Jam of the Day | LCD Soundsystem - Dance Yrself Clean

So, the new LCD Soundsystem album, This Is Happening, has been streaming over at the official website for over a week now. I've taken advantage of the preview multiple times, and while I'll say that it is a totally solid effort, it's the album's lead track to which I keep returning.

"Dance Yrself Clean," an epic just shy of the 9:00 mark, is an electro-punk joyride, daytripping through fabricated handclaps, alternating synth chords, and yes, cowbell. But, holy shit, at the 3:10 mark, the song gets all Thelma and Louise and straight up drives over the edge. Seriously, I dare you to resist.

After all, if LCD Soundsystem jumps off a cliff, you do, too.

This Is Happening comes out May 17, 2010 but is available for pre-order now on iTunes. If you order now, you'll get two bonus tracks, the Carl Craig cover "Throw" and "Oh You (Christmas Blues)" from the Greenberg motion picture soundtrack.
