First off, RIP Jerry Fuchs. I was saddened to hear of his tragic passing yesterday.
Second, LCD Soundsystem has decided to give away this new tune for free. “Bye Bye Bayou” is the first new music from LCD Soundsystem since the release of Sound of Silver, and the track is a cover of an Alan Vega song from his 1981 debut album. You can pick it up on vinyl right here. LCD’s upcoming third album will be released in March 2010.
Third, there's an LCD Soundsystem tribute band playing in Austin on Friday. They're called All My Friends, and they will be playing at Beauty Bar along with Prince Klassen.
