Guerilla Toss
Twisted Crystal

Weeee’re not gonna take it! No, we ain’t gonna take it! We’re not gonna take it! Any… ... Whoops, might have misread the title of this one. Twisted CRYSTAL is Boston disco-rockers Guerilla Toss’s third LP for DFA...view item »

Planningtorock
Powerhouse

Planningtorock are planningtorelease a new LP for the first time since 2014. Powerhouse finds the Berlin-based artist back on DFA Records and turning in ten pieces of stormy queer-pop. Single ‘Transome’ is a winning combination of How To Dress Well-style r&b and din...view item »

Crooked Man
Crooked House

Too much low-key, cool and detached, smooth and sleek house music around these days? Well, if that’s what you reckon, then Crooked Man has the answer: a big album of big, booming, over-the-top electro-house. Lots of energy and sweet stretched grooves here on Crooked House, which is released by DFA of all labels....view item »

CCFX
The Remixes

After their The Cure-to-a-baggy-beat debut EP dropped back in 2017, CCFX (a CC Dust/Trans FX collaboration) return to the scene of the crime to serve up four versions of tunes from their eponymous debut. The Remixes, it must be said, is an occasion where the re-rubs are...view item »

Guerilla Toss
Flood Dosed

Originally released in 2015 on cassette and digital formats only, now DFA revisit Flood Dosed for a vinyl edition with a bonus track for extra spice. Noisy art rock performed with feverish aplomb, fragmented glitched out guitar licks and synth bloops create a schizophrenic kraut groove with a Sonic Youth tonal disregard...view item »

Perel
Hermetica

Perel's debut album manages to strike the balance between post-punk and disco that only the better artists on DFA's roster manage to. The German producer is a proud fan of Eurythmics and 2 Unlimited and she has the comfort with more poppy melod...view item »

Essaie Pas
New Path

Montreal electronic duo Essaie Pas are back with their fifth album (their second on DFA Records) ‘New Path’, a riff on Philip K. Dick’s dystopian sci-fi novel A Scanner Darkly. Their particular brand of coldwave songwriting lends itself beautifully to the doomy subject matter at hand, the disembodied c...view item »

Marcus Marr
Familiar 5

Marcus Marr had a collection of rock and soul records which were gradually infiltrated by acid house records. This set the blueprint for his music. His stratospheric dance music is underpinned by funky basslines and oozing synths. His new EP for DFA, Familiar 5 is at times reminiscent of D...view item »

NHK yx Koyxen
Exit Entrance

This is most welcome news: lopsided dance miscreant Kohei Matsunaga is back! His new record for the NHK yx Koyxen record is also his first for DFA, offering the usual medley of melody, abstraction and frantic programmed drumwork. With his love of pitching anything and everything, it's hard to know what to predict beyon...view item »

Dawn People
The Star Is Your Future

Dawn People's category defying character is no surprise given the wide ranging influences that have fed its creation. Opening with hip-hop tempo beats, jazz flute and distinct Avalanches style plunderphonics, the palette twists and grows over the album, introducing warm synths, loungey grooves and additional madness to the mix....view item »

LCD Soundsystem
American Dream

You can have a strange relationship with LCD Soundsystem, a bit like Marmite - you either love them, or hate them. This ten track release, entitled American Dream, is no doubt a great collection of tracks for any LCD fan but might not be for everyone. Available on Vinyl LP and CD on DFA / Columbia.  ...view item »

Eric Copeland
Goofballs

Of noisemakers Black Dice but at this point probably more notorious for his solo efforts as a dissonant dancer, Eric Copeland once again graces our doors with a record of off-kilter shenanigans. Goofballs continues to combine his economical sound sources of knackered drum m...view item »

Ninos Du Brasil
Aromobates NBD

Ninos Du Brazil make admirably intense percussion-dominated music that isn’t afraid to hammer your mind unceasingly. Though this isn’t industrial techno, more a blend of techno and the music of Brazilian carnivals. The Aromobates NBD 12”, out in a limited edition from DFA, represents their powerful sou...view item »

Guerilla Toss
GT Ultra

Guerilla Toss set a psychedelic tone immediately and very clearly with the artwork for GT Ultra, by housing the album in a sleeve of vintage acid blotter designs. Heavy. The music is pretty lysergic too, cramming in slightly too many elements into the busy, energetic mix of their songs, in a pleasingly wild way. Get hea...view item »

The Juan Maclean
Can You Ever Really Know Somebody

As far as straight up, simple and retro dance music goes, not an awful lot do it better these days than The Juan Maclean. On this occasion, his bulging and bouncy club cut Can You Ever Really Know Somebody is sharp enough to turn the finest of blades green with envy. Nancy Whang's vocals are simpl...view item »

Delia Gonzalez
Horse Follows Darkness

A follow up to her previous record ‘In Remembrance’, Horse Follows Darkness is the second dark and mind-bending release from Delia Gonzalez. Although this record has a lot to live up to, the use of deep string drones and simple melodies that follow a straightforward narrative allow for Gonzalez to express he...view item »

Various
DFA Compilation#1

Originally released in 2003, you know, when everyone used CDs. Now revisiting their first compilation, which put them down as a more than credible source of new productions, DFA are releasing it on vinyl for the first time. Featuring several unique visions of dance music from The Rapture, LCD Sound System, ...view item »

Shit Robot
Lose Control

Since being added to the DFA roster in 2002 Shit Robot has put out over 20 releases with the label, maybe not so shit after all, eh? Lose Control is a cheeky acid-house number, featureing vocals from Nancy Whang, leading on a bed of 909 shuffles and acidic bass-blurts. 12” features two reworks by ...view item »

Nils Bech
Echo

Leftfield pop music, that moves away from the city and into the wilderness. Teaming up with young Norwegian producer Drippin’ snaps Nils Bech into an upfront force. When he is known for his ethereal, rapturous avantgarde pop songs, Echo is not so much a departure from this, but a focus and succinc...view item »

Factory Floor
25 25

Eagerly-awaited second full-length album from Factory Floor, now operating as a duo. 25 25 continues the group’s journey straight to the heart of the dancefloor, with a tightly stripped-down, boldly minimal approach. Synths and drums and vocals alike are strictly controlled for maximum industrial efficiency. CD or...view item »

Crooked Man
Crooked Man

Light and bass weighty house tunes from Crooked Man, cuts through the deep and serious straight to the dancefloor. Having released the first album on Warp with Cabaret Voltaire’s Richard H Kirk and run the legendary Jive Turkey nights with Sheffield don Winston Hazel and a...view item »

Eric Copeland
Black Bubblegum

Black Dice dude Eric Copeland continues to create music that somehow sounds completely messed-up and rather poppy: Black Bubblegum indeed. This new album is particularly dub-focused, skanking up and down and round and round, festooned with all sorts of weird slices of sound. CD or pink-coloured vinyl on...view item »

Factory Floor
Dial Me In

I’d forgotten about Factory Floor. They had that debut album come out in 2013, the cover was everywhere and their mix of industrial, techno and house was making some waves with the BBC and that lot lapping it up. They’ve been quiet since then and lost a member. Dial Me In sees them return with a plon...view item »

Shit Robot
What Follows

Shit Robot returns with a third full-length LP. What Follows is a real analogue synth album, discovered organically through playing around with equipment. The results are dancefloor-ready electro-pop, and A-list guests on the record include Alexis Taylor of Hot Chip and Nancy Wh...view item »

Essaie Pas
Demain est une autre nuit

Essaie Pas are an electro-disco-pop duo hailing from Montreal. Debut full-length Demain est une autre nuit is laden with atmosphere whilst also carrying great momentum: enough, in fact, that they supported Factory Floor on a US tour. French-language vocals keep their distance, while the rhythmic pulse k...view item »

Guerilla Toss
Eraser Stargazer

Eraser Stargazer is the new album by Boston five-piece Guerilla Toss. It follows on from their 2104 debut album Gay Disco and their 2015 EP Flood Dosed which won the band praise from the likes of Henry Rollins and Busy P of Ed Banger Records. The band ...view item »

Larry Gus
I Need New Eyes

Versatile Greek sampler and composer Panagiotis Melidis, better known as Larry Gus, invites us to drink in the infinite musicality of all the sounds around us. On his new album I Need New Eyes, with its rather painful album cover, Larry combines a rich multitude of samples with complex rhythms and catch...view item »

Slim Twig
Thank You For Stickin' With Twig

Lonesome rockabilly artiste Slim Twig is still confounding people with psychedelic swirls on Thank You For Stickin' With Twig. Hey folks, it looks countrified, but what you're getting is the usual sonic liftoff of keyboards and guitars intersecting, compressed into the nostalgic sounds of the cassett...view item »

Eric Copeland
Remixes

In which Black Dice roller Eric Copeland has tracks from his last solo album, Joke In The Hole, remixed and reimagined by the likes of Larry Gus, Fhloston Paradigm, Anthony Naples, and most excitingly, the inimitably Panda Bear, who add...view item »

Prinzhorn Dance School
Home Economics

Prinzhorn Dance School crafted this collection with a first-take kind of ethos, so that Home Economics does not lack in freshness. Released on DFA, this carries many of the familiar hallmarks of that label (such as a tight, funky rhythm section), but comes from this side of the Atlantic, giving a different angle....view item »

Delia Gonzalez
In Remembrance

‘In Remembrance’ is a multimedia project by highly acclaimed, New York based contemporary artist Delia Gonzalez. Originally from Miami, Gonzalez comes from a background of guerilla dance and theatre groups and began working on collaborative, multimedia, multi-discipline projects with synth composer Gavin Russom after re-locating to N...view item »

Marcus Marr
Brown Sauce

Marcus Marr certainly deserves praise for getting none-more-New-York label DFA to release a record named after Brown Sauce, a profoundly English condiment. A good melding of aesthetics. The track itself is pretty damn fine, a thick kick drum sound and a low bassline leading the charge. A sound that leads you towards good times....view item »

Eric Copeland
Ms Pretzel

Eric Copeland helps make chaotic noise for Brooklyn's treasured Black Dice, and has also been one half of Terrestrial Tones, a project started with Animal Collective's near always screaming folk freak Avey Tare.  'Ms Pretzel' is something a little different if you're only familiar with Copeland from those two projects: an EP of 4/...view item »

Dan Bodan
Soft

On 'Soft', Dan Bodan takes dated electronic textures and makes them rich and crystal-clear, mixing them in under his articulate vocals, which sound like James Blake given something to be melodramatic about. The result is an emotive electro-pop record from a serious singer-songwriter who understands how foreceful even the cheesiest textures can b...view item »

Museum Of Love
Museum Of Love

Museum of Love is the work of LCD Soundsystem member Pat Mahoney and Dennis McNanny, who come together to make a characteristically danceable record of shaken beats, loopy synths and deep, David Byrne-like vocals. Their self-titled record shows off the sounds you would expect from this duo in a confident and assured fashion, with Mahoney leaving...view item »

The Juan Maclean
In A Dream

The Juan Maclean have been around some time now and always on DFA records.  They've been around long enough to see various trends such as  electroclash, disco-punk, electro-disco come and go yet are still at it doing their own thing. There are certainly house and techno influences in this, lots of Moroder style squiggly synths and...view item »

LCD Soundsystem
The Long Goodbye: Live The Final Show NYC

You got the fat guy in a t-shirt doing all the singing. Although the records released by LCD Soundsystem may sound like James Murphy, the self proclaimed fat guy, is also doing all the playing, anybody lucky enough to see the band play live would tell you they very much are a band. Possibly the best live ban...view item »

Oh! Here’s the record that many of us have been waiting for for literally years. Yes, after what seems like an age of just putting out limited singles and EPs Factory Floor have finally taken the plunge and done a full-length album. My knowledge about the dance musics is limited, and countless column inc...view item »

Eric Copeland
Joke In The Hole

Prinzhorn Dance School
Clay Class

Prinzhorn Dance School are a tough sell. In an era of London Grandma style shimmery, 'xx' rip-off twaddle, PDS are as rough as it comes. Guitars are sparse and wiry like an early Fall record, drums clatter with precision whilst leaving holes in the sound, an aesthetic of les...view item »

Lyrically this new LCD Soundsystem single kinda reminds me of the old Talking Heads song 'The Girls Want to Be With the Girls' with it's the Drunk Girls do this...drunk boys do that gender comparisons...that and the fact that it sounds sorta like a disco punk version of Dexy's Midnight Runners or Squeeze makes for an inviting list...view item »

Wow, wow and triple wow. Pylon were the most insanely brilliant of the early '80s new wavers to emerge out of Athens, GA (see also REM, B-52's, Love Tractor), and a couple of years ago to their great credit DFA reissued their first two albums 'Grate' and 'Chomp', hopefully bringing a whole new set of admirers to ...view item »

LCD Soundsystem
London Sessions

This album takes LCD Sound System's studio-perfect album recordings and puts them in a live setting (albeit still in a studio). This breathes some new life into their songs. The live performances have a little more edge and a little more excitement. The album starts off with a tantalising "Us V. Them" and doesn't let up from there. My favourite ...view item »

Free Energy
Stuck On Nothing

When music isn't challenging, it better be fun and catchy if it wants attention. Stuck on Nothing aims for the latter path, but it does so rather unapologetically. It doesn't aim to re-invent a genre, but to continue down a familiar path that would be less enjoyable if altered. Most of the elements feel immediately recognisable, the reference po...view item »

Pylon
Chomp More

Absolutely stunning second album by Pylon now re-issued by DFA.  This has never sounded better  -a wonderful mix of scratchy post punk, minimal almost ESG like compositions, hugely danceable skittering rhythms, and lop sided semi instrumental pop tunes.  This is the album that took the original Pylon template as seen on their debut '...view item »
