It’s been a while since I’ve listened to them, largely because I don’t think there’s been much new stuff of theirs floating about. They are due a new album though, which is going to be released at some point this year. For now we’ve got a new song to listen to called ‘No Fit State’. It’s classic Hot Chip, with a four-on-the-floor beat, Alexis and Joe Goddard trading vocals and the synths sitting very nicely in the track thankyouplease.
Hot Chip – No Fit State
As well as finding time to make a new album, the guys from Hot Chip have been busy elsewhere. Joe Goddard has his project with Raf Rundell and their debut album Be Strong comes out on Monday on DFA. You can listed to it from start to finish on The Hype Machine at the moment though.
The 2 Bears – Work
Meanwhile, Al Doyle and Felix Martin have also got their own thing going on. Their band New Build have got a record coming out at the start of March on their own label. They’re also touring in March and you can get tickets and more info about that on their website. For now, listen to the album sampler below.
