New LCD Soundsystem book to be released
If you're a fan of LCD Soundsystem then you probably have the t-shirt, you most likely went to see the movie, and if you were lucky you saw a show, but now you can own the book. 'LCD' is a collection of photographs (like the one above) taken by Ruvan Wijesooriya over their hugely successful career.
"All of Ruvan's pictures remind me of that feeling: that you're geographically fucked, and its all happening right now, somewhere else, without you," says Murphy. "There's an enormous amount of intimacy in them, and promise, and intrusion…"
For more information and to see more pictures from 'LCD', head to Power House Books' official site.
At their peak, Murphy and a crack team of touring musicians delivered an electrifying experience live; a clutter of strobes, beats, layers of synths and innovative percussion. On record, LCD captured the essence of the flourishing NYC dance-rock scene that thousands of artists and bands between Brooklyn and Brighton looked to emulate and be part of. [read more]
