Anticipation is running mighty high for the upcoming, third LCD Soundsystem album, This Is Happening. First, there were teaser videos documenting frontman James Murphy and co. recording, followed by an unveiling of the cover art, after which came the first single, "Drunk Girls." Now even more songs and videos of new LCD material have made their way online.

A few sites are hosting the new songs, but we prefer the streams on the We All Want Someone to Shout For blog. Featured there is a low-quality rip of Happening opener "Dance Yrself Clean" and one of the most '80s sounding songs Murphy has penned, "I Can Change." A live version of that same song is also up on Youtube, as well as a performance of "Drunk Girls," both from a recent show in NYC. Lastly, MP3 download hub Juno Records has a snippet of a burning hunk of dancefloor goodness called "Pow Pow," though it's just a short preview.

Between the officially released singles, these appetite-whetting teasers, and a good chunk of time before the album comes out, chances are we'll be hearing all of This Is Happening's nine songs before its release on May 18.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
