I’ve got good news, better news, and not so good news.
The good: LCD Soundsystem will be bringing their talents to Florida in support of their upcoming album, American Dream. While they played almost every festival on the planet last year and continue to tour feverishly this year, including a 5 shows at Brooklyn’s newest music venue just last week, they mostly avoid Florida. What else is new? They did make a quick appearance at Miami’s III Points Festival last October, and will be making the trek back to Miami again this fall! See the bad for more info….
The better: LCD Soundsystem formally announced the new album they have been teasing for about a year. Titled, American Dream, the album will be released September 1st via Columbia/ DFA records. James Murphy, the perfectionist, wanted to be able to release the album both digitally and on vinyl at the same time. That takes a lot of time because of backlogged vinyl productions.
01. “oh baby”
02 “other voices”
03. “i used to”
04. “change yr mind”
05. “how do you sleep?”
07. “call the police”
08. “american dream”
09. “emotional haircut”
10. “black screen”
The bad: While LCD Soundsystem was nice enough to include Florida on their upcoming tour, the closest they will be coming is Miami. It’s not too far to see a legendary band who has never played Tampa, ever. Well, Special Disco Version played a 2009 show in Tampa, which consisted of just James Murphy and Pat Mahoney of LCD Soundsystem and they’ve played Orlando once. That’s still not Tampa, and thus you will probably have to travel if you ever want to see them live.
