lcd soundsystem release ‘the
london
sessions’
on november 9th 2010 through dfa/virgin records, available
exclusively on iTunes through december 6th.

 
 the london sessions is a unique ‘john peel
session style’ 9 trk encapsulation of one of today’s most acclaimed acts in
perhaps their rawest and most original recordings to date.

 

the session itself was recorded in one day at the pool/miloco studios in south
london on june 29th 2010, in the week following
this year’s triumphant glastonbury
performance.  it was locked in order to record tracks for dissemination
across the globe through the medium of contemporary rock radio; fans of lcd
soundsystem will know that radio sessions are something that have never been a
staple of the band’s career thus far because of the belief in the necessity to
maintain the highest quality of all sonic recordings released into the ether.

 
 the set which spans the breadth of their career to date, perfectly
captures the intuitive live evolvement of lcd as a band. here nothing is
replicated with computers, everything instead is recreated in real time,
tougher, looser and less clinically. It features tracks from all of their studio
albums to date, as well as long lost b-side classic ‘yr city’s a sucker’ and is
a must for any fan of the band. the tracks were subsequently mixed by james murphy in nyc at dfa’s plantain studio &
mastered by his longtime cohort bob weston in chicago.

 
 the tracklist is as follows:
 

 us v them
 all I want
 drunk girls
 get innocuous
 daft punk is playing at my house
 all my friends
 pow pow
 I can change
 yr city’s a sucker

 
 since the release of ‘this is
happening’
, the speculation has continued to build that this is the final
lcd album.
