LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy hones the grand style of his "Sound of Silver" album to an even finer indie-dance point with "This Is Happening" (DFA). There are extended dance anthems to burn - especially the thrilling "Dance Yourself Clean" and "Pow Pow," while the single "Drunk Girls" is a jaunty, more focused "North American Scum." But it's the "Heroes"-era David Bowie flair of "All I Want" and the punk rebelliousness of "You Wanted a Hit," clocking in at a radio-unfriendly nine-minutes-plus, that guarantee "This Is Happening" will be the soundtrack to cool spaces all summer long.
