LCD Soundsystem: American Dream

I vividly remember LCD Soundsystem’s “last show.” I was new to the band, but my friend had an extra ticket and promised me it was not to be missed. As monumental as it felt to be included in an experience that was equal parts sad and beautiful to the point of tearing up at the end, I couldn’t help but feel like I had arrived (almost) too late to a band that could’ve been a fixture in my life. But years later they returned to headline Coachella followed by the release of two singles, and ...

“The city doesn’t feel interesting. It’s too expensive. There’s a lot of really normal people here which is fine, but when I moved here [from New Jersey] in the late ‘80s all my friends were like, ‘You’re fucking crazy.’ Nobody thinks you’re crazy for moving here now.

“I talked to David Bowie. I thought I couldn’t talk to him, but he was so gracious and so friendly. I had an email friendship with David Bowie, which is one of the weirder, more amazing things.”- James Murphy-LCD Soundsystem

After a seven-year hiatus LCD Soundsystem is making music and touring again. But that might not have happened if it hadn’t been for David Bowie’s advice to James Murphy to get “uncomfortable.” 

James Murphy was a guest on BBC Radio 6 Music with Lauren Laverne and he talked about his relationship ...

It’s so easy to develop prejudices when you’ve never encountered a person in whatever group you’re prejudiced against. I hope there’s an opportunity to be of service and share my experience [in a way that’s] true to the music,” she told Pitchfork.
