DAVID BOWIE – LOVE IS LOST (HELLO STEVE REICH MIX BY JAMES MURPHY FOR THE DFA)
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know I’m hugely late to this party but I have been unable to blog for a few days. Anyway, I don’t need to make excuses to you. It’s just that this is too good to ignore. Explicitly channelling Steve Reich’s ‘Clapping Music,’ this takes melds it into a gorgeous cosmic piece of LCD goodness which is up their with the best of Murphy’s work. His adulation of Bowie is clear (particularly in final LCD album This Is Happening,) and it’s clear he wanted to do justice to one of his idols. He’s certainly done that, this is a 10 minute phenomenon.
