LCD Soundsystem live are a fearsome, complicated, pretty wonderful thing, as hopefully you’ve found out by yourself by now; they’ve got an iTunes-only thing coming out Tuesday that will, for those who haven’t seen ’em in person yet, come closest to proving it. Recorded in a U.K. studio in one day a week or so after this year’s Glastonbury Festival, The London Sessions “perfectly captures the intuitive live evolvement of lcd as a band,” as they put it. “Here nothing is replicated with computers, everything instead is recreated in real time, tougher, looser and less clinically.” Not that “Daft Punk Is Playing at My House” ever felt particular clinical, but still, great. Tracklist:
us v them
all I want
daft punk is playing at my house
all my friends
I can change
yr city’s a sucker
LCD played here a bunch of times earlier this year and won’t be back anytime soon, alas, but it’s almost top-top season, so expect to hear about This Is Happening a lot again, as well you should.
