For those who had been reading my Rants of a Misanthrope blog last year, LCD Soundsystem’s This Is Happening was my top disc of 2010. The album opens with a great track, Dance Yrself Clean, which pretty much sets the tone for the rest of this brilliant disc. If you haven’t heard it, it’s time you did.
Last week, a video for Dance Yrself Clean arrived on You Tube featuring the Muppets. I see it as a kind of ironic shout out/ fuck off to certain music critics (cough* Brent DiCrescenzo* cough) who described singer James Murphy’s vocals as Kermit-like. Check it out.
