Biography

New York City, New York, United States (2001 – 2011)

LCD Soundsystem was the musical project of producer James Murphy, co-founder of label DFA Records. Formed in 2001 in New York City, New York, United States, the music of LCD Soundsystem can also be described as a mix of and , along with elements of and other styles.

During the band’s final years, Murphy was accompanied by Al Doyle (guitar, percussion — also of Hot Chip), Tyler Pope (!!! / Out Hud) (bass), Nancy Whang (keyboards) and Pat Mahoney (drums). Members that played live with Murphy under the LCD Soundsystem name before this time include Phil Mossman (guitar, percussion) and Phil Skarich (bass).

LCD Soundsystem gained attention with its first single, “Losing My Edge”. The song, which sounds like the boastings of a music geek put to an electronic beat, received acclaim in 2002. Murphy released a double album simply titled LCD Soundsystem in February of 2005 to critical acclaim. The first disk of the album contains new music and the second contains re-releases of songs previously released as singles. The opening track “Daft Punk Is Playing at My House” entered the Top 40 in March 2005.

On December 8, 2005 the group received nominations for two Grammys in the category for their self-titled album and in the Dance category for “Daft Punk Is Playing At My House”. This album was also chosen as one of Amazon.com’s Top 100 Editor’s Picks of 2005.

    Because it's the first track on the most recent studio album (plus, obviously, a good song in its own right), so not only does it get the plays of everyone listening to it on its own, it also gets the plays of everyone listening to This Is Happening, it also gets the plays of everyone who listens to This Is Happening for the first time but decides they don't like it.

    I wonder why 'Dance Yrself Clean' is the top track of the past year...I mean, I love it (obviously, it's my most played song of theirs), but it wasn't even a single.

    Can anybody recommend stuff similar to New York I Love You But You're Bringing Me Down? I've really loved that song for a while now, but I just can't get into many of the other top tracks, I don't really like the Dancy stuff. Any suggestions?
