Shit Robot recently wowed a packed house at Terminal 5, opening for and jamming with LCD Soundsystem for the group’s last handful of shows. Now the group is looking to expand, releasing a new EP and planning an upcoming tour.
Robot’s first EP, Losing My Patience, will be out on April 18th both digitally and on vinyl. It features remixes from Hot Chip and Unabombers.
If you can’t wait a week (seriously?), Shit Robot will accommodate. The group has released the single “Losing My Patience” for free thanks to DFA Records. Grab your copy right here!
Hot Chip’s Alex Taylor has remixed Shit Robot’s track “Losing My Patience” (which he conveniently lent vocals to on the original). The remix is part of the new Shit Robot single, which features the original version of “Losing My Patience.”
Along with Hot Chip’s remix, the single features a Unabombers’ remix and a dub version. The single will be out April 18th on DFA records. You can hear the Hot Chip remix below.
Shit Robot debuted a visual-heavy live performance at this year’s SXSW, dubbed the “Shit Robot Show”. He continued the moment throughout March, stopping by Terminal 5 to help send of LCD Soundsystem last week.
LA duo Kisses are only a week past the release of their debut LP, The Heart of The Nightlife, but they found some time to remix the first song off the album, “Kisses.” Titled the “Electric Sunset Remix,” the LA band consisting of Zinzi Edmundson and Jesse Kivel have managed to evoke the feeling of Miami Beach while sounding like a younger and more attractive version of Hot Chip. In fact, Zinzi could give any girl in indie a run for the crown. As far as the music goes, “Kisses” flashes bright colors at you, rounded and full, that bounce around and calmly pulsate in an effortless synchronicity. Even with the high hat synth beat driving along, the track is a slow burn that at once can make you tired and dreamy.
Give it a listen below:
The godfather of DFA is certainly gearing up for the release of his debut solo album. Due out Sept 21, Shit Robot has the new video for the track “Tuff Enuff” ready for your viewing pleasure.
The lead track off From The Cradle To The Rave the “Tuff Enuf” video features a stop-motion animation visual story which shows off the different influences heard on the entire album, capturing the fun feeling of the track.
From The Cradle To The Rave is due out Sept 21 and not a day sooner as fans have been waiting for this album almost 20 years.
Shit Robot will be heading across the pond for a string of dates with LCD Soundsystem and Hot Chip, but keep your ears to the ground for the U.S. tour dates.
