News Songs // LCD Soundsystem

A couple of new LCD Soundsystem songs have been released over the last couple of days. The first, called Oh You (Christmas Blues), is the only song credited to LCD Soundsystem off the soundtrack for the upcoming film Greenberg. James Murphy credits himself for the rest of the album, apart from a couple of 70's tunes. Following that theme, the Oh You (Christmas Blues) sounds nothing like the band it comes from, instead sounding more like a classic rock song from way-back-when. It is still awesome, in a very laid back way.

Listen to the song here:

The second song is not from the Greenberg OST, but also not from the upcoming as-yet-unnamed third LCD album, released May 17th in the UK. As posted on the DFA website, the song is part of the current Yves Saint Laurent fashion show. This sounds more typically like Murphy's band, featuring sparse piano over an analogue synth rythm. Overall, however, it is a little boring and repetitive, which I suppose does suit models catwalking rather well.
