James Murphy to release LCD Soundsystem Live Album

LCD’s last ever live show at Madison Square Garden in 2011 is being mixed by James Murphy himself and set to be released early 2014. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Murphy said:

‘And finally, Jesus, the fucking live album. It’s killing me. That’s been just murder… I mixed it significantly differently than the film [Shut Up and Play the Hits], because the film is mixed for your eye and the record is mixed for your ears… It was like the concert happened, and then I spent the next year and a half fucking with it. I was like, “I’m done! Ah, shit. I gotta go deal with the fucking movie.” I had to do Shut Up and Play the Hits, and dealing with the live footage, and mixing all the sound for the live footage, and then I had to do the whole four-hour concert and edit all that footage and mix everything. It was great, but also, like, shitting hell. It really just refused to die. I guess somebody else would just have someone else deal with the movie, but I’m an idiot and wanted to mix all that audio.’

It’s been a busy year for Murphy, having: produced Arcade Fire’s, Reflektor, remixed Bowie, directed a short film, worked with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, blended his own type of coffee (YES you read that right) and created his own sound system called Despacio, he’s a man that has been taken out of the lime light but still very much involved with music…and coffee.
