Holy Ghost

Synth pop duo Holy Ghost! will return with their sophomore album, Dynamics, on September 10 via DFA, and they've just released an outtake from the album sessions, "Teenagers in Heat," which was co-produced by DFA co-founder/LCD Soundsystem main man James Murphy. The song won't appear on the new album but it will be released as a 7" single and digitally. Download it above or stream it, along with the video for a track that will appear on the album, "Dumb Disco Ideas," below. Also below is the tracklist, and that's the album art above.

This band should have named themselves Ghost Shit!

James Murphy's DJ set at the DFA party was pure shit. Sad to see one of the great musical minds of the last decade turn into the fat, lazy, slob that he has become.

250 is correct. Only DFA bands that you kids should be listening to are Black Dice and the Rapture.

Factory Floor is pretty badass as well. I can't wait to hear their new album.

Almost anything on DFA is better than Holy Ghost. Ok, their very first single "Hold On" was very good but the rest is pure garbage. They're trying too hard to be a stylish catchy dance pop band from NYC.

I liked the song they did with Michael McDonald - that was them right? - but largely because of Michael McDonald's involvement, he can croon.

No one has sufficiently explained to me why James Murphy is such a big fuckin deal. He had a few good songs - why the adulation?

^ It's because James Murphy is a hummus eating man of epic proportions. He is at Mamouns a minimum of 3 times per week.

World to James Murphy: Go the fuck away you overrated, minimally talented, cant sing and cant play an instrument "musician"

430 : Murphy made Brooklyn cool. He moved to bk in 1995, long before you. His influence is still being felt around the world. I was Japan a few months ago and young cool kids there were dancing to LCD. Same thing in France. His stuff and sound has staying power. He earned his applause. You're so jealous and petty that it's cute.

'trying too hard to be a stylish catchy dance pop band from NYC.' -sums up the dfa brand

10:44, I wish I was next to you in public and heard you say something like that. It would give me no greater pleasure after that to then haul off and punch you in the face or throw up on you. The stupidity you possess knows no bounds.

The murph produced tune is drek but I kinda like the other one with the time lapse video

I don't understand all the James Murphy hate. I would have to agree with 4:04 that since those first singles, this band has been going down hill.

952am b/c james said he would retire from lcd and kinda do whatever he wants to do which is ok but he keeps cashing $$$ doing any dj gigs offered to him...

Wouldn't you though? It's a stretch to say that his DJ persona damages the reputation of the band. And even though they did MSG and all that, I don't imagine James to be swimming in enough cash that he never has to work again.

I just can't crack your code
One day you screaming you love me loud
The next day you're so cold

1:04 resorts to violence against anyone who has a different opinion. Quit wasting your life worrying about other people. Grow up kiddo.

Posted by Anonymous | July 10, 2013 12:02 PM

12:02 is obviously 10:44. Ironic that you lecture someone else on wasting their time worrying about other people when you are doing just that.

Sorry you dolt, you do deserve a smack for that stupid comment earlier.

Well 1:04, he's a violent man a very violent and jealous man
Now 1044 and 1202 have to leave this town they got to leave while they still can

1:04 is mad because he has made no impact in life and James Murphy has made an impact. Waaaa. Listen kiddo: move on. Just move on.

10:44- Brooklyn was a cool place to live LONG before James Murphy moves there. Your post is laughable.

Extra! Extra!: Holy Ghosts! 'Wait & See" video was definitely one of our favourite videos of the year, the whole dad thing was a stroke of genius.

First Daft Punk's amazing new album becomes available for streaming and now we have the latest single from Holy Ghost! It's a good week for dance music.
