Track of the Day: 'I Wanted to Tell Her'

Past TracksNow that LCD Soundsystem has ridden off into the sunset, the DFA Records sound is being ably carried on by acts like Holy Ghost! and The Juan Maclean. Both groups specialize in the same basic style of indie dance that James Murphy specialized in, and here both groups get together for a wonderful cover of a track that we can safely assume makes Al Jourgensen feel a bit queasy. It's a cover of a song from Ministry's first album, With Sympathy, which is the oh-so-1980s synthpop record that in no way foreshadowed that band's evolution into aggro noise terrorists in the 1990s. Despite Jourgensen's reservations, it's a great dance track, and the DFA gang pumps it up to modern sonic standards while staying more-less faithful to the original.
