Hot Chip's Joe Goddard has announced a new album called "Electric Lines". This will be Goddard's sophomore solo album (the first one coming out back in 2009). Goddard's latest work was back on Hot Chip's 2015 album "Why Make Sense". Goddard has shared two singles from the album: "Lose Your Love" and “Music Is the Answer”. The album will be out April 21st via pril 21 via Greco-Roman/Domino.
This disc by the former Joe Ely guitar player Ian Moore bears little resemblance (other than the high octane quality) to the music he made with Ely, and owes much more to the Beatles and the psychedelic movement. You are still able to discern his underlying feel of the blues. This is a long leap, but it is a very positive broad step out. Moore either wrote or co-wrote ten of the 11 songs on the disc, and there are no weak ones; nor do they fall into any repetitiveness or follow any formula.
