LCD Soundsystem is the musical side project of producer James Murphy, co-founder of New York City dance-punk label DFA Records. Formed in 2001, the music of LCD Soundsystem can be described as a mix of alternative dance and post punk, along with elements of disco and other styles.
LCD Soundsystem gained attention with its first single, “Losing My Edge”. The song, which sounds like the boastings of a music geek put to an electronic beat, received great reviews in 2002. Murphy released a double album simply titled LCD Soundsystem in February of 2005 to critical acclaim.
The track streaming above is “Someone Great”, taken off LCD Soundsystem’s recently released sophomore album Sounds Of Silver.

For the first time in her career, Zemfira recently released a live album. The songs that appear on Zemfira Live were recorded during her extended tour after the release of her fourth studio album, Vendetta, which sold around half a million copies in Russia and its neighboring countries.
New sounds coming from Iceland! Eberg’s music is fresh, it’s original, it’s gorgeous! Just listen to “Inside your head” or “Plastic Lion” and you will be charmed by this very talented young Icelandic artist.
His first album, Plastic Lion, was originally only released in Iceland, in a handmade wooden case, and the profits raised from the sale of these 50 first exclusive copies allowed the band to make more CDs, with a more conventional packaging this time. After getting rave reviews for his first work, Eberg released a new CD earlier this year and it’s now available for download on

Regina Spektor was born in Moscow, Russia, and started studying classical piano from the age of six, practising on a Petrof piano given to her mother by her grandfather. She was also exposed to the music of rock and roll bands such as The Beatles, Queen, and The Moody Blues by her father, who obtained such recordings in Eastern Europe and traded cassettes with friends in the Soviet Union. When she was only nine, her family left the Soviet Union, during the period of Perestroika when Jewish citizens were permitted to emigrate. Travelling first to Austria and then Italy and the US, the Spektors settled in the Bronx, where Regina gained a firm grounding in classical music and then gradually became interested in pop, rock, and punk as well.
Regina Spektor self-released her first two albums 11:11 (2001) and Songs (2002) and sold after performances in downtown NYC. In 2004, she signed a contract with Sire Records to publish and distribute her third album Soviet Kitsch, originally self-released in 2003. Met with critical acclaim, this album helped cement Spektor’s transition from underground to mainstream success.
