Funky Friday Is Casual Friday

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us


The ever excellent NYC label DFA Records has just released Compilation #2. It's a 3 CD set with two unmixed discs and one mixed disc (mixed by Tim Sweeney and Tim Goldsworthy). It includes most of the vinyl 12" releases from the last year or two, some B sides and some unreleased stuff. As always, it's great - unrelenting disco beats, spiky guitars and enough experimentation to keep things interesting. Black Leotard Front's Casual Friday is a crazed 15 minutes of disco - yes, fifteen minutes. A stellar groove, reminiscent of Playgroup, it builds up, breaks down, spaces out and features some amusingly sexy lyrics, repeated over and over again. It's fabulously funky and weird and arty all at the same time. Fantastic!
