american dream by LCD Soundsystem
Can't Stop, Won't Stop James Murphy
Seven years after the fantastic "final" album This Is Happening, LCD Soundsystem is back! For much of the past year, LCD been touring and headlining music festivals all over and has been met rapturously.
The man behind and in front of the LCD Soundsystem moniker is the helplessly cool and conscientious James Murphy. During his leave of absence, Murphy's unrecorded catalog swelled; fortunately, he decided with a little help from his band and fans and David Bowie to press them to vinyl.
Like their previous albums (Sound of Silver for instance), the fourth LCD Soundsystem album american dream is full of danceable punk. The songs thoughtfully and expertly quip with loss and time spent—always being cool.
