Hot Chip are never a band to stand musically still. On their recent tour (promoting 2015’s ‘Why Make Sense?) the London 5-piece have been covering Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Dancing in the Dark’ for their encore – something which has proven to be as popular as the bands own impressive back catalogue.
However, last night (5th August 2015) at New York’s Webster Hall they played an extended cover version of LCD Soundsystem’s ‘All My Friends’, bringing out surprise guests Sinkane and LCD Soundsystem’s own Nancy Whang for the performance. Hot Chip have long had a connection to LCD Soundsystem, with members Al Doyle serving in both bands.
You can see the full video of the performance, above.
