UK electronic outfit Hot Chip will be playing a MySpace Music Secret Show in New York City on Friday, February 5 for their MySpace friends and fans in celebration of the release of their upcoming full-length album titled One Life Stand (Feb. 9, Astralwerks). Philadelphia-based DFA rock quintet Free Energy will open the performance. Doors for this all-ages event will open at 7 p.m. and entry will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis.

Hot Chip is back with their stunning fourth studio album One Life Stand, which is being released on February 9 on Astralwerks Records. The album sees a proliferation of influences as diverse as the burgeoning UK funky scene to soul music, modern R&B, Northern Soul, Gospel, Golden Age Electronica, House, the sounds of Arthur Russell, Prince and Theo Parish. These influences all sit effortlessly alongside the band’s signature pop aesthetics, wild electronics, off kilter beats and intoxicating musical experimentation in a way that only Hot Chip can execute.

From the songs “Free Energy” to “Dark Trance,” Philadephia rock band Free Energy has been hinting at their forthcoming debut full-length album since the Spring of 2009. As an early treat, the band released a digital EP in September featuring two album tracks and a B-side, “Something In Common.” Produced by James Murphy, Free Energy’s debut full-length album, Stuck On Nothing, will be released on Astralwerks/DFA Records.
