(PG-13: Language) “And all the hits are saying the same thing. There’s only tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight, and life is finite. But sh*t, it feels like forever.” Funny, catchy, and tired of all of this. LCD Soundsystem picks up right where it left off.
Alessandro Grespan posted this video back in 2011, which he created by perfectly timing the playback of LCD Soundsystem’s New York I Love You, But You’re Bringing Me Down, along with Miles Davis’ improv performance from Louis Malle’s 1958 film Elevator to the Gallows.
Gang of Youths covers LCD Soundsystem’s 2007 track All My Friends with incredible finesse, with a brilliantly gradual escalation from a quiet and mellow start to an explosive wall of sound by the end. We’re not sure they beat the original, but they came damned close.
