LCD Soundsystem: Electropunk Meets Artful Lyricism.



.:LCD Soundsystem:.

Good lyrics are not something most people commonly associate with electronic music these days. To many there is even a lack of good instrumental electronic music. Pop has really turned into a four let.....uhhhh....You know.

Anyways, LCD Soundsystem is one of those bands rocking out with pure genuine tunes. James Murphy is the brainchild of LCD Soundsystem in the studio churning out catchy tunes with a mixture of vintage and modern gear. His lyrics are presented as being poetic if not at times following the geek aesthetic.

don't let the studio work overshadow the live show though. This is defiantly not one of those bands hammering it out all in a computer and then looking content as they hit play. With a full band James is accompanied by drummer, Pat Mahoney; keyboardist, Nancy Whang; bassist, Tyler Pope; and Phil Mossman on guitar. The songs translate quite well live and the music is definitely something to check out. The songs effectively come across as being familiar while maintaining the interest one would expect from a live show. The overall experience is a unique blend of artful indie punky gooey goodness while still getting you to move your rump.

So hit up their website and give them a look.
