Auditory Pleasures // #16

Auditory Pleasures is back for another look at some of the best tracks premiered this week.

So James Murphy, aka LCD Soundsystem, has said his upcoming album will be his last, such a shame for the music industry for someone with such credentials to be giving it all in at what could be his peak. ‘Drunk Girls’ is the first track to be previewed from the as yet untitled album. It’s a fun and pretty self explanatory track which seems ripe for remixing.

Delorean’s blend of dance, indie and electro seems a perfect combination to ensure plenty of features from all around the web. ‘Stay Close’ builds upon these genres and comes out with it’s own unique combination of sounds.

Foals continue to increase the buzz surrounding their upcoming album Total Life Forever with another track which feels much more Foals-esq than the previously featured ‘Spanish Sahara’. Comparisons with the likes of Bloc Party are floating around after the premier of ‘This Orient’, it’ll be interesting to see what becomes of Total Life Forever.

Although The National have never exactly been a band I’d consider listening to for extended periods ‘Bloodbuzz Ohio’ managed to capture my attention with it’s grandeur nature yet sombre vocals. Matt Berninger’s baritone delivery is brought to the forefront thanks to the brilliantly arranged set of instruments used.
