You'd think a song titled "Ready for the Floor" that begins, "Do it, do it, do it now/Say it, say it, say it now" would be a four-alarm dance track about going wild in a dark club somewhere. In reality, Hot Chip's 2008 track of that name -- one of its signature tunes -- is a bashful, subtle, perfectly manicured slice of synth-pop about coming out of your shell and finally experiencing some of those wild times:

2012's In Our Heads, the fifth record from the London five-piece, carries on that same sweet, modest charm via both upbeat tunes like "Don't Deny Your Heart" and star-gazing ballads such as "Look At Where We Are." Tonight's Hot Chip show at Mezzanine is a DJ set; although the band as a whole maintains links to DJ and remix culture (Hot Chip has remixed Gorillaz and Foals), the show will likely feature co-front man Alexis Taylor on the decks by his lonesome.
