Talk about deja vu. I just started listening to LCD Soundsystem’s new record, Sound Of Silver, this past weekend. The first track was okay, but nothing great. So, I was pretty happy when Get Innocuous faded into the background, and I started grooving out to Daft Punk Is Playing In My House. Until I realized that it wasn’t Daft Punk. I clicked on my iPod, and it turned out to be some song called Time To Get Away. Now, I’m no expert, but these two songs sound a hell of a lot alike to me. See for yourself:

After a few more listens, I got really curious. So, I fired up Audacity, and played the two tracks over each other. Something was just a little off, so I moved Time To Get Away over a little to the right, and the songs synced up. Don’t believe me? Listen to this:

Pretty freaky, eh?

    Now that’s what came across my mind when I heard Time To Get Away.I guess they’re playing Daft Punk at their studio (a lot!).

    that is what is so amazing about this album. i couldn’t believe he was gonna open the album (‘get innocuous’ which imho is 2nd best track after the amaaaaaaaazing ‘all my friends) with exact opening to his first ever track i.e. ‘losing my edge’. someone needs to call the irony police, this man is too hot. there’s no reference like self-reference – standing on the soldiers of giants ‘n’ all that.
