Last month, LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy chatted with critics Jim DeRogatis and Greg Kot on their rock and roll radio show Sound Opinions. During the near hour-long conversation, the frontman/producer dished about, among other things, being a middle-aged artist in the music business, his love for the guitar work on the B-52’s “Rock Lobster” and the positive effects of gentrification on New York City. He also does an amusing impersonation of the guys from Daft Punk. The fantastic interview is essential viewing for fans of Murphy and his band.
