The final track on their final album, “Home” is LCD Soundsystem leaving the party. The multi-instrumental beat sets the tone, building to the saddened echoes of frontman James Murphy as he bids everyone good night. Driving drums and undulating synth work send the song careening into the pre-dawn night. It’s as catchy as it is heartbreaking, listening to Murphy’s final hurrah. This song personifies their final moment – and the pressure to make it right – in the most serene way possible.
