No Love Lost

lcd soundsystem
Hands down, this is the best Joy Division cover I've ever heard, and that's not just because it's by LCD Soundsystem (one of my favs!)
The group added a unique and reasonable twist to the classic song and released it on the single for "All My Friends" earlier this month.

By bringing out the prog and kraut aspects of the melody, James Murphy & co. were able to add a dancier side to the utterly depressing song (no matter how you twist it).
While I tend to dislike Joy Division covers (too precious, that band!), I think LCD Soundsystem did the group justice by clearly hailing the original track and never once making you think it's something else than a Joy Division classic.

Enjoy!
