Thread: This year's Hot Chip/Cut Copy?

    Default This year's Hot Chip/Cut Copy?

    I'm not really familiar with a lot of these bands but I was really into what I heard from Hot Chip last year (and the year before) and Cut Copy. Who is along those lines this year?

    Check out the Junior Boys.

    Hot Chip has remixed a few tracks....I think it sounds fairly similar.

    Junior Boys and Hercules and Love Affair are where you need to look.

    For sure.

    expect them. love them. they are going to become legends after coachella.

    Have you seen Presets live?

    I have, many times. and believe me when I say they are up there with Cut/Copy.

    Hot Chip is in their own arena of hipster epicness.

    eh, MSTRKRFT and Crystal Castles are a lot more like each other than Hot Chip, IMO...

    Although some like to refer to them as MSTRKRP, they had a good Saturday afternoon show in the Sahara when I saw 'em.

    no I haven't, I've been meaning to.

    don't get me wrong, presets are excellent. they're just not that live band-y, guitars and drums and synthesizers-y---

    wait I just did some youtube research, you guys are right.

    i know i've said this before, but yeah, the albums didn't really sell me either. i think it's the production value as well as when they play live they just become this epic anthem dance band that doesn't come through on the album. they have some serious energy and stage presence.

    i already know you will be floored by them at coach. and i will be right there with you!

    Yeah, I'm surprised Hot Chip didn't want to make this their third year in a row... I'm also surprised Cut Copy didn't wanna come back since their album was pretty much in the top ten of 2008 from tons of blogs

    Crystal Castles has a long way to go to be an amazing band. They need more pratice and more travel under their belts. I predict an M.I.A. level of disaster for CC.

    Throbbing Gristle. Don't listen to anything and just go see the show. You'll be pleasantly surprised.

    I agree with this. The Presets will definitely be the one to bring the house down in the vein of Hot Chip and Cut Copy. I love Cut Copy but the Presets will outdo them. That's how it was for their joint tour. As for Glass Candy, they're ok but they don't have the oomph (or bpm) to throw the crowd over the edge like the Presets do. Their Echoplex show last year was forgettable.
