can you post mediafire links here

I was kind of horrified at the start but it won me over.

^^^

well, maybe not horrified, but it didn't have the wow factor of hearing anything off sound of silver for the first time. seems pretty clear that this is going to be an outlier though, still looking forward to the whole record.

This song is great, you are all mad.

Matt DC, Friday, 26 March 2010 17:27 (4 years ago) Permalink

This is clearly the joke track that appears 2/3rds of the way through the album though.

Matt DC, Friday, 26 March 2010 17:29 (4 years ago) Permalink

this is the lead single though unfortunately

nakhchivan, Friday, 26 March 2010 17:34 (4 years ago) Permalink

which means 0 in 2010

congratulations (n/a), Friday, 26 March 2010 17:40 (4 years ago) Permalink

could mean that there is more of this stuff

nakhchivan, Friday, 26 March 2010 17:46 (4 years ago) Permalink

studio clips may or may not reveal what the rest of the record sounds like?

via their youtube channel

i have to imagine that they'll play at least a few (if not a bunch) of new songs at coachella in a few weeks

Violent (J0rdan S.), Friday, 26 March 2010 20:50 (4 years ago) Permalink

This is sorta the same way I felt about the first single from the last lp - "North American Scum" to me was horrible, and I thought 'what the F is this crap' for a first single. Then heard the album and thought it was great. But still didn't care too much for that song though.

cuz it sounds like lumpen britpop with beered-up football chanting? completely completely sucks, even the so-called groove is tedious

― لوووووووووووووووووووول (lex pretend), Friday, 26 March 2010 12:42 (Yesterday)

agree with this after hearing drunk girls and that AWFUL pow pow song. horrible macho shouting with some background sneering. hope the rest of the album isn't like this.

"Drunk Girls" sounds tossed-off, formulaic LCD by numbers...He's done this style before as others have pointed out

curmudgeon, Saturday, 27 March 2010 14:26 (4 years ago) Permalink

cue nme 'rock is back' lcd cover story. music is bullshit

jams murphy is in the gutter

BIG HOOS aka the steendriver, Saturday, 27 March 2010 15:16 (4 years ago) Permalink

i remember it were all beats around here

BIG HOOS aka the steendriver, Saturday, 27 March 2010 15:16 (4 years ago) Permalink

Anyone would think they'd turned into Cold Chisel or Rose Tattoo.

Doran, Saturday, 27 March 2010 16:03 (4 years ago) Permalink

i thought about "it were all the field around here" but eh

BIG HOOS aka the steendriver, Saturday, 27 March 2010 16:05 (4 years ago) Permalink

It were all Fields of the Nephelim round here...

Doran, Saturday, 27 March 2010 16:08 (4 years ago) Permalink

haha there's always been a strong rose tattoo element to lcd.

i've never really liked the monotone barky side of LCD so was hoping the new stuff would be more emotional disco like 'someone great', 4533 and 'all my friends'. or even the bouncy pop of 'yeah' and the deceptacon remix. the two i've heard just seem more of the usual dry detached plodstomp, with added jockrock. looking forward to hearing 'dance yourself clean' though - i've never been the biggest fan but when they're good, they're awesome

NI, Saturday, 27 March 2010 17:27 (4 years ago) Permalink

is this gonna leak before he comes up with a name? considering how many people seem to have heard it...

iatee, Saturday, 27 March 2010 18:40 (4 years ago) Permalink

This is Happening.

Hah awesome, love the title/art. Just trying to think what the cover reminds me of...some early-to-mid 80s early CD art by an established artist, no?

Davek (davek_00), Tuesday, 30 March 2010 15:57 (4 years ago) Permalink

haha what a terrible corporate buzztitle and lame franz-ferdinand-inspired cover art

j0rdslovesomedude (acoleuthic), Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:00 (4 years ago) Permalink

what a disaster for lcd

max, Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:06 (4 years ago) Permalink

could they be any more corporate

max, Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:07 (4 years ago) Permalink

i mean hes wearing a suit

max, Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:07 (4 years ago) Permalink

RIP indie

max, Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:07 (4 years ago) Permalink

can't believe jams sold out and went w/ an unironic corporate buzztitle and decided to be inspired by franz ferinand

iatee, Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:07 (4 years ago) Permalink

corporate buzztitle

Mr. Que, Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:08 (4 years ago) Permalink

oh good, there's enough zinging going on here to cover me too

good looking out, guys! ^_^

STAY ALIVE USING EQUIPMENT (HI DERE), Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:08 (4 years ago) Permalink

looks like "this" isnt happening at all, unless "this" is "a corporate buzztitle"

max, Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:08 (4 years ago) Permalink

D'oh for being the only person who likes the cover. It's no New Amerykah pt 2, but I think it's dapper.

ILM cynicism strikes again!

Davek (davek_00), Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:12 (4 years ago) Permalink

I like the cover

iatee, Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:12 (4 years ago) Permalink

i would love it, if it werent inspired by franz ferdinand

max, Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:13 (4 years ago) Permalink

^^^remembers when indie wasn't dead

Mr. Que, Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:13 (4 years ago) Permalink

reminds me a lot of lodger : david bowie.

mark e, Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:13 (4 years ago) Permalink

i believe that was inspired by franz ferdinand as well

max, Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:14 (4 years ago) Permalink

seriously lj, do you sometimes sit there and think to yourself "let's see, what is the most speciously infuriating thing I could write to make my fellow posters sprain their eyeballs from reflexive rolling" before you post?

STAY ALIVE USING EQUIPMENT (HI DERE), Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:14 (4 years ago) Permalink

hahaha at Bowie travelling forward in time and being inspired by Franz.

Davek (davek_00), Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:15 (4 years ago) Permalink

franz ferdinand was born way the fuck before bowie

egregious apostrophising (schlump), Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:16 (4 years ago) Permalink

Also was about to say it reminded me of Low onwards Bowie, later period Roxy Music and suited-and-booted New Pop.

Davek (davek_00), Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:16 (4 years ago) Permalink

and his death inspired bowie's nazi period

iatee, Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:17 (4 years ago) Permalink

can't believe LCD is inspired by Beck

Mr. Que, Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:17 (4 years ago) Permalink

the vocal harmonies are great, definitely a lodger thing going on

but yeah i'm put off that the shout is "drunk girls" but that probably doesn't matter

goole, Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:17 (4 years ago) Permalink

the thing is, a certain proportion of girls at any given time are in fact drunk, so ... it's not offensive

congratulations (n/a), Tuesday, 30 March 2010 16:19 (4 years ago) Permalink

how many photos will be subjected to tilted chiaroscuro shops with 'corporate buzztitle' annotations in the coming months
