este es el primer disco que me ha gustado sobre manera en el 2008.
Hot Chip han sabido combinar perfectamente la electrónica, con ritmos bailables, con sonidos huecos y profundos.
Hot Chip es una banda británica de electropop. Tiene 3 álbumes en el mercado.
La banda se formó en el año 2000 a raíz de varios trabajos realizados previamente entre 2 de sus miembros, Alexis Taylor y Joe Goddard. Tras autoeditarse varios álbumes, firmaron en 2003 con la discográfica inglesa "Moshi Moshi", con la que sacarían su primer álbum, de nombre Coming on strong, en 2004. James Murphy, líder de LCD Soundsystem, se interesaría en ellos y los contrató para su discográfica DFA en Estados Unidos.
Un año después firmarían con la discográfica EMI para Reino Unido y su segundo álbum, The warning, ganaría bastante más repercusión. Su single "Over and over" sería considerado como "canción del año 2006" por la revista musical británica NME . Su último álbum, Made in the dark, salió a la venta el 4 de febrero de 2008 y su primer single "Ready for the floor" alcanzó buenas posiciones en el UK singles chart.
El grupo también destaca por sus actuaciones en vivo y sus remixes de otros temas. En España el grupo ha actuado en festivales como el Sónar o el FIB.
"Hot Chip formed in 2000, though members Alexis Taylor and Joe Goddard had previously worked together and had been in the same sixth form at Elliott School in Putney, London. In an interview, Goddard said that early Hot Chip music was written like sixth-form poetry, with acoustic guitars. However, the band completely changed direction because they got "so pissed off with it" and decided to try and make the most inane songs they could.
After years of self-releasing records, they signed with Moshi Moshi in 2003 and released their debut LP Coming on Strong in 2004. Soon after this they started working on their second album and signed a US record deal with the DFA Records who re-released their debut album in late 2005.
In 2006 Hot Chip released their second album, The Warning. Now signed to EMI in the UK, the band gained much more mainstream appeal as well as the attention of critics. The album was shortlisted for the 2006 Mercury Music Prize and was Mixmag's Album of the Year 2006. This album spawned also two UK top forty singles: "Over and Over" in March 2006 and "And I Was a Boy from School" in May 2006. "Over and Over" received attention for its music video, which was directed by Nima Nourizadeh, and was also named as the best single of 2006 by British music magazine NME.
The band is also well-known for their live shows, because they often reinvent their songs on stage, creating a completely different sound to what might be the official version. Recent festival appearances include Dour Festival, Glastonbury, Sónar, Benicassim, Electric Picnic, Bestival, Lovebox, the Reading and Leeds Festivals, the Summer Sundae festival, the Big Day Out T in the Park , Summer Sundae and Splendour In The Grass (2007). They released a DJ-Kicks compilation in 2007, which included a new song called "My Piano", also released as a 12".
The band are also known for their DJ talent; all five members took part in a DJ set live on BBC Radio One's The Essential Mix radio program, hosted by Pete Tong, on December 29, 2007.
The band released their third studio album, Made in the Dark, on February 4 2008. The first release out of it was "Shake a Fist" which was released as a limited one-sided 12" in September 2007. The first proper single was "Ready For The Floor" in January 2008, which reached number 6 in the UK Singles Chart.
In January 2008 the band appeared on Friday Night with Jonathan Ross to promote "Ready For The Floor". Joe Goddard appeared on Never Mind The Buzzcocks on Thursday 31st January."
