Even if you don’t like LCD Soundsystem — we’ll deal with that problem later — you have to admit that “All My Friends” is a pretty incredible song (and amazing soundtrack to the trailer for Shut Up and Play the Hits). So naturally a cover of the track from Kodaline, who were recently listed on the BBC’s Sound of 2013, is well worth a listen. The Dublin four-piece’s stripped down version goes slow where the original is fast, emotional where LCD Soundsystem’s surges with energy. It’s a fantastic take on this ballad of lost youth. Give it a listen below.
