Members of Hot Chip and LCD Soundsystem to Release New Album
New Build will release their debut album Yesterday Was Lived and Lost on April 3 via the band’s own imprint, Lanark Recordings. The London-based group features Hot Chip/LCD Soundsystem’s Al Doyle, Hot Chip’s Felix Martin and Tom Hopkins. According to the band, their new album “is the meeting point for some pretty strange and varied ideas. These are by and large pop songs, both bold and intimate, which draw inspiration from the eccentricities of British artists such as the Human League, Peter Gabriel, Robert Wyatt, Chris & Cosey, Cabaret Voltaire and Eno, but the production often utilises the building blocks of house and techno music and there are some echoes of James Murphy’s LCD productions, particularly in Doyle’s super-tight disco guitar riffs.” The group will showcase their new sound at New York’s Mercury Lounge on March 13 and 14.
