Hot Chip... Will Break Your Legs, Snap Off Your Head. Uh.

Yayoi Kusama - Fear of Dots (2004)

Hot Chip is a simple recipe of fresh, unenthused lyrics dipped in tickling lappop beats. The experience is a hipster fondue party with your choice of electronic bleeps, strategically placed onomatopeias, and carefully cubed ironic lyrics... spread on a platter of danceability with a garnish of pretentious apathy. It's where Interpol goofs around, The Go Team! stops for an afternoon makeover, and Aphex Twin passes out after a long set. They're one of my favourite new bands and if you haven't yet checked them out, you're in for a treat.

Hot Chip - The Warning (mp3)

The new album
The Warning comes out at the end of May.
Pre-order information is available on their website.

Blogoholic's Fix of the Day:
Badmiton Stamps is a manic tastemaker set in the rolling-hilled hybrid of Philly-NYC. If you're in the area, checkout their showcase featuring The Sun, The Harlem Shakes, and the Picture (downloads available through the aforementioned showcase link). Rock on.


Yayoi Kusama herself.

the new imogen remix is........just not good. The background completely overshadows her intention and expression, not to mention artistic genius. As Griff would say, "if it aint broke ......"

catholics as a collective group can listen to music during lent, yes. i gave it up for lent, however, so i've been wallowing in silence for the last couple of weeks. life pretty much blows.
