Album of the Day
The Long Goodbye
Among the most acclaimed dance-rockers of the new millennium, LCD Soundsystem may have been a bit premature when they declared their April 2011 appearance at Madison Square Garden would be their last, but the Brooklyn band nonetheless played a concert to remember. Produced and mixed by founder and frontman James Murphy, THE LONG GOODBYE (LCD SOUNDSYSTEM LIVE FROM MADISON SQUARE GARDEN) is the ultimate audio document of the legendary sold-out show. The new 3-CD collection finds the LCD core live band of Murphy, Pat Mahoney, Nancy Whang, Al Doyle, Gavilán Rayna Russom and Tyler Pope joined by a choir, string and horn sections - plus special guests including Win Butler and Regine Chassagne of Arcade Fire. A career-spanning, near-4-hour performance, THE LONG GOODBYE is an essential document of a singular moment in the history of LCD Soundsystem and New York City’s musical life.
