LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy Says EDM Makes Him Want to Vomit
During a recent interview with MusicWeek, Murphy let it be known in no uncertain terms that the current tide of EDM sweeping America frankly sucks.
"What I see in the commercial side of it I find repellent. It makes me want to vomit," he said. "I just don't like it, it's not for me but it's also not designed for me. I'm old and it's very maximalist and I'm not a maximalist guy. I'm sure there's great stuff happening but it's just not reaching me and it probably shouldn't. I'm not excited about new stuff that much."
Murphy went on to lament the absence of a new burgeoning scene coming along to usher in the next wave of genuine and enduring music. Much like how DFA and LCD Soundsystem revitalized a dance world tired of superstar DJs and velvet ropes in the early aughts. Read what he had to say about that.
