“Daft Punk Is Playing At My House”
by LCD Soundsystem (2005)
When you first see the title of this song, you sort of think it’s probably going to be a joke, or some kind of novelty song. A song written about electronic duo Daft Punk coming and playing at somebody’s house? Come on! But after you HEAR it, you know that it’s no joke at all. It’s incredible!
LCD Soundsystem is the musical project of New York music producer James Murphy, and “Daft Punk…” comes his first full self-titled CD, released in 2005. All of the LCD Soundsystem is excellent… a mix of dance and techno and rock and pop. I definitely recommend checking out the entire catalog. James Murphy released another LCD Soundsystem disc, Sound Of Silver, in 2007 and is now working on his third CD, hopefully to be released this year. He is also doing new music for the soundtrack of the upcoming Ben Stiller film Greenberg, and will be performing at the Coachella festival in April.
If you’ve never had the pleasure, here is “Daft Punk Is Playing At My House”!
