LCD Soundsystem Have An Ice Cream Truck Going Around Chicago

LCD Soundsystem didn't give us any sneak peeks of unheard material when they were here in the flesh at Pitchfork Music Festival. But you can apparently hear previews (of sorts) of new music in Chicago this weekend: the band has an American Dream ice cream truck in town.

The truck is giving out free ice-cream treats (which is cool) but the music is all ice-cream-truck-music versions of the upcoming record (maybe less exciting). Also: no, the band is not in the truck.

They set up shop near Lollapalooza on Friday afternoon, but appear to be on the move a bit, having alerted Cubs fans on Clark, too. You can follow the movements here.
