Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we'll provide the jams.
I was actually going to do "New York I Love You But You're Bringing Me Down," but my wife reminded me it's the one LCD Soundsystem song she didn't like so… I'll save it for the NYAS.
Of all the "cool" bands you should like, you should actually like LCD Soundsystem. You have to listen to it a few times to like it, but do so. You don't have to listen to Bat for Lashes or Swan or even Dirty Projectors. You don't have to listen to any of it. Listen to LCD Soundsystem as it is undeniably, inarguably, indefatigably cool.
Blame James Murphy. At 22 they offered him a job writing scripts for a show based in NYC that was later named Seinfeld but instead he decided to live on an inflatable mattress fucking around with a guitar. Worth it.
