“Dance Yrself Clean” – LCD Soundsystem
LCD Soundsystem was a dance-punk band that was active from 2001-2011. It was based out of New York City and fronted by James Murphy, the co-founder of DFA Records. Murphy played and recorded most of the instrumentation himself while recording, but would play live shows with many different musicians depending on their touring availability. The band released their first eponymous album LCD Soundsystem in 2005, followed a couple years later by Sound of Silver in 2007, and released their third and final album This Is Happening in 2010. LCD Soundsystem played their last show on April 12th, 2011.
I got to see LCD Soundsystem play at Sasquatch Music Festival in the summer of 2010, and I can personally vouch for the fact that their were many, many music festival folk digging it and doing their very best to dance themselves clean. No easy task on the second or third day of camping and listening to bands all day, but they were trying and that’s all that matters. Hope this makes you bob your head and improves your Monday just a little.
