LCD Soundsystem

LCD Soundsystem LP

Somewhere way, way the hell out of our solar system lays the planet DFA-- full of people so much cooler than you that its not even funny; they dress perfect, look perfect and when they dance, if they can be bothered, they're fucking ice cold.
"Their king is James Murphy, who sits in a throne made of vinyl above a Saturday Night floor and looks proudly over his shockingly gorgeous people. Losing his edge? Not fucking likely...Bear in mind this is the sound of a party that you will never in a million years be invited to-- unless you're sent The Rapture's invites by mistake-- so take in as much of it as you can now. Then there are the bleeps, crashes and bangs and -- hallelujah-- there are bongos as well. The dance music check list rounds itself off by disseminating the ghost of electroclash and even has time to offer up some screechy mental puppy- killing techno. With startling ease, LCD Soundsystem are becoming close to legendary, grab a part of that legend. --Leonie Cooper, NME
As half of production team DFA (Rapture, Black Dice, Radio 4), [Murphy] created and defined the new sound of the underground. As LCD Soundsystem, he's given the movement its anthem in..."Losing My Edge..." [LCD Sounsystem] is like a collision between Motown and the Happy Mondays, with extra-wired, teethgrinding nervous energy. --Alex Needham, NME
James Murphy must be having the time of his life. The beefy Brooklynite is one half of DFA, the in-demand producers who transformed The Rapture from skronky artpunks into a relevant-sounding concern....LCD Soundsystem ...mines a similar seam of nervy hedonism and raw punk-funk energy....[I]t's the sound of a major new talent striving-- and succeeding-- to be original. Respect. --Piers Martin, NME
