“Nothing is Wasted”

Songs, Videos Comments Off on “Nothing is Wasted”

Dear Hot Chip,

I love you, you crazy crazy bastards. The video for your new single is stunning. Easily one of the best I’ve seen in years. It’s a work of surreal, sardonic genius. If this doesn’t go down as one of the greatest videos of all time, then it will serve as a reflection of something deeply and terribly broken in both the music industry and in music culture.

Love,
Aaron

“We are ready, we are ready for the floor”

I’ve been meaning to post this for awhile, but here’s an awesome video of British DJ and electropop artist Little Boots, covering Hot Chip’s “Ready for the Floor”.

That funky little box of awesome she’s playing is called a Tenori-on, and I have to say, I want one with a fierceness.  Apparently, in addition to being a stand-alone instrument, it can be used as a midi controller, which is kind of cool.
