Daft Punk – Random Access Memory – Review

We had the pleasure of hearing the new Daft Punk album this weekend in our HQ. It’s a great piece of art and the tracks are something for summer picnics, outdoor festivals, and weekend adventures. Our biggest thought about the album was “reception.” To listen not critic….to embrace not judge…..to listen not hear…..This one is another solid work from the duo and takes the listener on a balanced electric, human, and instrumental experience. We enjoyed the whole album and there are some tunes that you will most likely here for years to come in remakes, collabos, commercials, and festivals. It’s nothing new for the classic sound of Daft Punk to dominate the sound waves. You can see what we thought about the listening party we had below. And you can download it here to have your own point of view.

 

 

The game of love – soft melodic tones keep the smooth beat rolling through an array of morning music and “baby making” music….the keys make you smile and the track keeps it warm like a summer’s day…

giorgio by moroder – featuring some commentary from Giovanni Giorgio aka “Giorgio” and breaks into some tasty beats that rise till the rhythm starts to spark up…..seems like an toned down “Tron” soundtrack piece…..something that should be remade by many big names this summer…

within – the piano intro keep you waiting for the beat and then the lyrics sweep you away for a journey along Daft Punk’s cornucopia of sound….another great one for an evening with the ladies….one of the easier tracks on the album…

instant crush – the high school memories and the “crush” from the past come to mind…..steady with the beat and Punk’s touch on excitement and climax keep you wandering….dropping those guitar aspects in the end keep the ballad never ending…

lose yourself to dance – that sound you’ve waited for…..the dance of Daft is coming back in 2013!!!! Pharrell chimes in with the unforgettable voice to the background of the “bigger, stronger, faster” voice…..a track we will hear remade all year….

touch – “long long ago in a galaxy far far away……..there was Daft Punk”…….human voices and computer sounds bring together a track that brings space travel to life….this one was on repeat in the office once the ladies heard it….horns were are favorite 😉

get lucky – if you have been under a rock or in a cave…..this is the track that was leaked earlier last month and played everywhere from SXSW to WMC to South America to beyond……Pharrell and Daft Punk keep it Gatsby with this one….

beyond – like chariots taking off into the battle field….Daft Punk gives you something to jam with…something to travel with…something special….one of the highest ranked tracks by the GGStaff…old 80’s jam with that new edm keyboard touch…

motherboard – the technological jam session of the two OG’s of edm…..strings, wind instruments, and the kick drum all bring this together before they blow it wide open for…..”reading rainbow on acid,” as one of our interns called it…

fragments of time – killer vocals and the right beat make for a classic feel and solid groove…jazzy breaks and crispy 80’s glam exude from this one…..grab your sequence and get ready to boogie!!!!!!

doin’ it right – the samples in this track will be heard for years to come…..Daft gave you the formula for the succesful party “everyone will be dancing and be doin’ it right” — take notes and start jamming!! Watch out for this one if the snow industry movies…great motto for the future….

contact – like astronauts in the cosmos…..WE HAVE CONTACT!!!!! This track is great build up…should sound great live…and has the fundamentals of sound rocking hard in every beat….we aren’t sure what it sounds like to be blasted into space….but this might be similar…

give life back to music – astro-rock meets glamstep for the last track on the album…..”I was dancing from the start of the intro….just has that ‘feel good’ vibe,” said our head of sales….paying it forward is spoken often around the GG HQ and this track brings that full circle — “it’s the music of your life then give life back to music”
