Hot Chip is easily one of my top favorite bands of the last decade. My wife and I got to see them in concert a couple of years ago at Coachella (and will again this year, as they were just officially announced as part of the 2010 line-up). So I was obviously excited when I heard that they had a new CD coming out.
“One Life Stand” is the first video and the title track from their CD of the same name, which is being released on February 8th. This is one of those cases where the music video isn’t necessarily “amazing” but the song definitely is. As with most of Hot Chip’s catalog, this will get stuck in your head after just a listen or two. The CD actually features a longer version of the track, making this the “single edit,” but both versions are great in their own right.
