If you’re playing SNL, you’ve gotta have something to play. Luckily for LCD Soundsystem, the musical guests this weekend, they’ve got the goods. The band, defunct for all of five seconds, played a handful of new songs at their recent Brooklyn residency, but didn’t allow anyone to film or record them so they could remain under total secrecy. Today, James Murphy & Co. have relinquished some control and are offering up two new tracks at midnight wherever you are (lucky you, Australia). The first is “Call the Police” and BBC Radio 1 already has it. Were you expecting lo-fi power punk? Are you also clairvoyant? Pat yrself on the back. According to Murphy, that long-awaited album that wasn’t supposed to happen is nearing completion, but with this band, who ever knows what to believe.
