LCD Soundsystem

In 2011 James Murphy announced that he was retiring LCD Soundsystem.

The film Shut Up and Play the Hits even chronicled the last and final concert at Madison Square Garden. However, he and his traveling band performed at Coachella in 2016.

We now have two new songs: Call the Police and American Dream, from a yet unnamed forthcoming album.

The official start of the summer festival season kicked off again in the California desert this weekend past. Well over 100 bands performed at the Coachella Festival, but for the first time in concert history a number of scheduled bands could not make the journey due to the volcanic ash emanating from Eyjafjallajökull in Iceland. Bad Lieutenant, Talvin Singh, Delphic, Hypnotic Bass Ensemble The Cribs, Frightened Rabbit and Gary Numan all had to cancel. The latter two are featured here.
