Via OneThirtyBPM, you can listen to two new LCD Soundsystem songs from their new album, This Is Happening. For those of you who weren’t too favorable with “Drunk Girls”, these new songs will restore your faith in the album.
First is the near nine minute album opener Dance Yrself Clean, and second is I Can Change.
Dance Yrself Clean starts out slow, gradually building itself up with hints of electronic sounds. It kicks off into full LCD Soundsystem glory at the three minute mark fully forming into a glorious jam. One of my readers, Jah, commented below that it’s basic riff and rhythm is probably taken from The Pool’s Jamaica Running. You can be the judge of that by listening here.
Change” displays Murphy’s true singing voice, displaying some nice vocals. The track is a sincere attempt to regain what he once had, something we can all relate to. I use this word a lot, but “I Can Change” is a beauty.
Drunk Girls is fun and all, but this is the real LCD Soundsystem. You can say I’m excited for the rest of the album.
