LCD Soundsystem: LCD Soundsystem
Buy! - (DFA/EMI)
LCD Soundsystem is the project of New York musician/producer James Murphy, who’s also co-owner of the hip dance-punk label DFA. His early singles were brilliant satirical jabs at myopic music scenesters, and he’s now followed them up with this excellent debut album combining disco, funk, punk, Beatlesque pop, psychedelia and more. You’ll hear a wide variety of influences in the mix from the Gang of 4 to The Fall and Brian Eno, but Murphy makes it all sound fresh. Even better, the album comes with a bonus disc containing all the earlier singles. The much-hyped electro-clash scene is too often more about campy posturing than musical talent, but LCD Soundsystem is the real deal. 1/20/2005 - Don Yates
