New York Dance Music,
This review is from: Sound Of Silver (Audio CD)
LCD Soundsystem return with an excellent follow up to their brilliant self titled debut album. There are no 'awkward second album' moments, no obligation to deliver something different, just straight up dancefloor stompers.
James Murphy always reminds me what it is about dance music that I fell in love with. When dance acts like Basshunter, Ultrabeat and Cascada test my faith, there is James to steer me in the right direction. His LCD outfit take thumping house beats, live percussion, guitars, acid basslines and synths to concoct some wonderful musical gems. They take influence from that New York sound of the 80's (Blondie etc.) and mix it with a little disco and house and out comes Get Innocuous! or North American Scum. The title track is one of my favourites, I love the production on it but the vocal grates a little. Overall, this is a superb album of punky, funky, disco house. Buy it, you'll love it!
