Happy June and welcome to the year’s first outdoor edition of Knock Knock: New Music from my back deck! I have some more flowers & decorations to add, but it least I’m out here again.
So this is Pride Month and here in Boston we have Pride Week going on right now. This year marks the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Riots in Greenwich Village and the beginning of the modern LGBT rights movement. We’ll be talking more about that throughout the month.
With Summer upon us I’m in the mood for something dancey, so let’s turn to London electronic act Hot Chip. Formed back in 2000, they focus on indie-pop and alternative dance. They’re touring Europe at the moment, but will be at Royale in Boston on September 9th.
“A Bathfull Of Ecstasy” is the 7th studio LP from Hot Chip. It comes-out June 21st on Domino Recordings and I’m going with the first single, “Hungry Child.” It’s just been added to the Knock Knock: New Music playlist. Happy listening! -Kristen
