"Night and Day," the first single from Hot Chip’s upcoming album, In Our Heads, sounds like it belongs in one of those under-earth cave levels of Super Mario Bros. for Super Nintendo, if Mario and Luigi's endgame was rescuing Princess Toadstool from a bad dance party to bring her to one that Alexis Taylor and company were soundtracking. As the song progresses, dankness blooms into bright, syncopated waves and Taylor asks, "Do I look like a rapper?" Sure, why not. In Our Heads is out June 12th, but you can preorder it on iTunes and vinyl now.
