For many years now, Hot Chip have been one of the most dependably great bands on the whole big-clubs-and-festivals touring circuit. Any chance to see them do what they do onstage is a chance you should take. Case in point: Last night, they were musical guests on Conan, and their particular brand of smoothed-out gawkiness translated just fine to American cable television. The band played “Started Right,” an album track from their new Why Make Sense?, and they sounded great. Watch the performance below.
Why Make Sense? is out now on Domino.
