Eclectic guests keep it electric

We Got a Love (DFA)

Shit Robot: We Got A Love
Shit Robot: We Got A Love
Harmony: Man versus machine

Marcus Lambkin's connections with LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy and DFA Records ensured his debut album as Shit Robot found itself on constant rotation in some of the world's coolest joints back in 2010.

Now, the Germany-based Dubliner is back with another sophisticated electronica collection that draws on the support of some hipster-approved friends. LCD Soundsystem vocalist Nancy Whang sings laconically on the standout Do that Dance while The Rapture's Luke Jenner is on blistering form on potent Feels Real.

The eclectic nature of the guests keeps things interesting, with Reggie Watts and comparative newcomer Holly Backler putting in a good day's shift.

But it's Lambkin's seductive, minimal music that keeps that pulls the whole enterprise together.

Key Tracks: Do that Dance; Feels Real
