LCD Soundsystem’s New Album Is Finally Finished, According To Frontman James Murphy

first_imgOn Friday, May 26th, LCD Soundsystem delivered a headlining performance on the first night of Sasquatch! Music Festival at the legendary Gorge Amphitheatre in George, WA. During their set–a replacement for Frank Ocean‘s cancelled performance–frontman James Murphy candidly shared some news that fans of the band have been eagerly awaiting since their reunion in 2016. LCD Soundsystem’s new album is “finally done, feel like we knocked it out of the park on this one.”The album–the group’s first since their 2010 pre-breakup LP This Is Happening–will feature the two songs the band released earlier this month, “Call The Police” and “American Dream,” as well as “Tonight” (premiered during their 5-night, venue-opening run at Brooklyn Steel last month) and several more as-of-yet unheard tracks. The band recently appeared on Saturday Night Live, where they debuted “American Dream” and “Call The Police” to the masses unable to attend the Brooklyn Steel shows (where photos and videos were explicitly prohibited by the band). You can get excited for LCD Soundsystem’s long-awaited new album by watching video of the Brooklyn-based band perform “Call the Police” and “American Dream” on Saturday Night Live below:“Call The Police”“American Dream”[h/t – Pitchfork]last_img read more

The property market is performing strongly and we welcome this new opportunity to deliver our clients the same outcomes (they would have achieved).”Stuart McCrea of Place Estate Agency in Coorparoo said the industry could work around the safety measures introduced to protect buyers and sellers from coronavirus.“The use of video walk-throughs, all these things, allow people to bid with confidence.

Wednesday night we sold four from five properties and we have some 28 auctions on the board to be auctioned in coming weeks,” he said. Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced on Tuesday that all inroom auctions and group open homes would cease from midnight Wednesday, leading the industry to take the events fully digital, with bidding done online or over the phone. This week was on course to be the biggest of the year for auctions, with Brisbane volumes up 52.2 per cent, compared with the same time last year, with 172 homes listed to go under the hammer, according to the CoreLogic Auction Market Preview.“After the weekend, we should have a better idea on how this is going to impact the auction market going forward,” a CoreLogic spokesperson said.
