This Is How We Do Hits

The LCD Soundsystem album is so good that it's almost criminal. I urge you to buy it. Seriously. It's one of those records that's so good that it's a problem--I'm afraid I'm going to play it out in a couple months. I just copped yesterday, so I can't say too much. I'm really glad that bands like TVOTR, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Passion Pit etc. aren't abandoning the dance floor. 


Some of us from the glory days of underground rap did exactly that. I think it came out of resentment for the clubs and all of their pretensions. I would rather we had fought for the dance-floor, than simply handed it over to Puff. The dance-floor has a kind of subconscious
democracy that's important. It's good to see these guys fighting it out.

Props to Stacy for recommending. We should give you a monthly music column. "Stacy Recommends."
