KEXP Suggests… Hot Chip!

Let’s step away from the drive for a few minutes and take a look at the new Hot Chip record, The Warning!

“This London band downplays the quirky cheekiness of their debut album in favor of more warmth and emotion on this excellent follow-up. While there’s still plenty of tongue-in-cheek humor, they dig deeper here both lyrically and musically, balancing irony with deep poignancy and working a variety of musical ideas into their adventurous electro-pop, which references Prince, DFA, New Order and more without directly aping anyone.” – Don Yates

You can stream The Warning at Hot Chip’s website and watch a video for the single…

Over and Over – (WMV, Real)

They’re only doing a handful of shows in the U.S. this summer, but you can catch Hot Chip in San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, Milwaukee, and at Lallapalooza in Chicago on August 6.

    Unless I’m an idiot and couldn’t find the full stream, it looks like you can only listen to snipets of their new album (a la iTunes) on their website. But you CAN stream the whole thing over at the AOL Listening Party, completely free:
