Tag Archives: Death From Above 1979


Alright, here you go.  “Trainwreck 1979″, the sweltering new single from Death From Above 1979, is just the wake up call you’ve been waiting for. No Disco fluff.  No Deep House snooze fest.  And no Big Room bullshit. Just that trademark DFA 1979 sound, complete with heavy bass fuzz, pounding drums & howling vocals that your ears have been longing for lo these many years.  The key missing ingredient for many current day rock bands is that they don’t know how to keep their edge when factoring in the dance element to their music.  This has never been, nor will ever be the case for DFA 1979.  “Trainwreck 1979″ is a another kick-you-in-the-crotch, spit-in-your-face Dance Punk classic.

Ten years after their first album, “You’re A Woman, I’m A Machine” was released, DFA 1979 will release their follow up album, “Physical World” on Septemeber 9th via Last Gang Records.  GET FIRED UP.

(Wait, does this mean we can hold out hope for follow up albums from Mylo and The Avalanches, too?!?)

Death From Above 1979 – Sexy Results (MSTRKRFT Edition)

JFK remixes JFK! Some long-time readers might be turning your noses at me for posting this obvious classic, but newer readers need to know what’s up. Believe me when I say every time the DJ dropped this disco ****jam back in the day (and by ‘the day’ I mean 2005), things would start getting X-rated on the dancefloor. Still one of my favorite songs ever.
