  they tried to make me go to rehab
<- Michael Leon of Commonwealth Stacks, a neato t-shirt company.

Skulls, lightning bolts, bright colors, sunglasses, photoshop/photocopy textures, masks, and the shadow of terror: this sounds like a list of design and streetwear clich├ęs circa 2006. It is, and you can them all at the left but there's nothing tired or boilerplate about Michael Leon's work. Instead, it's something new and fun and hard to pin down. Young people: transcend your influences.

Do The Whirlwind (Hot Chip Remix)- Architecture in Helsinki


Rehab (Hot Chip Remix)- Amy Winehouse

According to discogs, Hot Chip did 10 official remixes in 2006, for a total 24 remixes in the past three years. They also released an album this year, which is quite good, and the band received its fair share of remixes as well. This is beginning to be a formidable catalog, but do not fear. It's all wheat, no chaff, all the time, which is something special. Listen how they approach ensemble indie and vintage-inspired British soul with equal aplomb and equal success.
