Time for your repetitive weekly update of all things new musicy. I’ll tell ya what’s good, what’s bad, and what’s a waste of your time. Thanks for stopping by!!
The Big News
Yeah, the whole LCD Soundsystem retirement thing was a big ripoff (on NPR today Will Hermes said that he cried during their last show). Predictably, the electro-rockers have returned with a new album, but unexpectedly, it is the best thing they’ve ever done. And I mean, by far. Called american dream, England’s NME was perhaps the most excited, sayin that the album: “delivers, point by point, on everything you could want from an LCD Soundsystem album.”
