I imagine that you just had the same insane, heart-in-mouth, “ZOMG-CHRISTMAS-HAS-COME-EARLY-WITH-JAMES-MURPHY-DRESSED-AS-A-HAGGARD-LOOKING-TRAMPY-SANTA” moment that I had when I first saw there was a new LCD Soundsystem video up for grabs. Sadly, James Murphy is not resurrecting his old project. What we have here is a newly directed video for the band’s cover of Franz Ferdinand’s “Live Alone”, released on Franz’s Covers EP last Record Store Day. The video is very fitting for LCD really – montage footage of New York mixed in with swirling multicolours and flashing wires and electronics. And the track ain’t half bad, either.
