New LCD Soundsystem, 'Drunk Girls' and 'Pow Pow'

LCD-Soundsystem

Frontman James Murphy tells Pfork that the song is about “about drunk people and fun things and the fact that all of the boys of the L.A. mansion we recorded at were called ‘the girls’ by our chef. We were the ladies of the mansion.” (Private chefs? L.A. mansions? Life sounds nice for Lady Murphy).

Stereogum is also hosting a track from the record, the punchy, onomatopoeiac “Pow Pow.” But if you can’t wait until May 18 for the full-release, Murphy’s more intimate, less strobe-lit soundtrack for the Ben Stiller life-crisis dramedy Greenberg makes for an excellent stop-gap.
