One life band

I feel like we’re a little late with this tune. I’ve had it for a few weeks now and wanted to get it up straight away, but just haven’t been able to find the time. So for those of you who haven’t yet heard it, feast your ears. And if you have already heard it, well – you can still feast your ears because it’s amazing!

So – the mighty Hot Chip are due to release their new album ‘One Life Stand’ in February. Happy days. They’ve also announced a tour to co-incide with it (see below for details). You can bet your bottom dollar we shall be in attendance when they play in London!

As for their first single – I absolutely LOVE it. It’s been on repeat on my iPod now for weeks. So much so that I’ve even felt the need to tell people about how good it is or how much I like it – even when I know that they’re not gonna interested. (I actually did that exact thing a few nights ago in a cab and was greeted by a bunch of expressionless faces in a ‘you’ve just killed the conversation with that irrelevant comment’ kinda way). Listen and love.

  1. It’s a difficult issue. I understand both sides of the debate because of how fairly you have presented them here. I look forward to your updates on the subject.

  2. I love spam comments…

    Touch my paint up.

    Albums out Monday 1st and it’s a smasher.

    I saw Alexis DJ last weekend and he played a stormer of a remix, wish I’d asked him who by. That’s one for a WANARB post of the future…
