Album: Sound of Silver

James Murphy brought a lot to the indie world with LCD Soundsystem. While so many artists of the past decade were caught up with being cool, James Murphy was over it. His acceptance of growing up made for some of the most complex music of the decade. All at once it could evoke some bittersweet combination of nostalgia and apathy with little splashes of elation mixed in. Nothing captures this blend as perfectly as "All My Friends."
