LCD Soundsystem replace Frank Ocean at Sasquatch +++ new songs & SNL teasers are out
So LCD Soundsystem‘s two new songs — the rock-ish “Call the Police” and their ennui prom theme “American Dream” — are officially out in every part of Planet Earth (at least the parts with internet). They’re both pretty good and, if you haven’t listened yet, you can do so below. What do you think?
The band will be playing at least one of those, probably, on this weekend’s Saturday Night Live. After releasing that fun montage promo set to LCD’s “Dance Yrself Clean,” SNL has shared a few more traditional promos with host Chris Pine cracking a few jokes with James Murphy and Keenan Thompson. Best bit: when Chris Pine refers to Murphy as “Mr. Soundsystem.” Watch those below.
In other news, LCD Soundsystem were just added to the 2017 Sasquatch lineup. They replace Frank Ocean as opening night (5/26) headliner. (Frank dropped off “due to production delays beyond his control.”) They’re promising non-festival dates, still TBA, but check out the new Sasquatch poster and a list of updated LCD dates, below.
