Shit Robot


Its just good that DFA are putting out records again. This is the fourth release in as many weeks, and bless my soul if it isnt the strongest yet. As with all the other recent releases its a little bit disco, a little bit techno and a heaving great church full of house. After 4 punchy minutes of bleeps, bass lines and jack, the bloke from House Of House shows up with a sack full of 92 rave pianos hes pinched from Detroit and starts emoting all over the place, working the track into what is generally considered epic territory. As with the greatest releases on DFA theres an excellent sense of pacing at playthe stripped down opening half feels essential rather than noodling, and when the piano and vocals do kick in its less everything stepping up a notch, more everything falling into place. Recommended.
