Tip of the cap to Max Joseph and the Red Bull Music Academy for producing this documentary on the excellent independent outfit, DFA Records. Narrated by comedian Marc Maron, this is a great insight into the independent label that’s released 141 12’’ singles and 34 albums since 2001. Shed some light on whether DFA is a “dumb fucking acronym” for “Disco for assholes”, what people look like when they dance to DFA, and how 12 years ago the label began making dorky white people accept dance music in the indie rock world.
It’s impossible to rate such great music, but here’s three of our favourite DFA records to date. Happy 12th Birthday…
LCD Soundsystem: Get Innocuous!
Hercules & The Love Affair: Blind
The Juan Maclean: Happy House
