Hot Chip were in NYC for last weekend's Governors Ball and have just announced a headlining show here -- they'll play Webster Hall on August 4 with new Domino signing Georgia. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (6/19) at 10 AM with an artist presale starting Wednesday (6/17) at 10 AM.
Weird Al / Hot Chip / Flying Lotus / War on Drugs @ Governors Ball 6/7/2005
Weird Al came swinging right from the bell, brandishing his accordion and taking a polka tour through a number of recent top 40 hits. It was a good way to bait the crowd, likely expecting a set heavy on numbers from last year's smash, Mandatory Fun. The first of these was "Foil", set to the tune of Lorde's "Royals". Some of the props from its music video were wheeled out, plenty of aluminum foil included. The song's Illuminati-referencing second half may have been lost on a festival crowd, but that was quickly forgotten. Weird Al darted offstage as soon as the song finished, leaving the crowd hotly anticipating what Weird Al would bring next. The thing he brought was IT. And by "IT" I mean one of his most dearly loved classics, the Michael Jackson parody "Fat", complete with a fat suit that was a perfect replica of the one Weird Al sports in the song's music video. If festivalgoers were still warming up to the Weird Al festival phenomenon, they were fully in his hands by this point. Even the sound guy was singing along. - [Popmatters]Governors Ball finished up its 2015 festival on Sunday (6/7) with sets by The Black Keys, Tame Impala, Hot Chip, Flying Lotus, A-Track, The War on Drugs, Sturgill Simpson and more. But the most talked-about set may have been Weird Al who tore through hits and costume changes at a frenzied pace. Pictures from his set and the rest of day 3 are in this post.

British artist Georgia is a real multi-hyphenate, a multi-intrumentalist who played drums for Kate Tempest and Kwes, and who is also a producer, singer and MC on her own. She released her debut EP last year and has since signed to Domino who will release her self-titled debut album on August 7. Her first single for the label, "Move Systems," came out earlier this year and is a good example of her approach (which is also multi-hyphenate): futuristic, hooky and melodic and an MC style that's a little closer to MIA than Tempest if we're making comparisons. You can watch the video "Move Systems" and check out new track "Be Ache" and that 2014 EP, below.
Georgia will be in NYC the week her album's released to play two shows: August 3 at Elvis Guesthouse and August 6 at Baby's All Right. Tickets for both NYC shows go on sale Friday (6/5) at 10 AM. After that she'll be opening for labelmates Hot Chip on a string of UK dates, and all are listed below.
Hot Chip have already released "Need You Now," "Huarache Lights," and "Burning Up" from their upcoming album Why Make Sense (due 5/18 via Domino), and they've now launched a new website where you can head to stream the album's title track.

Hot Chip's new single from their forthcoming sixth album, Why Make Sense, is "Need You Now" which is a very solid house number with a hook sampled from the 1983 Sinnaman single "I Need You Now." For the song's video, the band turned to Shynola who are responsible for some memorable videos of the '00s, like Radiohead's "Pyramid Song," The Rapture'a "House of Jealous Lovers" and Junior Senior's "Move Your Feet"... the latter of which probably got them the job doing The IT Crowd's opening credits. For "Need You Now," they use subtle special effects to tell the story of a man (Hot Chip's Alexis Taylor) whose life seems to be in a constant loop. Literally. You can watch it below.
Hot Chip's Why Make Sense is out May 19 via Domino and, thanks to a "bespoke printing technique" every copy of the LP and CD will feature unique artwork. Pre-orders are available, including a deluxe LP version that comes with a bonus EP. Hot Chip will be in NYC next month for Governors Ball.

Last week Hot Chip teased a new album, and today they've officially announced it. It's called Why Make Sense?, will be out on May 18 via Domino, and first single "Huarache Lights" is out now. It continues the bold, fleshed-out pop direction Hot Chip took on their last two LPs, and it's easily as great at the highlights off those. ("Huarache Lights" is also the answer to "what the heck are they saying?" in that teaser website from last week.) Check out the video (shot by Andy Knowles) below.
The album was co-produced by Mark Ralph, and pre-orders will come with a bonus EP, titled Separate, that features four outtakes from the new album's sessions.
We already knew they'd be playing Sasquatch! and Governors Ball, and as predicted, a full tour has now been announced surrounding those festivals. All dates are listed, with the new video and album tracklist, below...
Looks like Hot Chip are finally ready to follow 2012's great In Our Heads. The band posted a teaser with the words "Why Make Sense?" which appears to suggest that their sixth album will out on Domino this year.
The band have a few dates coming up, including two US festivals -- Washington's Sasquatch! in May and NYC's Governors Ball in June -- and it's likely that a tour is soon to come too. Hopefully we'll get the new album before then.
Hot Chip's Alexis Taylor will be in NYC sooner to DJ the MoMA Armory Party benefit with Ezra Koenig, Kelela and more.
All dates are listed, with a live video of In Our Heads opener "Motion Sickness," below...

Alt-R&B singer Kelela's last visit to NYC was unfortunately canceled but she'll be back next month to headline MoMA's annual benefit / preview party The Armory Show on March 4 at MoMA's Agnes Gund Garden Lobby. The pricey gala also features a two-hour DJ set from Hot Chip's Alexis Taylor, plus additional DJ sets from Vampire Weekend's Ezra Koenig, plus Business Class (aka Lawrence Abu Hamdan who is also the official commissioned artist for The Armonry Show) and E*vax (Ratatat). Tickets to the party are $175, but VIP and more expensive options (like the $10k Lead Benefactor tickets) get you an early peek at MoMA's Bjork retrospective which doesn't officially open till March 8.
Here's a little more on The Armory Show:

Hot Chip at Prospect Park in 2012 (more by Toby Tenenbaum)
Hot Chip's Joe Goddard was just in NYC last week, and this coming week members Felix Martin and Al Doyle will be here with their other band New Build. Their tour hits Mercury Lounge on 12/3 with tourmates Museum of Love (DFA, LCD Soundsystem) and 12/4 at Rough Trade with Future Punx and Orange Cassettes. Tickets for those shows are still available.
Just after those shows, there's a Hot Chip DJ set happening on December 6 at Good Room (fka Europa), which is a FIXED party and also includes FIXED regulars JDH & Dave P. Tickets are on sale now. Hot Chip have other DJ gigs too. All are listed below.
FIXED, who just celebrated their 10th anniversary (you can stream JDH & Dave P's mix in honor of that, below), also have other events coming up. They're doing a party on December 5 at Glasslands with Lemonade and a DJ set from Cut Copy (tickets). That's one of the venue's final shows.

Museum of Love
As mentioned, New Build (Al & Felix from Hot Chip's other band) are playing NYC in December -- 12/3 at Mercury Lounge and 12/4 at Rough Trade -- and tickets are still available. As it turns out, those are the first two dates of a short North American tour and all dates are below. The band's second album, Pour it On, is out this week and you can stream it in full, below.
Joining them on tour will be Museum of Love, the new band from LCD Soundsystem drummer Pat Mahoney (and old DFA cohort Dennis McNany). They're on the Mercury Lounge show but not the Rough Trade one, apparently. MoL have only played one proper NYC show -- DFA's "Summer Soiree" at The Wick -- but the live incarnation, which is a full band, seemed to have it together. I thought they were really good. If you haven't checked out the Museum of Love album yet, you can stream it via Rdio.
This could be an interesting tour, as both Al and Pat were in LCD's live incarnation (and Pat played drums for Hot Chip on at least one tour). Maybe there will be some cross-pollination at shows? We shall see.

The 2 Bears, which is Hot Chip's Joe Goddard and mate Raf Rundell, released their second album, The Night Is Young, earlier this year and it's more of their fun, '90s-style Eurodance (with some dancehall as well), pure party music. There's nothing quite as awesome as "Bear Hug" this time, but it's still worth giving a spin -- you can check out videos for singles "Not This Time" and "Money Man," plus snippets of the rest of the album, below.
Joe and Raf will be going on a DJ tour later this month, starting with a NYC date at Verboten on November 19. Curses and Pixelife will be on the decks as well and tickets are on sale now.
West Coast dates of the tour also feature a Hot Chip DJ set as well. Speaking of Hot Chip, Al and Felix will be in NYC with their other band, New Build, in December.
All 2 Bears DJ dates, plus videos and streams, below...
New Build, which features Al and Felix from Hot Chip, will release their second album, Pour it On, next week (11/11) via Sunday Best. It's a little proggier (and less whimsical) than their other group, but no less beat-oriented. You can stream a couple tracks and check out the video for "The Sunlight" below.
While no North American tour has been announced, New Build will be in NYC next month for a couple shows: Mercury Lounge on December 3 and Rough Trade on December 4. Tickets for both shows go on sale Wednesday (11/5) at noon.
All dates are listed, along with streams and video, below...
