Like the idea of an impala singing about an elephant. Nice stomper with occasional tricksy grooves thrown in from the upcoming new album on Modular. Another psychy track w no video here

Promo Promo: Hot Chip - Night & Day

"Many animals were harmed during the making of this video. Regrettably, none of them made the final edit." Peter @Serafinowicz, director. Can't concur with the "Zapp not Zappa" line, but good to see Terence Stamp, Lara Stone and Reggie Watts mucking about with spaceships

wooooh trippy video from Peter "Monsterism" Fowler for The Horrors. Plus you can download wallpapers, and more usefully, some Horrors masks to cut out. Love it when people make a bit of an effort. Still listening to this album too
