LCD Soundsystem – “Throw” (Paperclip People Cover)
LCD Soundsystem’s 10-minute tranced-out Paperclip People (aka Carl Craig) cover appears as a well-curated This Is Happening iTunes bonus track. (Thanks for the heads up, We All Want Someone.) The warmer, more tightly looped original is a few minutes longer (when not edited by YouTube), but it doesn’t involve James Murphy stepping into that caterwauling helium falsetto. Take a listen to the Prince-like pep talk at HypeM. Also, speaking of curating, it’s LCD Soundsystem Week at iTunes, which means Murphy gets to promote albums he likes, etc. In case listening to and analyzing This Is Happening didn’t give you enough hints.
