From The Cradle To The Raveâ€™ is the debut album from Shit Robot, aka Marcus Lambkin. As an integral part of the DFA story over the last decade, Marcus has created a record that involves the whole family, with James Murphy, Alexis Taylor, Juan MacLean and more contributing to a record that is a joyride through the history of dance music.
Itâ€™s a record that is a product of years spent in clubs, clubs across the world. From Dublin to New York, itâ€™s drenched in house, Krautrock, techno, punk, electro and more. Brilliant vocal contributions from Alexis Taylor on â€˜Losing My Patienceâ€™ is followed by Nancy Whang on â€˜Take Em Upâ€™ are just two highlights from what is one of the stand out albums of the year so far.
Itâ€™s a record that is more than the sum of its parts. Though heavy with collaborations, it is most definitely a Shit Robot record through and through.
