Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun

After two nights of LCD Soundsystem at the El Rey, I still can't get enough of James Murphy. Of course the highlight was the encore song for both nights, "New York, I Love You..." but the surprise was how much I enjoyed "All My Friends."

Here's the most awesomest cosmic correlation; my two current favorite bands, LCD & Destroyer, both get a kick out of referencing Pink Floyd's "Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun." There some other bands who do it too but these are the two finest right now, sans pareil.

Destroyer's "To The Heart Of The Sun On The Back Of Vulture, I'll Go.mp3"
