LCD Soundsystem’s new album THIS IS HAPPENING was leaked yesterday. Quelle surprise. So LCD threw the tracks up on their site for you to stream for free.
While I was all anti-Lars Ulrich during the Metallica v. Napster days, LCD frontman James Murphy actually said something that made me feel bad about the whole leak issue. “We spent two years making this record and we want to put it out when we want to put it out. I don’t care about money,” said Murphy. Valid point. But what’s done is done — the album is great, they’re going to rock Coachella hard, and the world will keep spinning round.
Now go listen.
