Prinzhorn Dance School - Shit Robot & Optimo (Espacio) Remixes

$10.99

Prinzhorn Dance School’s spartan sonics have often lead to some hand-wringing when trying to play out their records ‘in the club’. In the first 7 years of their existance, there was a sole club-friendly remix in their entire catalog. It is for these reasons that we’re really stoked to announce that we now have a second.

DFA veteran Shit Robot takes the track “Reign” from their imminently released third album “Home Economics” and turns it into a deep, dark floor-filler. The band’s pleading vocals dive in and out of a throbbing bassline, with new robotic percussion seamlessly blending with the band’s original bangs and clangs.

The flip features that previously alluded to Optimo (Espaco) mix of You Are The Space Invader - previously only available commercially in digital form, this is the
first (slightly) wider vinyl release of this classic remix. An edition of 500 hand-stamped and numbered white label copies, not to be pressed again for another 7 years or so. Probably.

Tracklist:

  1. Reign (Shit Robot Remix)
  2. You Are The Space Invader (An Optimo (Espacio) Remix)

Slim Twig - Cannabis (Limited Edition 7")

$4.20

An edition of 200 7" singles in dead-stock leafy sleeves. Includes a digital copy in a few weeks, once we master it. Stay tuned.

Ahead of his forthcoming album for DFA Records this July, Slim Twig is sharing a very special cover of Serge Gainsbourg’s “Cannabis.” The ‘Cannabis’ 7” will ship on 4/20, ahem, April 20th and a free download of the “Cannabis” single will be available to stream at weedtransfer.com. The ‘Cannabis’ 7” follows A Hound At The Hem, released last year by DFA. As a concept album exploring the troubling and the taboo and themes like the transformative power of lust, A Hound At The Hem could be interpreted as an echolike response to Serge Gainsbourg and Jean-Claude Vannier's Histoire De Melody Nelson. Hear more about Slim Twig’s upcoming projects for DFA below: 

Happy 4/20. We’ve had a few pass by without a hint of any new Twig to pack pipe with. Not that the pot holiday has been synonymous with my work, but I’ve had an obsession these past few years trying to engineer tunes that might emulate the tactile engagement we feel with music when stoned, without having to spark up (not that it’ll hurt in any case). Today is as good a day as any to let you know those experiments will be released on DFA this year.

My cover of Serge Gainsbourg's ‘Cannabis’ composition is not emblematic of this technique. I’m not quite ready to unveil everything to you just yet. It lends itself better as a national anthem of where I’ve set up shop. Sometimes a feeling creeps up on you that words can’t transcend. My take on ‘Cannabis’ is a moment like this. 

I thank mister Gainsbourg for yet another cosmic assist. I also thank the U.S. Girl for her impassioned vocals, Steve Chahley for his master mixing and all the other wonderful collaborators who have helped to serve up my vision.

My forthcoming album is the kind of record that will ripen under the enhancement of your imagination. It is my hope that by imbibing the substance of this ‘Cannabis’ 7" you will find yourself in exactly the condition to appreciate what I’ve rolled up next.

As ever,

ST.

April 20th, 2015.

Toronto, Canada.
