Both Lamar and Tame Impala are coming off big years. Lamar released his Grammy-winning To Pimp a Butterfly last year and followed suit with a surprise album comprised of demos from those sessions, untitled unmastered, at the beginning of the month. Tame Impala dropped their critically lauded Currents in 2015, too.
LCD Soundsystem, meanwhile, just kicked off their buzzed-about reunion tour with a couple of shows in New York City. They have more concerts and festival appearances planned all summer-long. James Murphy and company have also signed with Columbia to record their first album since 2010’s This Is Happening.
