Most blogged artists: The National, Hot Chip, Prins Thomas
Tuesday 30 March 2010
Brooklyn indie band The National keeps its status as the most blogged musical act of the moment on March 30, according to The Hype Machine, followed by Oregon-based experimental folk rock band Blitzen Trapper and Scottish group Teenage Fanclub. Amiong acts who have climbed into the top ten this week are Hot Chip and Prins Thomas.
British electropop band Hot Chip enjoyed its most recent round of blogosphere buzz following the February 1 release of One Life Stand. The band is back in the blogs with the release of the "I Feel Bonnie," a reworking of the track "I Feel Better" off the new album. "I Feel Bonnie" features American folk singer Bonnie Prince Billy and is due to be released April 17 (Record Store Day in the UK) on a limited edition record along with the new Hot Chip track "Bear Witness."
Prins Thomas (real name Thomas Moen Hermansen) is a Norwegian producer who often collaborates with Hans-Peter Lindstrøm to create music that is often categorized as "space disco." The producer is set to released his debut solo album on his label Full Pupp in April and has shared the single "Uggebugg" off that album. Dipped in Dollars (dippedindollars.com) writes "They're calling his sound 'cosmic disco' over in Norway, but I think these reverb heavy instrumentals speak for themselves."
