war_child_heroes.jpgNot many bands could cover Joy Division without risking the goodwill they’ve accrued, but Hot Chip are more or less the best thing in modern music, so this is fine. Really, it’s fine.
Part of the forthcoming War Child Heroes album, ver Chip’s cover of ver Division’s “Transmission” incorporates steel drums and that weird effect where it sounds like someone is singing underwater what is that called I don’t know answers on a postcard, etc.
