Park Warden's Blog


A walk in the Park, Volume 225

WARDEN TRACKS... This is something that you'd never hear on the Bear in a million years, but it's still something that I feel needs to be shared.  It's from New York's LCD Soundsystem.  They only released three "official" albums, but when you factor in their EPs, Remix albums, etc., they have a pretty decent discography.  Oh, and they've been nominated for a few Grammy Awards too.  Today's track is one of my favourite songs... Singer James Murphy raves about his "coolness," but admits the "kids" are taking over.  This was a massive track within its respective circles, and I love it.  Click the "play" button in the album graphic to the right and get ready for seven minutes of middle-aged foolery with "LOSING MY EDGE."
