In this weekly series, we’ll cover someone’s favorite Album of the Week.
Exploring new music and discovering new bands is always fun. Without music we couldn’t even listen to all of great gear. Music is what unites us and as such we are reviving a very old series, in which we each week talk about one specific album. In short: “The Album of the Week”!
Lieven started his album of the week with a record he’d been listening to for 32 years. I will start mine with a very recent discovery. Although it is not exactly a new album either. My album of this week is LCD Soundsystem’s – This is Happening.
I have known the track Dance Yrself Clean for many years, but I have never listened to the album in full until my girlfriend brought it to my attention just a couple of months ago. Somehow I did not give LCD Soundsystem as much attention as they clearly deserved. But I am very glad that mindset shifted.
This album is full of fantastic songs, but my favorite remains Dance Yrself Clean. I love the exploding tempo and style, just before it calms down again. Somewhere I have read, that the song is about a fighting couple. The changing speed of the song definitely makes sense in that regard, as well as some of the lyrics.
So there you have it. My pick for album of the week. If you haven’t given it a chance, do it. You might enjoy it as much as I do. At least I hope you do.
