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.
