If you’re carefully tracking all things LCD Soundsystem these days, you know that just this morning two more songs joined the list of pre-release leaks from This Is Happening. If you’re really up on it, you’ll notice that the final tracklist for the album doesn’t include “Love In L.A.,” a track James had made point to namecheck during an in-studio interview with MOJO last fall. Lost forevermore? Not in the age of the internet.com. UtahFM radio show/website LivingEars got a hold of the song in its 12+ minute, single-grooved, keyboard-and-cowbell demo form. Pretty rambling, clearly a demo, lots of spoken word about, well, love in Los Angeles. Can’t say James doesn’t know how to meet expectations with his song titles.
