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.
