silky disco jam “how do you do” from hot chip’s latest album in our heads is given a space-aged remix by scandinavian dance master todd terje that ups the song’s shuffle, effectively stretching it into a dizzying 9-minute odyssey. check it out below.
been a minute since we heard from the always smooth mayer hawthorne. and thankfully, that’s not the only “slip” up we’ve encountered. with another video from last year’s how do you do, mayer’s back in all his seersucker-lovin’ glory.
taken from the new album in our heads, hot chip’s roller disco jam “how do you do?” gets a cheesy green screen video starring the band that’s as fun to watch as it is to dance to. check it out above.
hot chip’s website is reporting that the band will be scoring “the introductory music for the olympics table tennis competition.” well if it had to be any sport…
while this song is only a bonus track on how do you do, live shows can change everything. mayer hawthorne has been closing out his setlists with “henny & ginger ale” while giving out mixed cocktails – which i’m guessing helped propel this to a #1 priority to shoot a video for.
great news here, folks. mayer hawthorne’s shows are a shit ton of fun, and i’m glad to know that he’ll be stopping by a handful of texas cities for some good old times. no openers announced yet, but the dates are below the jump.
always nice to see mayer hawthorne dropping videos, as it’s always an ace outing. this shit reminds me of chuck e. cheese – all the good parts, sans pizza.
mayer stops by npr for a quick interview and live performances of four songs, all of which show up on his brand new effort, how do you do.
much better than nickelback, right? mayer, his dad and some others hit his basement to perform a slew of cuts from his catalog, including “your easy lovin,” “the walk,” “a long time” and “the ills.”
watch it at RS.
mayer hawthorne and an attractive brunette get their mr. and mrs. smith song, set to the tune of his incredible single, “the walk.” when you’re done watching this masterpiece of a music video, be sure to go find a less distracting version of the song and do it some justice. then watch the video 7 more times.
how do you do is on itunes today, in stores next week.
some of mayer’s friends put together a PSA for his new record, how do you do. while it was originally scheduled for an october 11th release, the early leak forced stones throw’s hand to release it to iTunes a week early, so go cop.
#mayermondays is still in full effect, as this week’s installment gave us a stream of his follow up single to “a long time.” and while you can buy the fantastic track “the walk” on iTunes, feel free to stream it below for free. i’m enjoying the fact that mayer hawthorne’s refined his voice a bit. how do you do drops october 11th.
gigantic late pass here. how the hell did i let this one fly by me? regardless, you all know how 5 days in internet is like 3 months in the real word. here we have a few announcements:
-mayer hawthorne has signed a record deal with universal republic, where he’ll release his second album.
-the title of the album is how do you do, and “a long time” is the first single.
-buy the single on itunes.
