LCD Soundsystem called a glorious career to a halt with a remarkable three-hour show at Madison Square Garden last weekend. But James Murphy's legacy far exceeds his LCD achievements. As co-founder of the DFA label, he helped invent an oh-so-cool New York sound that hybridised dance, punk and hip-hop.

And now Holy Ghost! look set to continue where he left off.

Granted, the duo's achievements are best appreciated in short bursts rather than over the course of an album, but their genre-melding smarts impress on the super-catchy Wait and See, which has elements of both Kraftwerk and Duran Duran.
