At the end of last week, a friend of old waver uncovered a video that quickly made the rounds among the indie blog elite. Even though many of you have probably already seen it, what’s the harm in watching it again, right?
LCD Soundsystem has just hit the road for the second leg of a tour to support the truly wonderful This Is Happening. The album is an emotionally rich and sonically brilliant bit of electropop, with a terrific closer in the hypnotic jam “Home.”
Director Rick Darge took it upon himself to create a video for the song, featuring the hi-fi robotic creation of a lonely geriatric.
The action follows the young robot’s coming of age journey, full throttle fall from grace, and prodigal-son-style return. The video isn’t sanctioned by the band or the DFA label, but I’m guessing James Murphy would approve.
