LCD Soundsystem – Throw (iTunes Bonus Track)

By Will Oliver, May 20th 2010 — with 11 comments Covers MP3

For the iTunes release of LCD Soundsystem’s latest album, This Is Happening, LCD Soundsystem covered Paperclip People’s “Throw” as a itunes exclusive bonus track. Paperclip People is Carl Craig, a producer/dj who has a heavy hand in the Detroit underground techno/dance scene. The original version of “Throw” is pretty close to a perfect 15 minute long electronic jam.

James Murphy spices the song up with crunchy bass, shuffling drums, hypnotizing synth attacks, and plenty of blissful effects. When he finally speaks, lets just say he hits some of his highest notes to date. This is as worthy a cover as any. A must have for any fans of electronic/dance music. Give it a try:

    Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. The chances of me buying an entire download for one track (iTunes will not sell the track separately) were nil.

    I’ve already got the original … so CC already got his money!
