Inmiddels zijn er ook al 2 nummers van het nieuwe album vrijgegeven:quote:hello humans. this is just a note to say that we're done with the record. like, totally done with the music and mixing. just some art stuff to finish, but it's been mastered already and the lacquers are winging their way to the pressing plant (which is, i think, where they'll make the mothers and stampers, etc.). i've been wrangling the fastest route between final mix and record release for the past few weeks so that there isn't such a lag, and i think it'll be soon. 6 weeks is the very fastest, i think, but it will likely be longer than that. just trying to get all the ducks in a row so that there's someone with a catcher's mitt waiting at each stage. we mixed the last song last wednesday, and korey ran to (a national overnight carrier) to get it to bob weston over at Chicago Mastering Service for the next morning. then we took off to play sasquatch in washington, and now i'm home proofreading lyrics and credits and all that crap. sorry it took so long, honestly. i didn't think it would, but i, once again, underestimated the distractions inherent in touring and living a "life". this will be the last record at the original DFA Studios, as we're closing that down after the building was sold, so there's a lot to digest for me. i've been there nearly 20 years now, and i wasn't a particularly young man when it opened, so there's that.
anyway, be well, thank you for yr patience (even when it manifested as semi-angry "where the fuck is the RECORD< james!" posts!) and very much looking forward to getting this to you.
Klik hier voor die download.quote:hi everybody. the record comes out tomorrow (well, tonight at midnight wherever you are) and last night at midnight we shared an extra track for the LP called pulse (v.1). it's not precisely part of the record, but it's an addendum (or maybe a codicil?) meant to go after the last track, black screen.
there are a few reasons for this: one, pulse wouldn't fit on the vinyl, so i didn't include it there (i think we'll put together a 12" with the other versions of pulse when there's a moment, but that won't be quick... tour and all.) and two, i really, really like this track.
this track began as a weird and fun synth collaboration between the amazing gavin russom and i on some very weird machines, and wound up developing into something else entirely, with pat and al and nancy, and korey playing congas. there was even more development which isn't included in this version, but that's for future iterations. tyler was in berlin, unfortunately. but there will be other versions.
it's a mix that we did a long time ago after the first session of the track, and it's grown on me as a track to listen to after the LP. it's super wonky, and i really didn't want to square the human-ness off of it, but just let it be what it is. so you don't have to tell me that it sounds super fucked up. i know.
anyway, we figured the best thing to do was just give it away for free. sure, you can still get it on various platforms, and it'll be on the streaming service things, but you can also just go to the lcd homepage and get it for free.
and there you have it.
Ik vind het niet waanzinnig maar er staan wel waanzinnige nummers op.quote:

Nooit geweten trouwens dat je bij LCD Soundsystem ook crowdsurfers kon hebben. En tijdens Movement werd het (vooraan in ieder geval) wel een beetje punky met het publiek wat echt alle kanten opging. Op basis van het enige eerdere concert dat ik van ze heb meegemaakt had ik dat niet verwacht. Wel gaaf.
