The press release on this tune read as a melding of Hot Chip and The Dandy Warhols. That was definitely enough to peak my interest in regards to Avid Dancer. This song doesn’t have the immediacy of a HC bounding hook, but I can definitely hear that cool swoon in the bits of vocals. There’s a steadier pacing too, at least until you move your way into the beat-y chorus. I like the infectious attitude, but I also appreciate the restraint; it means longevity in my listening rotation. This tune is the title track from the I Want To See you Dance EP, which comes out on October 21st.

Were you aware that the Dandy Warhols were still touring? I wasn’t… If this makes you all happy inside, head to Emo’s for a set by the band who rose to fame in the late 90s. Opening support will be provided by Spindrift.[audio: http://austintownhall.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/09/08-Sleep-1.mp3]
