I think this is pretty self explanitory.

But if you'd like an explanation as to why I made this poll, I was listening to some Hot Chip, then some Bullfrog, then some Gorillaz, then some LCD Sound System, and I thought both Hot Chip and LCD are both similar style, and I wanted to know what everyone else thinks abotu this....I chose LCD.

Hot Chip are too poppy when compared to LCD Soundsystem. And, Hot Chip got old. Fast. (still want to see them live tho)

LCD SS for the win, easily;

Only one of these acts is any good.

LCD Soundsystem sound is much more mature than Hot Chip.

Both bands are great, but James Murphy is a god.

Al from Hot Chip plays guitar for LCD a lot.

Hey They are only telling us that Daft Punk is playing in their backyard, isnt that enough?


LCD ftw

The singer from Hot Chip told me Daft Punk played at his house too, but he didnt write a song about it. LCD.

Edit: I still like Made In The Dark better than any of their other albums though.

I'm not a huge fan of either of their records but LCD absolutely melted my face off in 2007 so I voted for them.

No capability for making sounds that don't make my ears want to have a powerdrill run through them.

Definitely LCD. Especially after seeing them at the El Rey last year. My God those shows were amazing.

I gave the slight edge to LCD as Mr Murphay shows a little more versitility in song writing. Hot Chip definatly has a good thing going for them.

I disagree with the OP saying they have a similar style. I also disagree with the statement that Hot Chip is more poppy. I would say Hot Chip's stuff is more avant-garde whereas LCD is more likely to follow a pop blueprint in how they arrange their songs.

LCD is great live but Hot Chip's live act is sick... a much more frenetic energy. They are more likely to go off and jam freestyle to my booty-shakin content.

As much as I love LCD, had to vote for the Chipsters.

I love Hot Chip, but that guy's voice is too soft...It shouldn't arouse me as much as it does. LCD on the other hand...Dude sounds like's got a bad cold. Not so sexy but pretty cool.

I still like Made In The Dark better than any of their other albums though.

I just listened to the first 4 or 5 tracks on Made In The Dark. It seems like all pop sensibility they had on The Warning is completely gone.

TonyWonder
01-28-2008, 10:51 AM
They are both great, especially live. I have to give the edge to Hot Chip because I just plain dig them more even though I have more respect for LCD.

MGMT destroys both them.

MGMT sounds exactly like bands that already sounded tired in 1986.

stick to paul simon then. coachella probably too advanced for you though.

Okay..."Hold On" is good...it's pop...but it still doesn't hold a candle to The Warning. It just doesn't. For me.

See...I didn't make a statement as fact...people should learn this skill. It prevents wars.

LCD is one group, i've REALLY REALLY tried to like.. I've downloaded their cds.. and tried to see them at coachella (but couldn't the tent was too packed, saw mike relm instead), but I just don't see what is so great about them. I like Hot Chip a lot more..

03-07-2008, 08:33 PM
Weird. I've spent the last week listening to the sound of silver and lcd soundsystem for the past week and continue to be blown away. Someone mentioned them in another thread as one of the best bands in the last 5 years. I'm starting to come up with the same conclusion. I will be seeing hot chip this year though.

listen to the new lcd song on the myspace, it's off some soundtrack or something, but it's fucking amazing. i don't think it's fair to put hot chip and lcd in the same light - hot chip is purposefully going for fun and cheesy electronic pop with their whole keyboard-nerds-who-like-rock-image, and they pull it off amazingly, both live and on select tracks from their albums. lcd on the other hand, is just hard as fuck disco being created from the bare essentials, i.e. drums, guitar, bass, and various analog keys which i think is amazingly, utterly, and completely superb:)

fatbastard

hektaxKs
03-10-2008, 03:18 PM
It goes back and forth....and that's what rocks about their relationship....they feed off of each other, at least that's how I see it. I mean James Murphy did sign Hot Chip to his label and all... right now I'm really digging Wrestlers off of Hot Chip's new album along with all the other songs. Although, I'm sure I'll be swinging back to LCD's corner when he puts out his next album.

UpAllNite
03-13-2008, 10:19 AM
Both amazing, but I think Hot Chip is just a little better than LCD as far as their recorded music goes. I was surprised by the lop sided results, I thought it would be alot closer.

this is a fucking laughable hilarious joke.

yeah i agree with goodtoknow.. MGMT needs another 2-3 albums of good music before u can compare them to anyone in the stature of hot chip and LCD

i have never bothered making a comparison
and the thing with hot chip is... i cant even let myself sit through the first 4 to 6 seconds of any of there songs.. i dont know why, i just dont get hooked

lcd soundsystem has an EPIC live performance though
so they win

I never said hot chip is better than LCD. I was only replying to you "LCD's slightly retarded, redheaded step-brother" comment.

Having never seen either, I can say that I like Hot Chip's records more. However, my chance to see LCD is coming first, maybe their Sasquatch set will change how I feel about their material. Then I hope to see Hot Chip when they do a proper tour for One Life Stand.
