LCD Soundsystem – Call The Police (2017)


LCD Soundsystem have returned in the last week with ‘Call the Police’, a seven-minute ode to the sounds of David Bowie and U2. This is a welcome step off the dancefloor from my perspective. However, Mr James Murphy is evidently upset about something: “Well, there’s a full-blown rebellion but you’re easy to confuse/ By triggered kids and fakers and some questionable views,” he sings. The song is the lead single from the band’s upcoming new album – date and name TBC. Have a great week.

LCD Soundsystem – All I Want (2010)


LCD Soundsystem

Following the theme of tributes this week, on their/his third and final album This Is Happening, LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy features the Bowie love-in ‘All I Want’. With the familiar sounds of a motorik beat and sliding guitars, Murphy intentionally references Bowie’s Berlin years, which had themselves seen producer Brian Eno develop themes from his own meisterwerk Here Come The Warm Jets. Heroes are not “just for one day”.
