DFA’s Shit Robot Unveils “Do That Dance”

DFA's Shit Robot Unveils "Do That Dance" Video Feat. Nancy Whang of LCD Soundsystem, New LP Out 3/18 on DFA records. Shit Robot play March 8 in Cork Ireland

With a little more than a week to go before releasing his sophomore full-length LP, Shit Robot aka Marcus Lambkin, has shared the video for “Do That Dance.” Staring the song’s vocalist Nancy Whang (LCD Soundsystem, Juan MacLean), the video finds the DFA-mainstay singing in front of a rapid tapestry of 16-bit video game clips, driving footage, and archival soccer matches. Watch the video here. Shit Robot is also heading out on a world tour, including his recently announced dates in Australia.

The video comes as Shit Robot preps the release of his latest album, We Got A Love out March 18th on DFA Records. Recorded in Germany and New York, We Got A Love features an array of guests, including DFA’s Nancy Whang, Museum of Love, and Luke Jenner — plus hip-house hero Lidell Townsell and Australian singer Holly Backler.

It wasn’t, you’ll be pleased to hear, a difficult second album. “It wasn’t as tricky as I thought it was going to be,” said Lambkin. “I think my first record was pretty special because there was a lot of lucky coincidences and a lot of being in the right place at the right time, so I didn’t try to repeat it. I just tricked my brain into just making stuff and not trying to follow up the first.” The new album’s guest list is as strong as 2010’s debut, From The Cradle To The Rave, something that pleases Lambkin. “For the guests on the record, it’s a mix of just reaching out to some people that I admire and thought might make a good collaboration.” “One of the greatest things about making this record was getting to work with Lidell Townsell. He’s such a great and positive guy. I’ve been a big fan for the longest time. “Nu-Nu” was a huge record for me and all my friends back in ’92. He doesn’t usually sing on other people’s records, so this was a huge honor for me.”

The LP’s distinctive artwork was created in collaboration with Irish graffiti artist, Maser. “I picked Maser for the artwork because i’m a big fan of his work, but also because he’s Irish and he does a lot of great work in and for Dublin. His pieces are all over the city and they are always positive and a breath of fresh air for a city that’s been going through some tough times.”
