The robotification of musical taste

James Murphy was the big man behind the recently discontinued LCD Soundsystem. In case you've never heard of him, he's like the David Byrne for the post-whatever generation. It's a pleasure to hear him talk about music. This interview (2006) by m ss ng p eces is totally up to the minute.

What Murphy says about the robotification of musical taste makes a lot of sense. What he says about atonal music and 'musique concrete' doesn't make sense at all ~ but that's ok. On his shirt you see the album cover of Future Days by Can.
