New LCD Soundsystem Video: "Drunk Girls"
We realize that this one's probably all over the Internet this afternoon, but hey, doesn't hurt to throw it up here, does it? Listen, the new LCD Soundsystem album, This is Happening, is pretty much the best. If you have to nitpick, though, the single "Drunk Girls" is the weakest song of the bunch. Again, since This is Happening is pretty much the best, "Drunk Girls" is still really great. We just fear for its inevitable future as a frat party anthem where its lyrics will undoubtedly get lost in translation. (What's that? Can't hear you over all that Natty Lite, brah!)
Maybe James Murphy and co. realize this, which is why they throw the SICKEST PANDA FRAT PARTY EVER, PANDA BRAH in the song's video. Looks like a blast. No pandas were harmed in the making of this video (hey look at that, helmed by Spike Jonze!), but slightly overweight, hip 40-year-olds might have been. Dig it.
This is Happening is happening over on LCD's site fo' free, but consider buying it in stores via DFA on May 18.
