Dr. Dog‘s new record Shame Shame is out 4/6. Here’s the first release off that album, “Shadow People” which premiered today on Stereogum. Apparently My Morning Jacket singer Jim James has some vocals on the record as well, which should be interesting. Looking forward to this one. Also, really hoping they add some more NY tour dates aside from the Terminal 5 gig this Spring. (That place blows, sorry Term 5, but its true.)
Hot Chip have released a second song off their 10-track forthcoming album, One Life Stand, due out early next month. I have to say, I don’t have good news to report. I wasn’t exactly thrilled with the first song they leaked back in November, Take It In and I’m even less so with this one. Is it just me? Or is there something missing? There’s no crescendo, no build-up to a rockin dance party like I’m used to. Maybe I just need to give it a few more listens. Lemme know what you guys think.
