1. "I’ve always been more of a physical music person even when I didn’t listen to dance music; I didn’t quite realize it, but the punk bands I liked had a kind of physicality that I really liked. Lyrically and vocally, I was never all that interested in melody or great voices, and musically, I was never that interested in chord changes. I always liked to find something that kind of did one thing for a really long time and did it very well — or just had a physicalness to it that I really liked."

Music for your Monday: As LCD Soundsystem heads into retirement — its last show takes place Saturday night at New York’s Madison Square Garden — The Current pays homage to a band that helped define the sound of new music. With artists name-checked directly in “Losing My Edge,” they created a music stream that pays tribute to where LCD Soundsystem came from and where the band was first inspired.

  1. As the best of 2010 keeps rolling along here at Fresh Air world headquarters, we’ll be bringing you Terry’s amazing interview with Jay-Z today. If you missed it the first time — or want to hear again — tune in to hear him discuss growing up in the Marcy Houses housing project, crack in the ’80s, crotch-grabbing and misogyny in rap lyrics.  
Also on deck is an encore presentation of our interview with LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy, who is not losing his edge.
