seriously though how do you take you coffee?
I don't know if they'll be on the album, but Murph made a song with David Bowie and a song with a relatively popular rapper. If they're not on the LCD album, they'll definitely be released somewhere else later
Two songs on the second disc would make it to the top 5, one of which possibly being my favorite LCD song of all time. Also, the transition from the last song on the first disc to the first song on the second disc may be one of my favorite transitions between LCD songs ever.
James doesn't do everything, no. He has pretty much 100% creative control, but he does get some band members to play certain parts. And when there's a need for more obscure instruments to be played, James has a few people he can call on
>Can LCD ever play beat connection live?
I see no reason at all why they couldn't do it, it's just a matter of if James wants to
>Can James know about /mu/?
Why not? I don't know if he knows about it, but it's a possibility
>What albums has he been playing to death lately?
We've been listening to the new Bowie album a lot in the past few weeks (he got an advance copy for his contributions to the record). We've been listening to a lot of underground/experimental 80s post-punk. A lot of it is international, some stuff I didn't even know existed prior to meeting him.
Cmon man. SoS has some of the best songs LCD ever put out, but it also has some songs that are just "pretty good". TiH is not only great, but also incredibly consistent and cohesive.
>Why not get James Murphy in here!?!
Because he has better stuff to do lol
>What does it take to work with the man?
Honestly, it's a lot of doing what you're told. I've made suggestions to him about places to take a certain song or section, but at the end of the day, it's his vision. So I just do what's asked of me
For the same reason other people said. TiH is much more consistent of an album. SoS could've been one of the best EPs of all time, but instead it's just "shifting through the okay songs to get to the great ones"
1) How is James Murphy in person? Is he a prick, or is he as nice as I think he is?
2) When should the new album be called?
3) What letter does the album title start with? How many words are there?
4) If two guys went to the moon and one of them killed the other with a big rock would that be fucked up or what
I go back quite a bit with Pat. Murph needed someone for the new record who could play certain instruments/parts/etc. Pat knew I could be that guy. I had met Murph in passing a couple times beforehand, but our first studio session was the first time I actually sat down and talked with him in-depth
1. He's nice and humble. Bit of an introvert, but really friendly as long as you're chill with him
2. When should it be called? I don't follow
3. We're still throwing around names for it right now. In normal convo, we just refer to it as LP4 or Four
4. that'd be fucked up m8
Nice satan digits
If what you're saying is true, you're pretty lucky man. I'm a multi-instrumentalist myself, and watching the TiH documentary and with all the machines and equipment that he had, and the general things he did really wanted to make me work with him. Good luck.
Oh gotcha. Yeah, we're aiming to get the album finished before the end of the month. As for when it comes out, I'm not sure. I can say, however, that everyone in the band is in agreeance that a surprise release is not the way to go. We've been floating around the idea of releasing it in April or May, but James wants the release date to be public info at least two months before the actual release itself
how are you involved in making the record if you don't know the signal chain?
sorry but I have to call bullshit
james fucking loves explaining his gear
here's another one for you not to get: what floor of the building is the studio on?
