Hot Chip: Sexual Healing (Marvin Gaye cover)
Hot Chip was one of the breakout electronic groups in 2004 with thier album, Coming On Strong, but they had been around long before that with remixes and EPs. They’ve recently announced that they will be releasing their fourth studio album, One Life Stand, and it’s supposedly a wild blend of everything from soul music to modern R&B to house and more.
I came across their cover of Marvin Gaye’s “Sexual Healing” a couple of weeks ago and I still love it. It maintains Gaye’s cool soul vibe but also echos a trippy electronic sound with vocals that sound like they’re buffering during playback.
Take a listen to it below, grab the mp3, and make sure to check out their new album once it’s officially released on February 8th, 2010.
