Notables: You Can’t Hide/Shame on You (Live) by LCD Soundsystem: Comedian/Musician Reggie Watts performed alongside LCD Soundsystem at Madison Square Garden during their final show, which was filled to the brim with memorable moments. Shut Up and Play the Hits, a documentary about James Murphy and the last LCD Soundsystem show, includes this performance, and is available on Netflix.
Can’t Do Without You by Caribou: Caribou has always been an interesting and off-kilter musical presence, managing to infuse pop with his own brand of experimentation. This is may be his best work since 2005’s The Milk of Human Kindness.
Notables: Tongues by Dear Rouge: The Vancouver wife and husband duo, have a moody 80s-esque pop spark and understated gritty synch rock combo going. Fast and fierce and in your face this band draws a lot of comparisons to Metric, the Yeahs Yeahs Yeahs, and The Submarines.
