BBC Essential Mix

    You can now hear Hot Chip’s One Life Stand follow-up In Our Heads in its entirety by heading over here. But Alexis Taylor, Joe Goddard and the rest of the group haven’t wasted any time in moving on from the album already—just witness this cover of Prince’s “If I Was Your Girlfriend” from a recent BBC session. Hot Chip returned to the BBC again following that piece of tributary, this time to lay down their contribution to Radio 1’s fabled Essential Mix series. The band took over the studio for two hours, offering a delirious mix of some of their current musical fascinations. The mix is streaming over at the BBC site for the next five days only, so head over here to check it out.
