Hercules & Love Affair
Andrew Butler, the driving force behind this collective, takes his disco seriously. The Colorado native clashed with some of his professors at Sarah Lawrence College who were quick to dismiss dance music as a form not worth studying. His reverence for it, however, led to the formation of the Brooklyn-based Hercules and Love Affair in 2007. DJ Butler creates the beats and most of the music, and also writes the Greek mythology-steeped lyrics. His collaborators include Antony Hegarty of Antony and the Johnsons, as well as NYC scenesters Nomi and Kim Ann Foxman. Tim Goldsworthy of DFA Records produced the group's debut album in 2008. The group's follow-up was issued on Moshi Moshi in 2011. ~ Justin Stewart
