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 transition did seem a tad wonky — until he’s comforted by a smiling Al Doyle. Way to stand by your whole man, Al.
One Life Stand is out 2/9 via Astralwerks. One of the NYC shows Fallon mentions at the end happens tonight (2/5) at the Highline Balroom with Free Energy. It’s one of those “secret” MySpace shows. It’s all ages. Doors at 7PM. First come, first served. More info at MySpace. The other NY date’s tomorrow (2/6) at the Music Hall Of Williamsburg.
