Daft Punk who?!?!? DFA duo Holy Ghost! released their new single and video entitled "Dumb Disco Ideas" just one day after the French Disco robots set the internets ablaze by announcing they were streaming their new record for free yesterday. It's really more of a confident disco idea than a dumb one, and with good reason: the fantastic track is brimming with energy and begs to be played at the loudest possible volume to a dance floor of sweaty revelers. It's certainly an intriguing peak into their new record Dynamics, out this fall.
The LCD Soundsystem-indebted song gets a great, minimalistic video directed by Ben Fries features some cool lights "dancing" to the tune while 24 hours pass on a NYC rooftop. I think Kendrick Lamar may have spoken to soon on this "Death To Molly" thing... I'm having a hard time containing my self listening to this song while drinking coffee.
Holy Ghost! is about begin a large tour that includes festival appearances and a few dates opening for New Order, check out the list below and go get freaky deaky in person y'all. Holy Ghost! also took part recently in a charming short film documentary about DFA Records first 12 years, watch it here.
