Freshies: Daft Punk Random Access Memories
Sooo…in case some how you missed it, Daft Punk’s much-anticipated album, Random Access Memories was “leaked” this week and early reviews are nothing short of rad-tastic. The Robots brought a whole new element to the synthesizer scene and worked with every big talent in the biz. From Pharrell, to Panda Bear, DJ Falcon, to world renowned composer’s and musicians, Paul Williams, Chilly Gonzales, and Nile Rogers. Daft flew in the most skilled artists for quick stays in Paris to collaborate and make sweet, sweet, music. Random Access Memories is the most thought-out and instrumentally influenced album from the duo, and with all the hype that came with this release they didn’t disappoint. The Robots essentially re-invented their signature sound creating a record that can’t be imitated. Loaded with kick drums, 80’s disco, methodically-tuned rhythms, and lets not forget all things electro Daft Punk once again proved why they are considered one of the most influential bands in music history. Recommended tracks for when you get your hands on a download are: Instant Crush, Get Lucky, and Lose Yourself to Dance.
