What is a Hot Chip?!



Hopefully, this group needs no introduction, but I will give some background info for the un-informed.

Hot Chip is a 5-man electronic music group from London that is signed to DFA / EMI records and distributed in the US by Astralwerks.

Their new album, 'Made in the Dark' is a must buy, and contains 14 smokin' tracks including: "Shake A Fist", "Ready for the Floor" and "One Pure Thought".

Here is the video for "Ready for the Floor" which was the first single from the new album:
