Video: Hot Chip “I Feel Better”

UPDATE: Apparently this video now has embedding blocked, you can watch it in HD on YouTube here.

This is easily the best music video I have seen in a long, long time.

“I Feel Better” is off the excellent new Hot Chip album One Life Stand. Some other great tracks from the album are “Take It In,” which I previously shared here, “One Life Stand” and “Thieves in the Night.”

Hot Chip “Take It In”

hot-chip-pencil-drawing

UK electro-pop/rockers Hot Chip have a new album, One Life Stand, coming out this February.  Their second and third albums, 2006’s The Warning and last year’s Made in the Dark, are among my favorite dance albums ever made, and produced three of the finest singles of the decade, “Over and Over,” “Ready for the Floor,” and my personal favorite, “A Boy From School,” so needless to say, I’m more than a little excited about this new album.  It can be pre-ordered now from their website (http://www.hotchip.co.uk/) and its first official single, the title track “One Life Stand,” is now available on iTunes.  It’s a good song, but my favorite new track I’ve heard is “Take It In,” which came as a free download with a pre-order of the album, and is also widely available on mp3 blogs across the web.  Give it a listen below.
