New Build

New Build is a new project from Hot Chip members Felix Martin and Al Doyle, who was also a member of LCD Soundsystem, and they are joined by engineer Tom Hopkins. They put out the limited edition "Misery Loves Company" 12" on November 28, which you can stream below and purchase at bandcamp. The b-side has a track called "Guitar Man," which features Pat Mahoney of LCD Soundsystem on drums and a remix by DFA labelmate Planningtorock of another track called "Finding Reasons," which also features vocals from Planningtorock.

New Build played their first show the day after the 12"'s release (11/29) in London. They are now planning a full length for 2012 and a tour in support of it which will come to NYC on March 13 at Mercury Lounge. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (12/30) at noon. The NYC show is the only one we know of at the moment but a full tour announcement will come soon.

Meanwhile, Al Doyle and Felix Martin's Hot Chip bandmates have been involved in other projects this year. Alexis Taylor has been playing as a member of About Group, which also features members of This Heat and Spiritualized. They released their debut album, Start and Complete on Domino Records this past April.

Joe Goddard released the Gabriel EP in August via DFA. You can stream that below. He's also been working as a member of The 2 Bears with DJ Raf Rundell. Earlier this week, they put out a winter mix which you can download for free in exchange for your email address at their website. Their debut LP, Be Strong, will be out on January 30 via Southern Fried.

Their shows are not that bad. It was not spectacular, but if you want to chill, then their concerts are for you.
