LCD Soundsystem ‘Bye Bye Bayou’ (DFA Records)

It’s always, or rather generally, something to get excited about when a new LCD Soundsystem record emerges from the ether. If you’re a regular reader/viewer/listener of Heads Down, you’ll realise I have the occasional predilection for twisted or ethereal pop- this is one of those records (WARNING: if you’re only here for the discoid underground business look away now).

Apparently ‘Bye Bye Bayou’ is a cover of a Alan Vega (Suicide) song from his 1981 debut album. A solid electroid groove underpins proceedings, while out-of-time percussion clatters, toms pop and delays freak the soundscape. It’s pretty noisy and out-there without ever getting unruly (the definition of DFA if I ever wrote one).

Not entirely sure what James Murphy’s banging on about, but they sure sound like they’re twisting those knobs with a white mans’ overbite… It’s pretty rad as usual. This isn’t going to be on the new album (by the way) so check it out- You heard it here first.
