LCD Soundsystem - This Is Happening Good gracious. Half of 2010 has been and gone. Where does the time go?

In the last three months the passing of time has been marked by some strong debuts, some startling comebacks and some landmark achievements where album releases are concerned. Our readers – HI! – continued to mix interest in established names with curiosity about new acts.
