[LOL SOUNDSYSTEM] Seemingly poised for stardom since attending the same Upper West Side grade school, Nick Millhiser and Alex Frankel haven't faced the rockiest road to clubland stardom: An abandoned hip-hop project of requisite buzz led to James Murphy mentorship that blessed a wealth of opportunities for the neophyte DJs, including remixes of Cut Copy, Moby and MGMT. As lads to the major label born, they painstakingly cultivated their signature sound in clear homage to their forebears. While the pair's eponymous 2011 debut arrived nearly half a decade after triumphant single "Hold On," they've already finished sophomore album Dynamics' similarly-styled melange of synth-craft, classicist disco and a propulsive DFA-ness they've by rights inherited. The release date is expected toward the end of Holy Ghost's summer sojourn with New Order. The apparent lyrical focus betrays a looming awareness of the band's own mortality, which always seems to consume young royals.
