Watch a Great Documentary on the History of DFA Records

May 8, 2013 | Andy Cush

This is what a documentary about DFA should look like: good-natured, energetic, no portentous interviews about meaning and “lasting significance.” 12 Years of DFA: Too Old To Be New, Too New To Be Classic qucikly chronicles the history and current affairs of the stupidly consistent NYC label founded on the principles of  having a good time, touching on the business’s daily workings, the bands it represents, the venerated “DFA sound,” and of course, James Murphy and LCD Soundsystem. And if all that’s not enough, the thing is narrated by this fuckin’ guy. Just watch.
