♫ Hot Chip – My Piano / This was a tough choice but I went with this pre-Made In The Dark non-album jam that is actually my most played of theirs.

♫ LCD Soundsystem – All My Friends / No brainer.

I’ll pick the winner at random on Wednesday at midnight (PST). (Anyone in the world can enter but the prize can only be sent to a US address so keep that in mind.) It’s not required to enter but I’m curious which band you guys like more. Can we get a little battle of the fans going on here?  Good luck!

UPDATE: and I have selected a winner! Congratulations Bbolman! He wrote:

Hot Chip – Thieves in the Night
LCD Soundsystem – New York I Love You, But You’re Bringing Me Down
Too mainstream? Screw ya, those are fantastic songs.

Thanks to everyone for entering. There was a crazy range of favorite tracks, with no single jam getting more than 2 or 3 votes. What a testament to the quality of both bands!

    Hot Chip – “The Warning” / I love the sweet tinkle of the xylophone set against the deadpan lyrics.LCD Soundsystem – “Pow Pow” / This was a tough pick over “Sound of Silver”, but again I love the lyrics. This song is James Murphy at his worldweary but masterful dance/punk finest.

    LCD Soundsystem – All My Friends / Such a relaxing song to me.
    Hot Chip- One Life Stand / This one was hard to choose but I’m absolutely in love with this song.

    LCD all the wayyy bitches.

    Hot Chip-One Pure Thought

    LCD Soundsystem-Tribulations

    I think I tend to like Hot Chip songs more initially, but the love fades. Once a LCD Soundsystem song gets me, I love it forever.

    I definitely listen to Hot Chip a lot more than LCD. So I would have to say I favor them.

    I’m with you on Hot Chip, I love My Piano. Its one of my all time sitting on the train, on my way to hang out with some friends lets get in a good mood songs. Just a perfect track.

    As for LCD, got to say Daft Punk is Playing at My House. It is pretty much the most fun song.

    Hot Chip – Take it In : come on people that song is sooo awesome!!
    LCD Soundsystem – Can Change : it’s tough to pick up one best song for this band which has so many great ones but I love the pace and rhythm of Can change, when i first listened to it I fell like I already knew it!

    Hot Chip-I feel Better- (i wish it was you and not not sleighbells in montclair…)

    Lcd Soundsystem- all my friends. There might not be a better feeling in the world than listening to that song with your arms around all your friends and all your fellow concert goers and just feeling this tangible love that eminates from the stage. Im sorry that sounds so cheesy but its completley true. That song has taken me to an entirely other level 3 different times this summer and fall and I can’t ask for anything more from a live experience!

    LCD Soundsystem – Pow Pow definitely takes the cake.

    Hot Chip – And I Was a Boy From School has a fantastically funky beat. Love it.

    Hot Chip – “Wrestlers”
    You weigh bigger than a train

    LCD Soundsystem – “North American Scum”
    Some people still think we’re from England.
    We’re not.

    love both the bands but a sucker for the slower songs

    LCD Soundsystem – Someone great.
    amazing song and you really feel it live. also loved the beat when I first heard it on the Nike Run album.

    Hot Chip – No Fit State.
    this was tough. but this song really gets to me.

    LCD for listening solo – Hot Chip to get in the mood at pre-drinks

    Disappointed this can’t be shipped to the UK :-(

    Hot Chip: “Over and Over”. First song of theirs I liked, and love the video.

    LCD: “Someone Great”… although I love “Us v Them”, too. (Who else can get away with announcing, “Bells,” and then playing a cowbell in the middle of a song? haha)

    Definitely more of an LCD fan. “Sound of Silver” is a fantastic pick-me-up album.

    Hot Chip: And I Was A Boy From School
    LCD: All My Friends

    Love LCD a little more than I love Hot Chip, but that isn’t saying much. Both are on heavy rotation.

    Hot Chip – One Life Stand – Saw them perform this live at Lollapalooza and oh my god, I died and went to heaven.

    LCD Soundsystem – Disco Infiltrator

    Hot Chip – The Warning Always reminds me of Moscow’s Media Mart for some reason.

    LCD Soundsystem – All I Want – Love this song.

    Hot Chip – Over and Over.

    LCD Soundsystem – Get Innocuous.

    (LCD does SUCH great intro-to-album songs! And maybe in a year, I will say “Dance Yrself Clean” is my favorite. I relisten to LCD every couple of months and I always have different favorites. Hot Chip is awesome too, but easier to choose what my favorites are)

    LCD Soundsystem – All My Friends

    Hot Chip – Take It In

    Two great songs, not exactly similar but I love them both. “Take It In” with the haunting vocals on verses and beautiful chorus, and “All My Friends” with the all-around feel good sound.

    Hot Chip — Crap Craft Dinner. How is this song not on the list?? Smoothness has never been so auditory. I swear I’m gonna play this song as the first dance at my wedding.
    (for raw, off the walls danceability, I might go with Boy From School. in concert this song is like ecstasy)

    LCD – North American Scum. Gets me pumped every time!

    Hot Chip over LCD. But I’ve never seen LCD live and that’s what sold me on Hot Chip.

    Hot Chip – Ready for the Floor

    Hot Chip – We’re looking for a lot of love – it’s like this perfect song for people in their mid 20’s

    LCD SOundsystem – Someone great – c’mon “I wish that we could talk about it, but then… that’s the problem” – luv it…
