After 13 years of blending crystalline New Order vocals with upbeat, indie-leaning electronic rhythms on five records and uncountable EPs, the London synthpop quintet Hot Chip are playing their biggest-ever New York headlining show tonight. They haven’t released anything major since June of last year—which is surprising for a group that put out nine releases in 2006, when hit single “Over and Over” was being played over and over—but that album, In Our Heads, ranks among the band’s catchiest and most consistent. Singles like “Night & Day” and “Don’t Deny Your Heart” bubble with giddy indie-disco dance beats and brim with carefree positivity in a way the occasionally maudlin LCD Soundsystem never quite embraced. With Tanlines and a DJ set by the Crystal Ark.
