[video] LCD Soundsystem - "Drunk Girls"

I can't believe This Is Happening

In about a month, LCD Soundsystem's third LP This Is Happening hits shelves (May 18), and the first single off the album has just been given a music video. You'll either hate "Drunk Girls" or you'll find the infectious chorus quite lovely, but either way, this video is off the wall.

Co-directed by Spike Jones (listen for the Where The Wild Things Are howl at the end) and LCD mastermind James Murphy, it's quite hilarious. The music video documents the band singing over the studio track while they're pummeled by drunk "panduhs." Some of this actually looks like it was quite unpleasant for the band. But it's very entertaining and worth the watch.

This Is Happening is streaming at the LCD's website in its entirety.
