A New Jersey-born punk in a dance-floor world, James Murphy got attention in 2002, thanks to the butt-shaking single Losing My Edge, a savagely self-mocking track that sent up hipsters of all ages and stripes. Honestly, the stuff LCDSS is releasing simply kicks ass upon impact. Attitude-filled tracks, punchy dance-floor hits… it’s why LCD Soundsystem succeeds as a splendid dance act as well as a smart intellectual exercise. One of Murphy’s strengths is how he can get away with penning a gonzo disco-punk number and naming it something as fantastically flippant as Daft Punk Is Playing at My House… If what James Murphy recently said is to be believed, This Is Happening will be the third and last record that Murphy releases as LCD Soundsystem. Miss this show and hate yourself for it!
