Live at The Enmore Theatre
Runtime: 1 hr 30 minThey’ve been called everything from the UK’s answer to Devo to geeky Londoners in cardigans. But one thing everyone can agree on is Hot Chip can put on one of the best live dance parties around. And that’s exactly what Hot Chip did in Sydney earlier this month: delivered a fierce onslaught of infectious synth-pop perfection at disorientating speed to the eager crowd at the Enmore.

A Session With Foals
Runtime: 12 minBeing from the rain-ridden lands of England, Foals are used to a different kind of festival environment: generally speaking, frontman Yannis Philippakis described them as "mud and wellies" ordeals. So we're sure they were quite pleased to travel halfway around the world to the California desert to perform for Coachella's music-hungry crowds. Prior to taking to the stage in Indio, however, Foals made a pit stop at our little poolside bungalow to perform a Festival Fever Session featuring songs off their highly-acclaimed, recent full-length Holy Fire. While you might have already seen the band's in-the-flesh transformation of "My Number" into a slow-burning beaut, we've expanded the session to include the subtle closer "Moon".
Live at Beck’s Festival Bar
Runtime: 43 minThe UK based band Metronomy started out as a bedroom project by Joseph Mount, who during its early stages was the sole contributor to the band's repertoire. After the debut release, Mount started expanding the band's personnel: first by adding two members, and later increasing it by one more. Metronomy's critical acclaim comes from frenetically hybrid indie pop style knitted together with trademark electronic sounds inspired by Mount's favorite acts, namely Autechre and Funkstorung. Here Metronomy performs at Beck's Festival Bar, in Sydney, Australia, on January 15, 2009.
