For its June edition, Classic Album Sundays Sydney hosts a celebration of LCD Soundsystem's endlessly infectious masterpiece of indie-dance and New York City grit, to mark the 10th anniversary of its release. (Can you believe it's been 10 years? Neither can we.) With the band back together and touring Australia this winter and the head-nodding, heartrending tunes that make up this astonishing album on everyone's minds, this is one listening party you won't want to miss!
Join us in the intimate Bordello room at The World Bar in Kings Cross – and if it's crowded all the better.
Hosts: Carolina De La Piedra (The Heat), DJ Jim Poe (Deep House Australia)

What is Classic Album Sundays?
Classic Album Sundays is the world's most popular record club. CAS allows the listener to fully immerse themselves in the music by presenting the musical context, the story behind the album and an uninterrupted replay of the album on vinyl on an audiophile hi-fi sound system (with phones switched off and no conversation). People learn about the history of the album and then hear things in the music that they have never heard before. The events are mainly attended by non-audiophiles who are sometimes moved to tears when they hear the details of their favourite recordings.
CAS currently holds regular classic-album listening sessions in London, New York, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Tokyo, Amsterdam, Oslo and many more cities. As it has touched upon a cultural nerve with its mission of challenging the way we listen to music in the 21st century, CAS has received amazing coverage in BBC Breakfast TV, The Guardian, Elle Magazine, NME, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and more.
Classic Album Sundays was founded by Colleen “Cosmo” Murphy. Murphy is a radio host (having hosted shows since 1982 and having produced widely syndicated radio shows in the USA); an international audiophile DJ (protegé of David Mancuso and Francois Kevorkian and Director of London's Lucky Cloud Sound System); music producer and remixer (remixes for The Rapture on DFA and producing Wild Rumpus with guitarist Gary Lucas of Captain Beefheart and Jeff Buckley fame); independent label owner (Bitches Brew); and a music journalist. In her younger years, Murphy worked for a number of well-known record shops, where she amassed far too many records.
