LCD Soundsystem,
Call the Cops and American Dream

Been anxious for new material ever since Christmas Will Break Your Heart (a brilliant return, dripping with wintery dejection) dropped in 2015.

Never expected the new tracks to actually surpass my expectations, but these are great.
I am especially loving American Dream. The synthesizers are superb, full of this wonderful, melancholic longing. And James Murphy's vocals sounds so painfully weary, especially toward the end as the synths grow in intensity and swallow his voice.

Man oh man I am so happy about this.
Cannot wait for the new record!

About those synths. Have a listen to this from about 0.44.


Despite this, I am pleased that both tracks are at least reasonable, even if they don't blow me away (Call The Police sounds a bit like U2 trying to re-write All My Friends). There's always the expectation that these 'returns' will be amazing, but often they aren't. 7.5 out of 10 for me.


EDIT: The tracks first appeared on Spotify & download sites but I've just noticed they are on Youtube as well. For anyone who hasn't heard them:

Call The Police at times, especially at the beginning, sounds like Wayne Coyne of Flaming Lips singing a cover version Procession by New Order.


But yeah, i liked both songs and would play them again i think.

Been listening to the remaster/re-release of Leftism by Leftfield ahead of their shows at Brixton Academy this weekend - mostly been listening to the new remixes rather than the original album: like most remix albums, its a bit hit and miss, but I'm really liking Skream's remix of Open Up.

And here it is. Would I trade it for the original? Nope. Would I dance to it? Yep.
Skream remixed The Chemical Brothers' Sometimes I Feel So Deserted in 2015 and he did a good job but, by the end I thought there would somehow be more to it. I think I feel the same about this.

Eh, don't knock it, I used to quite like this song back in the day 2005. Not the most innovative musically but I did like the lyrics and the mood and melody.



"The way you cheat
The way you lie
The way you want me to die
Over this
Over this
Over this town"

Reminds of good times May bank holiday 1991 just after Electronic's first album was released and driving up to Blackpool for the weekend with my brother and a mate and looking forward to getting pissed (Guardian readers would hate that) Think it was actually the songs off 'Electronic' i had taped off Radio 1 a few nights before and the actual album was released a few days later....Anyway, a great piss up weekend n lots of working class fun in Blackpool (sorry,chin stroking Guardian readers)

10 interesting facts about the Spice Girls
1 Stop was the first Spice Girls single not to reach Number One. Stop Stopped at Number 2, putting a Stop to their run of number ones.
2. Emma was the last to join the group. She became known as Baby and in a sense was the Baby, as she was the last to join the group.
3. Two of the girls were called Melanie, or Mel for short. To avoid confusion, they used the names Mel B and Mel C, which are short forms for their surnames. C is then the third abbreviation I have used in my 10 interesting facts about the Spice Girls.
4. Geri's full name is Geraldine, but she shortened it to Geri, the short form, for short. Geri is then the fourth abbreviation I have used in my 10 interesting facts about the Spice Girls. It has nothing to do with cartoon mouse Jerry, but Geri is probably aware of the fellow.
5. In 1996, Sun readers (so it must be true) voted Geri 'favurite Spice, for having a great personality - or two of them!' This is a jocular reference to tits, which are popular with the paper's buyers. Unforunately, Geri's triumph was short-lived, as 6 months later they voted her 'most annoying Spice', with no reference to either tit. Fickle!
6. Three of the Spice Girls reformed last year as Gem: Geri, Emma and Mel. 'Gem' is then the fifth abbreviation I have used in my 10 interesting facts about the Spice Girls.
7. All the girls have a favourite colour, pet and holiday resort, just like everyone else.
8. Wannabe is the girls' best known video, but Spice Up Your Life was the most expensive, Too Much had the most guest appearances and Say You Will Be There remains most condusive to shooting one's wad over. I checked,
9. When Geri left the group in 98, they sang 'Goodbye'. Goodbye is an English expression when someone leaves a group, and discerning fans tapped a subliminal message to Geri, who left the group in 98.
10. That is the end of my 10 interesting facts about the Spice Girls. I hope you enjoyed them.
