LCD Soundsystem - Sound of Silver
It only takes one song. "All My Friends," the centerpiece of Sound of Silver and James Murphy's career as LCD Soundsystem, is that song. Murphy spent his young adult life being, quite literally, the perfect hipster, and when the time came to head his own project he took up the role again convincingly, albeit with a healthy amount of weariness and an unhealthy amount of regret. While a lot of LCD Soundsystem's output is sharp, oublique and sarcastic, "All My Friends" is where any pretenses are dropped. It's the retrospective over a perfect piano line that doesn't bullshit you; advice from the guy who's been through it all and can say, with confidence, that you "won't change one stupid decision, for another five years of life." So hipsters, be hipsters: James Murphy says you won't regret it.
