Following on from their self titled debut album Sound Of Silver felt like LCD Soundsystem’s first fully realised album and would catapult James Murphy from being a guy regarded as having an amazing record collection to a self-conscious songwriter capable of delivering a classic.

Sound Of Silver still retains the spirit of the original but refines the concept allowing for songs that still draw heavily on the disco-punk explosion of the late-’70s from bands such as ESG but also feels fresh, modern and capable of standing on its own.

The album is at heart a dance floor album with more than half of the tracks coming in at over six minutes but still has the craft to end with the laid back ‘New York, I Love You But You’re Bringing Me Down.’ A tribute to a city that is at the heart of music, but that is apparently dragging James Murphy down. ‘New York’ swaps out the cowbells and disco beats for simple piano that gives way, in the end, to head-banging guitars; a perfect way to end a nearly perfect album.

We are delighted that we will be joined at our London event by Hot Chip and LCD Soundsystem member Al Doyle who will be interviewed by Gabriel Szatan discussing life on the road with LCD and the inner workings of two of the finest electronic bands in the world.

Join us at one of our worldwide events to hear this album as never before.
