James Murphy Describes His Brooklyn Store, Hints at LCD Soundsystem Reunion
James Murphy has been keeping a relatively low profile since disbanding LCD Soundsystem in 2011, but Brooklyn residents will soon be able to shop at his new store, House of Good — and we might even be hearing new songs from the band.
In a profile piece published by the New York Times, Murphy discussed his plans for House of Good, which he’d previously described as “a store that sells stuff.” As it turns out, that “stuff” will include a motley assortment of inventory that Pitchfork describes as “custom luggage designed by Murphy, coffee, candy from Denmark, socks, and Chinese speakers.”
Murphy also talked about his brush with acting fame, revealing that not only was he scheduled to provide the music for Noah Baumbach’s HBO adaptation of the Jonathan Franzen novel ‘The Corrections,’ but he had also been on tap to star — until the network pulled the plug on the show, that is.
So what’s on the horizon for Murphy now? Perhaps some new LCD Soundsystem music, believe it or not. Although he wouldn’t name the director behind the project, he did hint that a filmmaker is interested in having the band get back together to cover a song for a soundtrack — and the band “seems to want to do” whatever it is. Fingers crossed!
