Daft Punk: Random Access Memories
Buy! - (Daft Life/Columbia)
This French duo’s fourth proper studio album (and first in eight years) finds them moving away from electronic music towards a sleek ‘70s disco sound inflected with prog-rock, smooth jazz, yacht rock, sci-fi soundtracks and more. Using some stellar veteran studio musicians and featuring a variety of special guests including Chic’s Nile Rodgers, electro pioneer Giorgio Moroder, composer/pop cheese-ball Paul Williams, Animal Collective’s Panda Bear, the Strokes’ Julian Casablancas, the Neptunes’ Pharrell Williams and other luminaries, Random Access Memories is a lush, glittering set of meticulously arranged songs that often pack a surprising poignancy. 5/17/2013 - Don Yates
