Spin Magazine Names LCD Soundsystem Artist of the Year

Well here it is, Spin Magazine’s coveted Best Of 2010 issue featuring their pick of this years 40 top albums with LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy gracing to cover, without his French bulldog Petunia.

They’ve named LCD Soundsystem artist of the year in the issue which features an up close interview with Murphy on a rare break between the end of a US leg touring with Hot Chip and the beginning of a European jaunt. They’re gearing up for a final show, somewhere next year, so this accolade is well-deserved for Murphy and LCD especially after their stellar release This Is Happening dropped earlier this year.
