Paul, if you're reading this, PLEASE don't let Hot Chip and The XX conflict on Saturday.

There, that's all. Just had to get it out there.

The Xx = Explosions in the Sky + Chris Isaak's "Wicked Game" x Horny

WHOA. It's like the same song! But in a good way. The only time I've listened to the xx album was on a long drive and by the end of the album I wasn't that focused on it, thus how this went unnoticed.

that song clicked with me right away and i've listened to it like 100 times. i love it.

but yes, it is like the same song

And I usually get pissed off when bands blatantly rip off songs. But for some reason I'm fascinated at how the xx did it, and applaud them for it.

I was thinking the same thing today, but with Portishead instead of Chris Isaak.

The XX and Hot Chip both SUCK!!

The XX sounds NOTHING like Portishead or Explosions in the Sky. Both of those bands are pure quality and talent, something The XX definitely dont have. The XX might just be the most overrated group in this years lineup.

The Xx sound like Bedhead to me, but then again so do Explosions in the sky and the Album Leaf.

I *really* like The Xx, but I am sorry, I just don't see the comparison to Explosions in the Sky...?

i don't get the EITS comparison at all... i mean, they both play music, but otherwise...?

I hear a stripped-down New Order, with those wandering guitar riffs. Anyway, they're good.

malcolmjamalawesome
02-12-2010, 08:03 AM
Please note that I made the comparison after having listened total to about 2 minutes of EITS. I stand by my comparison, however.

The first time I put this CD on it was mostly being used as background noise while I was at work. Wasn't really paying attention to it when something clicked and I was like, whoa, what is this? I started it over, turned it a little louder, and bascially havn't stopped playing it in two months. It's that good. Not sure how they will be live, I like my outdoor fests to be a little more upbeat, but this album is phenomenal.

I guess you either get it or you don't.

Hot Chip does extremely little for me, but I connected hard with The xx right upon first listen

Hot Chip.. just started listening to them and thought, meh. But then i watched a live video and it changed everything. Not only do they add a lot to their live sets but the lead singer is just the strangest guy, and i love it. looks like a combination of pee wee herman and mclovin.

tessalasset
02-13-2010, 12:11 AM
Hot Chip live sets are ridiculous. There have been multiple songs on their albums I've been lukewarm towards until I saw them live. They take it to such a higher level.

Reminder to look up Hot Chip live on youtube.

you and your friends are dumbasses. that set was the perfect way to head into the triple header of Kraftwerk - Portishead - Prince.

The new Hot Chip album is pretty good, though I'm not sure it will provoke the sort of dance party they brought in 2008.

It's OK. Only song I'm really looking forward to hear live from their new album is "We Have Love"

maybe I'm missing something but how are these audiences exactly the same?

In now way do the XX make me want to get sweaty and dance my ass off. get sweaty and have sex sure.

I think for once Hot Chip will be performing at night. XX will probably be on during the day. I think anyone wanting to see both will be quite safe.

I hoping they get on stage with each other.

I read some interview with them last month where they talked about how they're going to bump up the new songs for their live shows. Make them more dancey.

I'm living proof that this statement is incorrect.

So I'm wrong about the fact that I like the XX and not Hot Chip?

I hate that I can't search for the xx here because the words are too small.

I can't wait to see this band! I keep forgetting that they're on Saturday, my least conflict day. W00t!

They sounded really good. I'm really impressed how well the guy keeps time using those drum pads. It is not an easy task to make it sound as tight as it does.

I agree that those comparisons are pretty faulty, but I don't think they suck. The media reaction to them is a little bit over-excited, but they definitely have some talent and are fun to listen to.

i'm pretty sure everyone who likes the xx also likes hot chip.

but does everyone who likes Hot Chip like The XX?

The xx are good, I'm just not seeing why there is such hype over them and I have listened to that album probably a good 15 times or so and every time I'm done listening to it I just think "meh"

Do they bring something to their live show that I'm not aware of? I want to really like 'em, I'm just not.

tessalasset
03-19-2010, 01:27 PM
their live show is pretty mellow. more of a loungey act. you just want to sit down and chill while watching them. but it sounds damn good and all their songs translate well and they're just fucking cool up there on stage.

amy you really should try out some live hot chip. they might change your mind.

Their Mojave set in 07 totally won me over. Previous to seeing that show I thought they were kind of boring, but their music seemed to make more sense live. I'v been a fan since.

tessalasset
03-19-2010, 01:55 PM
exactly. they just add so much to every song when they play it live and make them more danceable.
