Since forming ten years ago, the English, synth-loving electro-pop group Hot Chip have released four records and toured the world, and they're currently on tour with DFA label-mates LCD Soundsystem.

Their singles "Over and Over" and "Boy From School" sparked their popularity. They've also been known to do several covers live, including the Prince-written "Nothing Compares 2 U," made famous in the early '90s by Sinead O'Connor.

Songs performed: "Take It In," "Alley Cats" and "Hand Me Down Your Love."
