Hot Chip finally got a stateside release for their Coming On Strong LP a few weeks back, our interoffice excitement was tempered by the reality that what we really, really wanted was some new new from the HC. Their freshly-recorded "Over And Over" single came out at the same time, but as rad as it was, our desire for tuneage still went unslaked. SLAKE US! We found out about the Chip's mix CD, which recently got a promotional leakage throughout faraway lands, and went about tracking it down, hoping it would do the trick. It does. Even though most of the songs aren't the band's own (no doy it's a mixtape), they all stem from the same weird-ass musical mentality that made us love Hot Chip in the first place. Put in the work to track this one down (and the UK-only Barbarian EP while you're at it), you'll be glad you did.
