Reports Pitchfork via Rolling Stone:
According to a report on Rolling Stone’s Rock & Roll Daily blog, Moretti’s side project is called Little Joy and features the talents of Rodrigo Amarante (Los Hermanos) and Binki Shapiro [EDITOR’S NOTE: The project we mentioned a while ago which didn’t have a name], who Rock & Roll Daily reports is Moretti’s girlfriend. The blog calls the group’s sound a combination of “Antonio Carlos Jobim, Vince Guaraldi, and Sixties wall-of-sound girl groups,” and the trio will release their debut album this fall via Rough Trade.
Fraiture has gone a simpler route with the name of his side project, Nickel Eye. His debut under the name is titled The Time of the Assassins. Nick Zinner of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Regina Spektor guest on the project.
