Trailer for LCD Soundsystem’s ‘last days’ documentary released

Artist News

LCD Soundsystem

LCD Soundsystem may be dead, but its zombie corpse lumbers on in the form of ‘Shut Up And Play The Hits’, a new documentary film charting the collective’s farewell gala performance at Madison Square Gardens.

Credited to Dylan Southern and Will Lovelace, who also directed Blur’s 2010 feature ‘No Distance Left To Run’, the film also includes footage by Spike Jonze. It will premiere on 22 Jan as part of the Sundance Film Festival, and is expected to be released on DVD at some point this year.

So, with scenes of LCD leader James Murphy appearing as a sort of forlorn, Bill Murray-esque character (waking up alone in a crumpled dress shirt, walking the dog in his pyjamas), you can watch the trailer here:
