    LCD Soundsystem have paid tribute to the Twin Peaks composer Angelo Badalamenti, who died earlier this week, and late singer Julee Cruise (who passed away this summer) by covering the show’s theme, “Falling.”

    While the stage backdrop at Brooklyn Steel displayed the iconic Twin Peaks Red Room pattern, James Murphy and company incorporated the track into the end of “New York I Love You But You’re Bringing Me Down” during the encore of their show on Tuesday, December 13th. Watch the fan-shot footage of LCD Soundsystem’s Twin Peaks theme cover and see the full setlist below.

    There are a few dates left on LCD Soundsystem’s 20-date Brooklyn Steel residency (grab your tickets here). Earlier during the run, the group also paid tribute to the late Christine McVie.


    In September, LCD Soundsystem dropped their first new song in five years, “new body rhumba,” which they later performed on Colbert. The band recently appeared in Meet Me in the Bathroom, the documentary adaptation of Lizzy Goodman’s oral history of the early 2000s New York City rock scene.
