LCD Soundsystem

April 4, 2007

LCD Soundsystem is playing at my house. (My house!)

The last time we checked in with LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy, he was DFA indie-dance disco king, championing scenester booty shaking everywhere with, “Daft Punk is Playing at My House.” But since then, if you haven’t noticed, his LCD Soundsystem sophomore album, Sound of Silver, is working the hype machine, being touted as one of the best albums (if not the best) of the year thus far.

It’s all been said, but I guess I’ll reiterate: the album finds Murphy in top form, at times with tried-and-true DFA dance-punk (“North American Scum” for example, with vocal stylings/lyrics at times recalling Jonathan Richman), and then switched up with some massive Bowie/Eno brilliance (“Someone Great” & “All My Friends”).

You will be sad if you miss this record. You can purchase it from the Virgin Megastore on Union Square for $10, just like on iTunes. (FYI: You are unlikely and shouldn’t attempt to find it free off of blogs, etc.)

The LCD Soundsystem just played the Bowery Ballroom, and will be playing Studio B in Brooklyn on May 12, and Webster Hall on May 15. (“New York’s the greatest, if you can get someone to pay the rent.”)

“North American Scum”

Listen: LCD Soundsystem – “Us v Them” (Go Home Productions Remix). And everything streams from the band’s page:
