[Listen] Joe Goddard & Boris Dlugosch – "Step Together"

It seems like Joe Goddard is always busy, dipping his hands into numerous musical ventures including his mainstay Hot Chip to The 2 Bears to remixes and solo projects. Today, he released a brand new solo EP titled Taking Over, and it's pretty damn good. Before you dive in a grab it, we thought it would be best to introduce you with two of its four songs.

The first is "Step Together," which Goddard worked on with German producer Boris Dlugosch. It's a bouncy house track fitted with slick piano chords and Goddard's smooth vocal delivery. The second is "She Burns." It features the vocals of Mara Carlyle, focusing on her echoing tones while hi-hats and spaced-out synthesizers shimmer in the background. Stream the former below, while the latter is accompanied by some grim, funerary visuals.

The Taking Over EP is available to purchase now on iTunes and other avenues.

[Listen] Hot Chip - "Dark & Stormy"

Hot Chip get dark and stormy with a new cut premiered on Zane Lowe's BBC Radio 1 programme. The official audio of "Dark & Stormy" has made its way online, and it is so, so good. It's always a great day when there's new Hot Chip, and this new cut is a tight, dance-ready jam. Unfortunately, it'll just be released as a lone single, so no new album or anything like that. Still, can't complain with new music.

[Listen] Foals - "My Number" (Hot Chip Remix)

Hot Chip ups the ante on Foals' dancey single "My Number", adding flourishing, sun-tinged synthesizers and a pulsating 4/4 beat to a dancefloor-ready remix. Acid house influences seep through every second of the three-minute remix, but the highlight is the pacing, which slows it down when appropriate but never fully kills the quick tempo and bouncing rhythms. Stream it below.

Foals new album Holy Fire is out now.

[Watch] Hot Chip - "Don't Deny Your Heart" (Official Video)

Hot Chip have once again enrolled the talents of Peter Serafinowicz who's worked with he band on numerous projects in the past not to mention some hilarious sketch shows of his own, for their new video to "Don't Deny Your Heart". The video sees the boys playing on some FIFA like game on the tour bus and it's damn funny watching. It even involves a weird dance off featuring a hundred golden men too. It's a lot to take it. Check it out at the top of the page and be sure to pick up In Our Heads which is out now.

[Listen] Hot Chip - "Look At Where We Are" (Four Tet Remix)

Following up the Major Lazer remix we heard last month, Hot Chip's track "Look At Where We Are" has been given the remix treatment again, this time by none other than Four Tet. The remix can be heard below and it's a pretty chilled out mix that's perfect for a mid-morning mid-week listen.

If you missed it last week go check out their retro looking green screen video for "How Do You Do" over here.

Hot Chip's new album, In Our Heads, is out now.

[Watch] Hot Chip - "How Do You Do?" (Official Video)

Last week we saw Hot Chip perform on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon with a little help from The Roots. Fast forward a week and we're watching their throwback visual for their new single, "How Do You Do?", which features on their newly released album, In Our Heads. By this point we kind of expect a wacky looking visual when they're released and this is no different. The Rollo Jackson directed video has a 90's feel throughout and features some (spoiler!) seamless green screen work. Kind of makes me want to go to the beach too. Watch it above.
