Hot Chip X The Simpsons

Last nights episode of The Simpsons ‘A Totally Fun Thing That Bart Will Never Do Again’ featured a great musical moment and plenty of sly nods to David Foster Wallace’s famous essay ‘A Supposedly Fun Thing I’ll Never Do Again’ – including a post humous cameo from the man himself. But as much of a fan of Wallace’s work that I am, my favourite moment came in the soundtracking of the opening sequence.

Bart’s repetitive and dreary school week was soundtracked by classic Hot Chip track ‘Boy From School’ – the juxtaposition of a genre defining electro track & standout Hot Chip Single, with America’s favourite TV family is a great little moment.

Check it out below, and if you happen to catch the episode, look out for Animal Collective’s ‘Winter’s Love’ later in the show.
