Lick yrself clean

Feast on this meow mix.

There comes a time in every cat lady’s life when the strange love she has of her cat(s) can be shared with the world without coming off as incredibly weird. For me, that time is now.

Meet LCD Catsystem,  otherwise known as “Dammit, why didn’t I think to record myself meowing songs?” Because, you guys, I totally do that. It’s mostly as a joke … mostly.

Anyway, I’m just going to go ahead and let the “meowstros” of LCD Catsystem explain their adventure into the land of awesome:

“Not since the deified cats of Ancient Egypt have cats been treated with such respect. This new generation learned from their owners the ways of the world as they experienced it. They saw the same films, they read the same books, and certainly listened to the same music. Some of these animals became even more nuanced and subtle arbiters of taste than their owners, perhaps owing to markedly superior sensory perception to humans. This is the spring from which LCD Catsystem flows, a wealth of inspiration and genius where one would not be sticking her neck out by predicting the next great movement in art. LCD Catsystem is the ultimate collection of the genius of the current cat scene.”


Here is LCD Catsystem putting their paw mark on one of my favorite LCD Soundsystem songs, “Dance Yrself Clean.” (And you need to stick around through the whole song — if you know the James Murphy version, you know it really builds to something great.) And a request, can we get “New York, I Love You” next?
