Song of the week
The 2 Bears – Not This Time
Joe Goddard is the main musical genius in Hot Chip. He's been a silent hero, producing other people's records, quietly releasing his own and churning out knowledgeable remixes. He has partnered up once again with Raf Rundell as The 2 Bears, a wide-ranging dance project and the new single from the album The Night Is Young out next month, Not This Time is a classic glittering disco-funk ear-worm. They also play Dublin's Opium Rooms on November 1.
No, it's not U2 in your iTunes
Yeah Yeah Yeahs' Karen O released a solo album called Crush Songs last week and as a surprise to the singer and us, her director friend Spike Jonze made a video for one of the songs. “It just seemed like if you have the Opera House, that song and Elle Fanning together, you shouldn’t let the opportunity go by. So we made this as a surprise gift for Karen to congratulate her on her album. She is going to see this for the first time as you do. I hope you enjoy.”
