LCD Soundsystem returned to Brooklyn Steel last night to kick off a seven-show run in New York City. Taking the sold-out crowd through a two-hour show of classic cuts and new tracks, LCD Soundsystem seems to be making one thing clear: they’re here to play and here to stay.
With the show time listed as 8 p.m., veteran disco rocker James Murphy and crew took the stage at 9:30 p.m., opening with an extended “Us V Them” before powering through “Daft Punk Is Playing At My House” and “I Can Change.”
“Get Innocuous!” and “You Wanted A Hit” came next as the band seemed to settle in and their iconic disco ball splashed the audience with light and color. Then “Tribulations” gave everyone a bit of a breather, before the slow-clap drum beat quickened into a fast and furious “Movement.”
LCD Soundsystem then played “Yeah” and “Someone Great” before concluding the set, expectedly, with “New York, I Love You But You’re Bringing Me Down.” This performance of the bittersweet ballad was especially soulful, with Murphy pushing the vocals and adding a bit of falsetto flair.
For an encore, LCD Soundsystem presented a triptych of songs off the forthcoming album: “Call The Police,” “American Dream” and “Tonight,” the latter of which seemed to dampen the mood in the room. Murphy then chided the audience, saying they weren’t going to leave the stage again before another encore because, “It seems everyone just got their pee break.”
The band then started the slow boil that is “Dance Yrself Clean” before concluding with “All My Friends.” LCD Soundsystem returns to Brooklyn Steel on Saturday for the second of seven shows.
When these shows were announced last week, James Murphy reported that the new album was mixed and mastered and they were finalizing the artwork before announcing a release date. Here’s “Call The Police” off the forthcoming LCD Soundsystem album:
