let’s just start this thing finally with some clarity.

LCD Soundsystem is reuniting in 2016 and plans to release a new album. LCD Soundsystem is headlining Coachella 2016. After walking away in one the most memorable set of shows documented in "Shut Up and Play the Hits", James Murphy and crew is returning to the stage but in typical fashion he pours out his heart in a mixture of anxiety, excitement, and pathos evident in all of his songs.

Christmas Will Break Your Heart

Christmas will crush your soul, like that laid back rock n roll ... LCD Soundsystem has given the world one small perfect song this Christmas eve (via James Murphy). You can get it on vinyl (limited run) or iTunes and probably through other sources. But not radio. Never radio. Damn it. [more inside]

Game, Set and Murphy

James Murphy (formerly of LCD Soundsystem) has built an algorithm to musically interpret live data from the US Tennis Open which will create around 400 hours of music. All previous games can be listened to and each has a different flavour - it can get a little glitchy but try Djokovic vs Querry or Brengle vs Lisick for starters. Or have a play with the algorithm yourself.

This is Happening -- You're Not Going

Tickets went on sale this morning for LCD Soundsytems purported last show at Madison Square Garden. The show sold out within seconds, and interestingly enough, few fans got tickets. Not to worry, because there are now endless tickets on StubHub, and if you hurry, it won't set you back more than $10,000 a ticket for general admission pit tickets. James Murphy isn't amused.
