a predictably stellar list featuring selections from jonathan richman, the fall, david bowie, kraftwerk, and… a flock of seagulls.

I’m working on music for someone else’s visual art piece, working on songs with friends just for fun, working on songs for myself. I’m just not really being a professional at the moment, which is kinda nice.

Reggie Watts and James Murphy talking collaboration on a 7” single

"James and I might be doing a single sometime soon," Watts, the anarchic, musically inclined stand-up comedian, explained. "It’s still 60 percent loose, but he seems down to do it and I think it would be fun to work with him. That would be great." Yes it would! And when might this collaboration come to light? "I think it’s going to be a seven-inch single with a remix on the other side. I would be the vocals and we would probably be doing some kind of a cover. I’m going to guess sometime next year, early next year, or maybe — he’s a fast dude! Maybe he’ll turn one around."

James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem is glad he didn’t get to write for Seinfeld 

This is the best story from the entire interview: If 22 year old James Murphy had never confused Seinfeld with the Garry Shandling Show, LCD Soundsystem may have never happened.

True story.

brilliantlydifferent:

James Murphy is our generations David Byrne - this may seem obvious but those dots hadn’t previously been connected and it was pointed out to us over the weekend. LCD called it a day with 5 sell out shows in New York (their spiritual home) after 3 albums, several seminal and generation defining anthems and more columns inches than any other electronica band of the last decade.

In 2006 James Murphy sat down with Brain Pickings and spoke for 30 minutes on technology, the role of tastemakers, record stores, recommendation filters and the future of taste.

“What’s going to be missing is the unconscious peer pressure that guides people into different forms of taste. What it’s gonna be replaced by is lifestyle marketing and taste engines, which scares the crap out of me.”

From the Tumblr of Henning who found it on Brainpickings

Can we please move on from LCD being a hipster band. LCD were far more important than this limiting derogatory term.

It’s weird watching an interview and just feeling… in love
