I’ve decided to spin up another series to get all of you immersed into all of the great music that’s out there. I’ve decided to challenge myself to a music based 365 project where I post a different song everyday that has some sort of value to me. Another constraint I am putting on this challenge is that I will attempt to use only one song by any given artist, with the exclusion of side projects or solo works. I think this will be a fun way to introduce new and different types of music to all the readers out there, and maybe even let you get to know me a little more.
The first song comes from the electro pop outfit Hot Chip. The reason why I chose this song, and the radio session in particular, is because Hot Chip is one of the few pop acts out there that still writes their own music, plays their own instruments, and do it well. Sadly, I have not seen this band live, and regret missing out on Lollapalooza 2010, where they played.
Hot Chip’s latest album, One Life Stand, is by far my favorite work from them. The songs are catchy, creative, and defines the direction that Hot Chip wants to go as a band. Without further adieu, I bring to you “I Feel Better”.
For all you Spotify users, I’ll be creating playlists based on monthly selections. Be on the lookout!
