After snippets of two new LCD Soundsystem songs, â€œDrunk Girlsâ€ and â€œPow Wowâ€ (from the bandâ€™s still-untitled May album), leaked yesterday, a full version of the former has made its way to the Internet. But before we get to that â€” whatâ€™s Michael Mustoâ€™s response to getting straight dissed on â€œPow Wowâ€?! During the segment currently available, in the brief moments when heâ€™s not chanting â€œpow,â€ James Murphy sends out this missive to the Village Voice columnist: â€œOh eat it, Michael Musto/Youâ€™re no Bruce Vilanch.â€ Sensibly, the Voice got Musto to retort this morning, and we learned a lot: comparing Musto to his pal Vilanch is â€œlike saying â€˜Sandra Bullock can never be Barbara Walters,â€™â€ itâ€™s not pronounced â€œMOO-stoâ€ (MAH-sto, then?), and James Murphy can â€œsuck it.â€ Awesome! Itâ€™s not like we needed a funny fake feud to get psyched for the new LCD album, but itâ€™s certainly not hurting.
Oh, and â€œDrunk Girlsâ€? Romping, hilarious (â€œdrunk girls wait an hour to peeâ€?), and superb (already our second favorite song with the words â€œdrunkâ€ and â€œgirlsâ€ in the title). Surprisingly, though, Murphyâ€™s sounding more like the brash world-beater from his bandâ€™s self-titled debut than the wise nightlife vet from Sound of Silver. Are you sure itâ€™s time to hang it up, James?
