James Murphy’s LCD Soundsystem are back with a couple of brand new songs, ‘American Dream’ and ‘Call The Police’. Both cuts were debuted at the band’s residency at New York’s Brooklyn Steel in April. Their first new material since 2015’s ‘Christmas Will Break Your Heart’, they are set to feature on their forthcoming new long-player, pencilled in for an end of year release on Columbia.
The exuberant, Joy Division-inflected ‘Call The Police’ is built around a battered arsenal of chugging, motorik drums and chainsaw guitars. The more subdued ‘American Dream’ saunters along on a bed of xylophones, ticking drum machine and creamy, ballooning synths.
Be be sure to keep an eye out for more details of the new LCD Soundsystem album and shows.
