Former LCD Soundsystem man James Murphy has made his coffee line available to buy online.

Murphy's brand of hot beverages, which are sold under the banner House Of Good, was made in collaboration with coffee company Blue Bottle. They are now selling a pound bag of the coffee on their official website for $26 (£15.50) each.

Blue Bottle say the coffee is a "syrupy, well-balanced and thoroughly accessible" espresso and adds: "Its flavor profile – dried cherry, cocoa, meyer lemon – is a harmony between the voluptuous and the austere: It’s akin to the second movement of Carl Nielsen’s Symphony No. 3 – or, perhaps, to that buzzing, syncopated synth line from 'Dance Yrself Clean'. Depends on which James you ask."

Earlier this week (February 24), Murphy revealed a brief preview of his plan to turn the New York subway into a multi-station symphony. The producer wants to make every subway station in the US city have its own music, so that people will later associate the place with that sound – click below to hear a teaser snippet of his proposal.

Metropolitan Transport Authority spokesperson Adam Lisberg, however, has seemingly dismissed Murphy's scheme by claiming that it would require lots of financial resources for "an art project". In response, Murphy has set up both a website and petition for people to back his idea at www.subwaysymphony.org.
