Makes perfect sense DFA reissued this, as it basically invents a huge part of their aesthetic 20+ years before the fact. There are many great disco not disco records, but this one really embodies that detached, impossibly cool vibe. Closer to disco proper than 99 or Ze, ethereal instead of dubby, gliding instead of skittery and frenetic like a lot of dancier postpunk, but definitely still weird. Still You is the ultimate outre sex jam not sex jam. Some of these people moved in the same circles as Arthur Russell, and while this isn't as banging as Dinosaur L or Loose Joints it fits right in with some of his more laidback but still danceable work. One of those impossible records that seems to exist completely outside of any time period, like Camino del Sol. Highly recommended.

Both tracks stunning. A sense of innocence. Completely left-field. Goosebumps material.
