craig stretches One Life Stand's mild-mannered title track to 10 thumping minutes of slow-build dance-ready darkness. Get the weekend started with the "One Life Stand" (Carl Craig PCP Remix)." But don't do drugs. More »
