LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy playing in new band
LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy has revealed that he is involved in a new band who are set to release material on his label, DFA.

Murphy told NME.COM that the collective, featuring LCD cohort Pat Maloney plus former Hockey Night members Paul Sprangers and Scott Wells, haven't decided on a name yet.

"There's this rock band arguing about what name they are," Murphy told NME.COM. "They're from Minneapolis.

"We've gone back and forth for months, there's no way to say [what the band name is]. Pat and I are the drummer and the bass player [respectively]."

Murphy said he expected to release material by the new collective next year.

According to his spokesperson Murphy is not officially a core member of the band, although he produces and contributes bass.

Meanwhile, Murphy has curated a night as part of the This Is London season at the London Matter venue set for Friday night (October 24), featuring fellow DFA acts DJ-ing.
