My 25 Favorite Artists of the 2000s - #24

#24 - LCD Soundsystem

Like Broadcast, James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem was also strongly influenced by music from the past. Instead of the 60s sound, however, LCD Soundsystem leans heavily towards the production work of the late 70s disco era, mixing this with the styles of bands/artists such as Brian Eno, Can and Kraftwerk. Along with releasing some of the best dance singles of the decade, Murphy also helped craft some of the best remixes of recent times for his record label DFA, as well as putting out two unbelievably high quality albums.

My Favorite Albums:
1. Sound of Silver (2007)
2. LCD Soundsystem (2005)
