david-bowie

Earlier this year David Bowie stunned and excited fans by releasing his first studio album in ten years. The Next Day dropped with no warning to immediate critical acclaim and Bowie fans worldwide going a little weak at the knees. Next month sees the release of The Next Day Extra, a three disc special edition of the album loaded with unreleased tracks and fresh reMixes. Included amongst the reMixes is this ten minute epic from DFA and LCD Soundsystem head honcho James Murphy.

Phased layers handclaps create the backing rhythm for this impressive musical journey. Very much a DFA track, yet still retaining a quintessential Bowie-ness, this reMix reminds us of how amazing Bowie songs can be when he is paired with something more electronic and experimental musically. Given it;s length, it;s no sunrise that that tune has room to breather, taking it’s time building it’s Cosmic, New York Disco, vibe. even taking time to side-line into Ashes To Ashes briefly.

LCD Soundsystem’s farewell show.

Well, that’s that then. Saturday night saw the last ever LCD Soundsystem show. A three and a half hour send-off at Madison Square Garden for one of the greatest DancePunk/Indie-Electro/DiscoPunk/Whatever bands to have graced our ears.

Streamed live by Pitchfork, it’s not on YouTube for those that missed it.

Farewell James Murphy and co., you were responsible for some good times, thank you.

LCD Soundsystem Vs. Holy Ghost!

LCDSoundsystem

LCD Soundsystem’s recent single, the first off of their long awaited follow up to ‘Sound Of Silver’, ‘This Is Happening’ has been given a deep synth work out by fellow Ney Yorkers Holy Ghost!.

‘Drunk Girls’ was the epitome of LCD Soundsystem, a raucous slab of garage Electro-Rock. Holy Ghost! keep much of the original flavour but add some deep analog synth bass and effects to the mix. Still just as raucous, just a little more electronic. It’s all good!

Check out the Spike Jonze directed video for the first single from the new album, ‘Drunk Girls’, a  LCD ruckus party track that harks back to ‘Daft Punk Is Playing At My House’:
