DFA does Suicide

L.C.D Soundsystem are back, way back in 1981, with their cover of an Alan Vega song, Bye Bye Bayou. It's a good cover but I wish they'd kept some of the original's yelping. James Murphy is so good at yelping. He sounds like he's just woken up after a long sleep on this.

Hype Machine is full of LCD Soundsytem at the moment between Bye Bye Bayou and the 45:33 remixes but nobody on there is paying much/any attention to Q&A who just released their first 12' on DFA. They describe their sound as "Mr Fingers meets TELEX and Carl Craig at The Hacienda" which is a better description than anything I could come up with. I've been listening to Tumbling Cubes a lot lately and it really grows on you. I feel bad giving away a free download of this because they probably could use the support, you can buy it here for 70p if you really like it.
