LCD Soundsystem at the Fillmore, 10/20/10

With Hot Chip
10.20.10 | Fillmore Auditorium, Denver, CO

It's surprising that Hot Chip isn't more popular in Colorado. Priming the stage for LCD Soundsystem last night at the Fillmore, the U.K. band's music is definitely electronic at its base, but layers of guitar and living drumming lean heavily on jammy movements. "Colors," "Over and Over" and newer songs like "We Have Love" filled the venue's massive space with Hot Chip's complex harmonies, as Alexis Taylor's subtle coo led his bandmates' voices, synthesizers, maracas and noodling guitars through an almost seamless set.
