LCD Soundsystem

"Someone Great"

It’s funny to say something like “Vintage Techno”, but LCD Soundsystem has made art of the term on his latest album Sound of Silver. On one of the album's centerpieces, “Someone Great”, James Murphy has ingeniously combined the sounds of the electronic past into a shoulder rolling groove anthem. The LCD Timemachine travels onward from the influences of the 70’s punkmen to the knowingly flashy and somewhat fascist New Wave era. The song blends the computer rock of Kraftwerk, a Bowieesque melody, and even R2D2 (yes the droid) squeaks and pops with a bass line that sounds like you plugged an American made electric trampoline into a European socket. Which is just a long winded way of saying it’s a pretty chill song that’s also really danceable. The song spans about six and a half minutes, but you’ll be pulling shapes so hard you won’t even notice.
