I heart LCD Soundsystem

So I've been feeling pretty down for the last month and a half or so, the kind of down where I only get out of bed to lie on the couch, bla bla bla angst. Anyway, it was on a lonesome Saturday night that I stumbled across an mp3 of a song called "New York, I Love You, But You're Bringing Me Down" on my laptop. I listened and it was brilliant. The next day I did a little bit more research and discovered another LCD Soundsystem song, "All My Friends". And woah. That song, you guys. Go listen to it now. You're back? Good. Anyway, something about it, maybe the driving piano line, who knows, gave me the motivation to get out of bed and do something, I didnt know what, but something good. A few days later I completely impulsively bought their album "Sound Of Silver" on Amazon, it arrived the other week and I've been listening to it pretty much every day. I don't think I've been this excited about a band since I discovered Jaguar Love, it's amazing. The songs are a bit longer and more like dance music in structure than I'm used to, but its great, they never overstay their welcome, instead building up and up until your mind is sufficiently blown, then the album moves on to do the exact same thing with the next song. So good, it's like an album made of the pie from Spiderman 3 (If you're reading this, James Murphy from LCD Soundsystem, feel free to use that as a pull quote).
Anywho, things are getting a bit TL;DR over here, so I'll leave you with possibly one of my new favourite songs, "Someone Great". Enjoy!
