LCD Soundsystem “Dance Yrself Clean”

I’m ages behind but I just started getting into LCD Soundsystem. It was among a vast number of bands that my good friend Ted tried to impose on my years ago. I suppose along with the National, these groups were for a significantly more mature palette than when he tried on me the first go.

I had the opportunity to see James Murphy, the heart of LCD, earlier this year and had a complete flop of a time. He was in Toronto promoting his documentary Shut Up and Play the Hits  and I could tell his heart wasn’t in it. He didn’t want to be there. Not once did he acknowledge the audience, it was kind of a let down.

Good to hear though a few months later in Washington State he played a super set. Perhaps moods were different for all.

Anyways, I digress, “Dance Yrself Clean” is fun as hell and I can’t get enough of its slow burn excitement.

Make Your Exit

I first heard this group do a cover of Zeus’ “River by the Garden.”

For the longest time, I thought it was just a series done by Southern Souls, but they’re actually a group.

All their Youtube clips aren’t very polished or perfect by any means, but it’s kind of charming to see that they’re just making music in public spaces. It’s a warm feeling I got seeing a little barber shop group called Spank in Greenwich Village.
