LCD Soundsystem – This Is Happening

The word is so out, that it almost doesn’t need to be uttered yet again. The new album is good – a masterpiece some say. And I can’t argue. Every track is a winner (with the exception of the dopey Drunk Girls.) James Murphy lays down chunky synth-beats, krautrock grooves, gurgles, chirps, and pays homage to his heros with wit, originality, and a touch of earnestness. We may not hear a finer album this year.

Recommended Tracks (sorry links were pulled):
