LCD Soundsystem - I Used To (Dixon Rework b/w Pulse v.1) 12"DFA Records
Last year, LCD Soundsystem released their long-awaited fourth album american dream. The band's first record since 2010's This Is Happening garnered critical fervor - Pitchfork raved that the songs "couldn’t sound timelier" and "Murphy and company have never sounded so invigorated," while The New York Times hailed "call the police" as "a quietly ambitious protest song… except that instead of searing, it motors." Noisey embraced "american dream" like "a warm blanket."
Now the band return to the fold with two new 12"s, featuring the previously digital-only single "pulse (v.1)," and remixes of "i used to" and "oh baby" by Dixon and Lovefingers. Berlin DJ Dixon (named Resident Advisor's #1 DJ four years in a row) takes on the broodiness of "i used to" and opens it up into a club space, a logical choice for the Innervisions head and Muting The Noise owner. LA native and ESP Institute founder Lovefingers puts two different spins on the sincere "oh baby," making the original track a bit more upbeat and psychedelic. Both Dixon and Lovefingers are prolific selectors and continue the impressive lineage of LCD remixes.
