LCD Soundsystem – “Live Alone”
Before LCD Soundsystem bid the world farewell in Madison Square Garden two weekends ago, James Murphy and co. took one last stop by the recording studio to cover Franz Ferdinand’s “Live Alone”. This track will be featured on the upcoming, appropriately titled album Covers, consisting of, along with LCD Soundsystem’s contribution, Franz Ferdinand covers from Peaches and The Magnetic Field’s Stephin Merritt. Pretty cool, I guess we can call this the last track ever produced by the legendary dance-rock group.
In the process of writing this, I noticed we did nothing here at Doobie Radio to commemorate the retirement of LCD Soundsystem. Like I mentioned, they played their last show EVER on April 2nd at Madison Square Garden, which, I should note, sold out almost immediately after tickets went on sale. Check out photos from the show, and, if you’re into LCD Soundsystem the way Pitchfork is, a vastly dense, chronologically cataloged song-by-song breakdown of every track ever recorded by the band iViva la LCD Soundsystem!
