Fresh Track: New Build “Do You Not Feel Loved?”
Members of Hot Chip and LCD Soundsystem uniting to form a new group in 2012? What’s next…that the recession will be over and people will live as carefree as they did in the 90’s? Well that may be jumping the gun a bit, but I’m sure you get the point. Al Doyle (Hot Chip, LCD Soundsystem), Felix Martin (Hot Chip) and Tom Hopkins have joined forced to form New Build, the newest and best sound coming out of London at this very moment in time. Earlier this month, the band released “Do You Not Feel Loved” off their debut album entitled Yesterday Was Lived and Lost, which is available digitally to stream and purchase on the group’s Bandcamp page. If it’s the vinyl you want, you’ll have to wait another week for it to ship, but order now as only 1000 copies are available. The track featured in this post is exactly what you’d expect to hear when you read the words “Hot Chip”, “LCD Soundsystem” and “new band” in the opening sentence, and that is fantastic electronic music you’d want to get faded with on a Saturday night. The combo of the two bands is most evident in the beat, with Hot Chip style synths leading the way and LCD Soundsystem’s multi-beat breakdown joining in. As always, listen, enjoy, and share.
