Shit Robot at Terminal 5 (more by Andrew St Clair)
Shit Robot

Shit Robot has a few DJ and performance dates in the near future as part of a tour that kicks off in Chicago on Friday night at The Mid where James Murphy will also DJ. The NYC date is a DJ set at Le Bain on August 14th (no James). Full tour dates and a new mixtape and a remix by Shit Robot are below.

In other DFA Records news, The Rapture will play a sold-out Music Hall of Williamsburg on 8/20 which is followed by a bunch of European touring (updated dates below). The band recently released a new remix via an Adult Swim series. You can download the original for the price of your email at DFA. Adult Swim has since released the new Clams Casino track, "Wizard".

Juan MacLean has a few upcoming dates as well, including the previously discussed date on 8/20 at PS1 with Pictureplane (who just played a hot 285 Kent), Blood Orange, Solange Knowles and more. Full tour schedule is below.

Rewards aka Aaron Pfenning of Chairlift has signed to DFA and is releasing a 12" called Equal Dreams which is a track featuring vocals by Solange Knowles. Blood Orange aka Devonté Hynes contributes to the flip, "Asleep with the Lights On". Stream both songs below.

LCD Soundsystem guitarist Phil Mossman and Will Bates are Fall On Your Sword, and the duo are preparing to release the DFA debut too. The new single features extended versions of tracks from the soundtrack of Another Earth. Stream both songs, with a video for one too, below.

And last but not least, Holy Ghost hit the road as part of the Identity Festival in middle August, tagging PNC Bank Arts Center on 8/14 and Jones Beach Ampitheater on 8/21. Tickets are still available for both dates (they are no longer $20 though).

All tour dates and those Shit Robot mixes are below.

Shit Robot was a great opener for LCD @ T5. Solid album too.

I thought this was DFA 1979 news, not that litigious fatty James Murphy. Fuck fatty McCheeseburger and the whole Hee Haw gang; they can all go huff nitrous and talk about the "good ol' days".

I'll say it again, Chinese Democracy is a damn GOOD album.
