The Diplo-produced “Climax” is my favorite Usher song since his Confessions album, and I’ve been shamelessly playing it over and over again for the past few weeks.

I’ll be the first person to tell you that I didn’t really start listening to LCD Soundsystem until last summer. That said, I fell in love with their music after reading articles about their last concert at Madison Square Garden.
