The best LCD album?

album-45-33

I like ‘best’ debates, ‘top 10 this’, ‘best 5 that’ etc.

The reason I ask the question ‘best LCD album?’ is I am sat in a hotel room with a bottle of wine reading a trashy novel. I am listening to 45:33 and I am finding it very hard to come up with an argument against it being the best LCD album. It’s perfect. I hope it goes without saying I am referring only to tracks i – vi and not the extras. I read quite a lot and mostly listen to non-vocal music when reading as I find lyrics distracting. I find 45:33 massively disturbing to my consumption of trashy novels even though it has little lyrical content. It sounds so amazing, so much so I stop reading altogether!

Lower Dens – To Die in L.A.

Some time ago … 3 years?!? (have we been doing this for 3 years?) I emailed (don’t think we’d made it blogs yet) a track called ‘Brains’ by Lower Dens.  I loved it, I loved the understated album. They’re back and I am quite happy to announce not much has changed … in a good way? I think so.

Here is ‘Brains’ from 2012
