Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor gives us his “Top Ten Homeless Thanksgiving San Francisco Tracks” (listen)

alexis-taylor

We’ve been asking musicians and comedians for Top 10s of 2016 — maybe you’ve seen Frank Turner‘s or Hinds or Jonah Ray‘s. Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor, who released the lovely solo album Piano this year, sent us a list that’s a little bit different. He spent Thanksgiving in San Francisco, and this very American holiday can be a bit weird for foreigners, and he opted for walking around the city instead of a turkey dinner. Says Alexis, “This is the music I listened to whilst walking around San Fransisco on Thanksgiving, the music I heard in my head, and also some of the tunes various people were listening to on the streets that I ‘Shazammed’.”

Check out Alexis Taylor’s “Top Ten Homeless Thanksgiving San Francisco Tracks” with streams where possible (plus a stream of his Piano LP) below.

Meanwhile, Alexis’ Hot Chip bandmate, Joe Goddard, released a new solo single today.
