New LCD Soundsystem album streaming on band’s website

1269968325-lcd_600 While Daft Punk is playing at their house, you can still stream LCD Soundsystem’s new album, This Is Happening, into your living room. Or headphones. And this is definitely headphone music.

This LCD Soundsystem’s first album since 2007’s Sound of Silver, the go-to soundtrack for scenester gatherings until – well, now. For those unacquainted, here’s the skinny: life is superficial and inherently ironic, but that doesn’t mean it can’t have a catchy beat. This Is Happening may be the group’s best effort yet, which is saying something.

For a quick brush-up: “All My Friends,” “Get Innocuous,” “North American Scum.”
