What James Murphy,(the DJ/Producer behind the name LCD Soundsytem) has done is really interesting. Sometimes described as dance-punk, I like to think of it more alternative dance, trance for the mainstream. His three albums under the moniker have been incredibly received, topping charts, best of articles, and hipsters playlist everywhere. And I'm not one who can usually listen to an eight minute song at any given time, but he keeps it fresh and fun, literally mixing it up with his unique arrangements every time. He's a musical chameleon, with the ability to sound like a different artist each song. This track, All My Friends, is probably his most well known, and even got named the second best song of the decade by Pitchfork. Make sure to check out the third (and supposedly final under the name LCD Soundsystem) record which dropped in May.
