Happy 39th birthday to LCD Soundsystem founder and all around awesome man, James Murphy. Murphy, born in 1970, was pretty much destined to become influenced by the music of the 80s, and while that could've definitely been a bad thing, it turned out fantastically. Murphy's coined songs titled "Losing My Edge" and "North American Scum", and while these may seem like the themes of Kevin Federline's next album, Murphy manages to say them while convincing you of the opposite. We also know Murphy is working on a project outside of LCD Soundsystem, which may include members of Hercules and Love Affair, of which we currently have frustratingly little news. At any rate, we're all estatic to see that his musically adept mind is still at work. I leave you with the opening track of his insanely good most recent album, Sound of Silver, with LCD Soundsystem.
