Shit Feeling

The latest single from Marcus Lambkin , aka Shit Robot, is a brilliant followup to last years Simple Things 12" .
Dark piano Loops echoing in Ward C of Shutter Island
are paired with the vocals of Saheer Umar (of House of House infamy) and some jacking bassy synths to form one Mad House track.....zing (i'm really reaching here, like Dr. Cawley and his two day psychiatric role play....jeeezus)

While 'simple things' had Ian Svenonius ad-libbing a nursery rhyme straight out of Sarah Conner's diary, 'I Got A Feeling' has Saheer belting out a heavy lovers lament. Its starts off very restrained, but after a long build all the elements get set loose Andrew Laeddis style.

Listen to a clip below:

Holy Mashup Batman ! (black van?)

Since the Avalanches threw Wham! over Zdarlight, I don't think i've really gotten into any 'mashups'.

But 24hrs ago Holy Ghost took their track I Will Come Back and blended it with Yearning by new DFA label mates Black Van.

As far as mashups go, this is pretty brilliant

Saurapod at the disco lock in

New release from a ficticous man, on a label named after a ficticous dinosaur.

(thats right, a brontosaurus is actually just an apatasaurus, there was a mix up in skeletons at some point that led to the belief that there was a new species of sauropod, BUT, there aint, and any third grader can tell you that, doye. )

Keeping things in the vein of a more retro styled deep house sound is the Arto Mwambe M.O., and Love Lift is no exception. The synths tread a fine line between fromage and brilliant homage (much like that sentence) , and the vocals are completely over the top and perfect for this production.

The Osborne remix on the flip adds in a killer bassline that adds a warm strut to the original deep sound, definitely my pick of the three versions.

out now on the Brontosaurus Label

you can listen ad finum to both versions on the Myspace
