With a name like Shit Robot and debut album cheekily titled From the Cradle to the Rave, unsuspecting listeners might peg Irish electronic musician Marcus Lambkin as a novelty, but just a few minutes listening to his sublimely funky productions should provide enough proof that Lambkin's sense of humor does nothing to detract from his house and disco bonafides. A close collaborator of LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy, Lambkin is playing in New York as he prepares to release his second album, We Got A Love, another vocal-heavy set featuring high-voltage contributions from singers varying from the Rapture's Luke Jenner to multitalented comedian Reggie Watts.
