Hot Chip
European sensation Hot Chip started making music because the bandmates were bored with everything new and just couldn't get over their old favorites. "We loved Phil Spector and the Beach Boys, Kraftwerk and Robert Wyatt, Timbaland and Madlib, Brian Eno and Devo, Anti-Pop Consortium and Aphex Twin, Will Oldham and Royal Trux," recounts the band's bio. Mix it all up, and you get a peppy, critically adored mix that percolates from shoegazer drone to retro-new-wave-old-school electro funk. Granted, that sounds weird, but trust us: You can dance to it.
