‘The first in a series of definitive short films from the Red Bull Music Academy, we turn our attention to DFA: the iconic NYC record label that got the indie kids to dance.’
If you like dancing and you like indie music then DFA pretty much was the label that released all your favourite bands of the 2000′s. LCD Soundsystem, The Rapture, Hercules and Love Affair, Holy Ghost, Jaun Mclean and YACHT were among the artists that were released by the three men who formed DFA, James Murphy, Tim Goldsworthy, and Jonathan Galkin. This video is more of an education than a documentary.

Right before Matthew Mole’s show at The Assembly recently we did a friendsofmine video with him, which lead into a live snippet of the same track, Autumn.

Everybody’s favourite little coffee spot on Long Street is trying new things. Now open in the evenings, Yourstruly is serving up a fantastic range of pizzas, with a pretty decent price tag. There’re a couple of set pizzas on the menu, or you can make your own. I tried one out this week, and it was delicious. They’re also stocking a selection of wine & beer for the thirsty.
