Hereís one for the dance music fans out there. The huge influence Grammy award-winning New York based LCD Soundsystem have wielded over dance music since their mesmerising first single, Losing My Edge in 2002 is undeniable. Shut Up and Play the Hits is essentially a day before / morning-after summation of the groupís swan song concert at Madison Square Gardens in April 2011.
Much of it focuses on the enigmatic singer, songwriter and producer James Murphy. At its best it's a profoundly emotional experience, a once-in-a-lifetime coming together of 18,000 people and a revered band led by a man determined to go out with a bang.
