Video of the Day: LCD Soundsystem’s “Drunk Girls”


We’re not sure exactly what we expected the video for LCD Soundsystem’s party anthem “Drunk Girls” to look like. Perhaps a scenario with more (rather, any) drunk girls in it. But in a way, basing the thing around a maniacal gang of trouble-making pandas makes perfect sense — as Flavorpill music editor Judy Berman says, James Murphy is one of the great indie-rock teddy bears. If you’re short on time, skip to the 3 minute mark. That’s when people’s pants start coming off. Note: There’s a rumor circulating that the clip was directed by none other than Spike Jonze. Update: It’s true!

“Drunk Girls” is from LCD Soundsystem’s upcoming (and final) album, This is Happening, which will be released in the US on May 18th.
