Hot Chip at Highline Ballroom in 2010 (more by Vincent Cornelli)
Hot Chip

We just mentioned that Hot Chip/LCD Soundsystem side project New Build added a second Mercury Lounge show (3/14) happening one day after their sold out NYC debut at the same venue (3/13). Tickets are on AmEx presale and go on sale Friday (1/20) at noon. These two shows are now part of a longer tour that the band will be on in March, but they are still the only two North American dates. All dates are listed below.

New Build just announced their second release on their own Lanark Recordings, a limited edition 12" single (they're only pressing 500 copies) called "Do You Not Feel Loved?" with remixes by Dominik Eulberg and Juju & Jordash. You can pre-order the single now and stream it along with its b-sides below.

In related news, as producer Mark Ralph reveals on twitter, he just finished producing the new Hot Chip album which the band said they had one song left to record for about a week earlier. As Fact points out, Hot Chip seem to confirm the news (that the album recording is complete). Hopefully that will see a release date this year.

Updated New Build dates and stream below...

They are on a downward slope. Every album get worse and worse. Joe Goddard is the only member doing anything decent nowadays!

I completely disagree 2:04. Every Hot Chip album is incredibly different stylistically and rather than repeat the same formula again and again they continue to reinvent their sound.

The Warning was amazing! But since then, Hot Chip seem to have a few good songs per album mixed with a bunch of R&B shit. They put on a great live show, but I too think they are falling off as a band. I predict this will be their last record!

I'm liking this New Build. Sounds fresher than what Hot Chip has been releasing lately.

Their 1st album was nothing but R&B shit 2:29... and it was AMAZING!

Did anyone else have the problem of the presale tickets being sold out within the first minute?

Ugh, just awful.

Yeah, the first record has it's R&B moments, but it was sorta tongue and cheek and really funky. Now it's straight up VH1 R&B.

Um, 3:13, look around, dude. Hot Chip are definitely not the only white dudes doing R&B slow jams these days. They just happened to be ahead of the curve.

Plus, IMO One Life Stand was more heavily influenced by Technique-era New Order and 90s house music.

I listened to all their tracks on soundcloud and I have to say, this shit is garbage. The sort of chill/electro/disco/pop songs themselves are interesting enough, but the lyrics and singing are just crap. Can't really get past it.
