Compilation #2





The production duo of Tim Goldsworthy and James Murphy (A.K.A. The DFA) made a name for themselves around the turn of the century by producing and remixing some of NYC's hottest emerging young talent, including the Rapture, Radio 4, The Juan Maclean and LCD Soundsystem. Their own DFA records has become an epicenter for hipster-adored releases, many of which made their way to stores in limited quantities as 12" and uber-cool 7" offerings. For those not able to make their way to their local indie record store, The DFA have put together a three-disc compilation CD featuring some of these rare and exclusive tracks. The first two discs include songs by J.O.Y., The Juan Maclean, The Rapture, Delia Gonzalez & Gavin Russom, Pixeltan, Black Dice and LCD Soundsystem. The third disc is a special mix put together by DJ Tim Sweeney of NYC mix show "Beats In Space" and DFA co-founder Tim Goldsworthy that features all of the bands listed above. The DFA's signature lo fi post-punk dance production is something most people either love with all their heart, or just don't get. If you fall into the later category, then this might not be for you. However, fans of The DFA (or any of the bands on the comp) will salivate over this compilation like a pack of hungery wolves over a poor defenseless injured deer separated from its family and lost deep in the woods, or like a guy who became a vegetarian only to make his girlfriend happy over a rib eye steak, or like a sci fi geek over a vintage Boba Fett figurine still in its original packaging. You get the idea, right?
