So I’m seriously trying to get my take on the new Daft Punk album out, but I still feel like I need to listen to it a couple more times. My very first impression on the album was it was mediocre, but with each subsequent listen, it quickly changed to godlike. I think it needs to settle a bit before I write anything more about it.
Starting off with an amazing track once again remixed by CHVRCHES of MS MR. I love it. It could be a CHVRCHES song for all I would know, the vocalists from both groups sound somewhat similar. I’m really liking the direction CHVRCHES is taking with the music they’re making, even if this isn’t an original. Second up is the RAC remix of YACHT Second Summer. It’s a bit slower, a bit toned down, but greatness from RAC again. Lastly, I had this sitting on my desktop for almost half a year. I should post a screenshot of my super cluttered desktop, it’d make most people cringe. The Anoraak remix of Tresors Pleine Lune which I unexpected was saving up until now. Wait for a minute in, shit gets serious.

I’m excited for Daft Punk’s upcoming album, but I’ve vowed to avoid posting stuff until its official released. Too much mashed up stuff from commercials. I can’t wait for the real thing, I hope it lives up to my expectations because I’ve been waiting 8 years for this. That’s typically a recipe for disaster with such anticipation for a given album, but to be honest, I don’t even know what to expect. It’s really a blank slate at the moment, but my hope is this will squelch that awful mess they call dubstep.
Moving along! This is going to be a short one today, some tracks I am excited about and finally have a chance to post. First off, CHVRCHES. They don’t even have a full length album out and they’re getting quite the hype. I have to say I actually like this track The Mother We Share a lot more than their most recent single Recover. Hopefully they have more that sounds like this track? Second in line is Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. If You Didn’t See Me. The intro of the track actually reminds me of The Unicorns which really brings me back, but it quickly segues into something more upbeat. I remember listening to too much of The Unicorns left me a bit down, upbeat equals greatness. And lastly the Generationals, it’s a bit slower but I’m loving it anyways. The weird sounds? Gets to me every time. This also reminds me of The Unicorns…
