Led by James Murphy, LCD Soundsystem first made waves in 2002 with the witty, self-deprecating “Losing My Edge.” The band’s excellent self-titled debut album arrived three years later, establishing LCD as a supremely smart and cool yet easily accessible dance-rock outfit. As clever and inventive as Murphy and company are, many of their best songs are as earnest as they are danceable, from “All My Friends” in 2007 to “All I Want” and “I Can Change” in 2010. LCD disbanded within a year of the release of 2010’s This Is Happening, but two years ago, reports began circulating that LCD Soundsystem were mapping out a reunion. They released a holiday single called “Christmas Will Break Your Heart” at the end of 2015, and they began playing shows again in March 2016. Now they’re back in full swing. Released at the top of September, the fourth proper LCD album, American Dream, features the superb singles “Call the Police” and “Tonite.”
