Shit Robot – ‘OB-8’


While most of the column inches concerning DFA Records has been largely about one thing; a certain LCD Soundsystem revival tour.

In other DFA news, DFA stalwart Shit Robot, aka Dubliner Marcus Lambkin, has released a surprise 12″ ‘OB-8’ b/w ‘Torpedo’. ‘OB-8’ is a transfixing 7-minutes plus that comes off like it could quite perfectly, soundtrack a futuristic late night drive. Heavy synths, dark atmospheres and hypnotic rhythm combine in epic fashion, aided by some vocal and fluttering samples, winding and throbbing through to the end of the road. This brilliance should come as no surprise, classic Shit Robot mastery. It’s always great to hear new stuff from Shit Robot but no word on when we’ll have a follow up to 2014’s We Got Love. On can hope it is soon. The video is great too, complimenting the essence of the track as we’re taken on a drive through a mesh of bleached and washed-out colours.

You can check out ‘OB-8’ and its excellent visual companion below. ‘OB-8’ / ‘Torpedo’ is out now, buy it on iTunes or Bandcamp via DFA Records.


Shit Robot – ‘Do That Dance’ (ft. Nancy Whang)


Shit Robot and Nancy Whang’s previous pairing proved rather fruitful so it’s no surprise then that they’ve teamed up again on new single, ‘Do That Dance’.

‘Do That Dance’ is taken from Shit Robot’s second album We Got A Love, the follow up to the Dubliner’s 2010 stellar debut, From The Cradle To The Rave. On this occasion the re-united partnership of Shit Robot and Nancy Whang deliver a spectacular example of super cool, swaggering and funky disco-dance. This essence of complete and utter coolness is in no small way down to Whang as she effortlessly sing/speaks her way through the track. The lo-fi video features lots of Whang dancing to a backdrop of grainy clips from great moments in football, including Maradona’s wonder goal versus England in ’86 and Ireland’s World Cup heroics against Romania in ’90 & Italy in ’94.

Shit Robot’s new album We Got Love was released this week on DFA and the launch party is happening this Saturday, March 22nd in The Button Factory, Dublin.
