Earlier this month, DFA stalwart Shit Robot, aka Dublin native Marcus Lambkin, dropped his great new single “End Of The Trail”, featuring Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor on vocals. Now, the track gets a trippy video, which was directed and animated by Kevin McGloughlin. As he says: “This video was created using a technique I developed which I have nicknamed ‘Digi-Cut’ after the technique from which it is derived ‘Strata-Cut’.”

“End Of The Trail” will appear on Shit Robot’s upcoming third album “What Follows”, the follow-up to 2014’s “We Got A Love” LP, set to drop on May 6th via DFA Records. The new record marks a departure in Lambkin’s process – a simple, but fundamental one: getting away from the computer. Pre-order it here.

YACHT, the Portland-via-Los-Angeles electro-pop duo of Jona Bechtolt and Claire L. Evans, have shared this fine remix of their track “Ringtone” by Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard. In his own words: “I love YACHT; I think their music and their live performances are mesmerising, and they are just plain good people. For this release, I wanted to make an old-fashioned Chicago banger as if the Eurythmics were remixed by DJ Pierre.” The track “Ringtone” appears on the pair’s new album “I Thought The Future Would Be Cooler”, out now via Downtown Records.
