DFA’s resident disco duo Holy Ghost will return later this year with Dynamics, the follow-up to the group’s stellar 2011 self-titled debut, and though the album doesn’t have an official release date yet, it does have an excellent eight minute banger of a single called “Dumb Disco Ideas.” The song comes with a deceptively simple time-lapse video as well, but the real attraction is the track’s sweltering, dance floor ready beat.
With a title that could serve as a pithy critique of Random Access Memories—sorry, Daft Punk—the track finds the band deploying all its biggest, goofiest retro moves. It’s got sparkly synths, pounding percussion, robo vocoder and pithy lyrics—”Cruel summer for cruel lovers/This bodega’s got a club in the basement” is an early highlight—but most of all it’s fun. Really fun. Check it out below.
