The LCD Soundsystem Post (For those of you who think we're done, we're like, "no.")


A few days ago I said I'd dedicate a whole new post to LCD Soundsystem. Well, the time has come.

I know there's not much left to be said about James Murphy or his new album, Sound of Silver, but I would be remiss if I neglected to create this post. Truly great albums don't come around very often anymore. We bounce from band to band, album to album, song to song so quickly now; it's hard to stay interested in any one thing for a reasonable amount of time. I hope you don't read this and think "look at this hypocritical douchebag." I know that blogs like this one fuel that approach to music, and part of me actually feels a bit of remorse. Maybe.

Anyways...

I told you that the two tracks at the core of the album, "Someone Great" and "All My Friends," were two of my favorites of the year. I don't think you will find better back to back tracks on any album this year. I'm having a hard time thinking of any recent album with back to back tracks that good. Maybe Sonic Youth's "Incinerate" and "Do You Believe in Rapture," but even then...

Seeing as there really is nothing left to say about the album, I'll just try to give you a few b-sides you haven't heard before.

This first one, "Hippie Priest Bum Out," came out as a b-side to the "North American Scum" single.



LCD Soundsystem- Hippie Priest Bum Out

The next track, "Freak Out," was a b-side to the "All My Friends" single.

This last one is special; it's a cover of Joy Division's "No Love Lost" that came out as a b-side to a limited version of the "All My Friends" single. Maybe a concert-only version? I'm not really sure... Either way, check it out.

I also have a lot of LCD remixes that came out as b-sides to this and that if anyone is interested. Not exactly my cup of tea, but I'll gladly throw them up if enough of you want them.

Enjoy.

I just heard the song you posted up and it brought tears to my eyes reminiscing in memories 12 years ago when I myself once had a band as well..
We played in the basement/garage, we performed in talent shows/pubs, we did everything right, we got a record deal with some small time corp, but now I still remain a plumber in misery. Hey ya'll, pursue your dream, dont let it fall out! Make your dream come through because only you can make it true :)
