If you ever wonder what that intersection of Beastie Boys and Daft Punk sounds like, check out “Daft Science”; a free album of Beastie Boys remixes, using only Daft Punk samples by Toronto artist COINS.
Whilst everyone is talking about Daft Punk’s new track ‘Get Lucky’, what’s really catching my attention right now is Daughter‘s cover, recorded for Huw Stephens on the BBC Radio One Live Lounge. It truly is a great take on the original, exploring a more melancholic side of it. Daft Punk’s track is perfect for driving and dancing like it’s the 70s, but the London trio’s version wins when I’m in a more introspective setting. Funny how two approaches to the same thing can make you feel so differently…
For those going to festivals in Europe, Daughter will play at Primavera Sound (Barcelona) and Field Day (London) this month, as well as a number of other countries in June and July.
Quick post again here, as I’m up to my eyes in Canadian Music Week and SXSW planning and executing. While on break, I checked a couple trusted sites and found these two little pieces of awesome.
Also, from Pasta Primavera, check out the Pet Shop Boys remixing MGMT‘s ‘Kids‘ (download it here). As I am now totally sick of the original, I might settle on this version as the one I’ll throw on when I want the ladies to dance.
Best yet, open both of these in your browser, hit the keys and remix the remix. If that makes sense.
I missed this the first time around. After checking some sites lately, seems as if Pacific! has made a lot of year end lists. So who are they? Have i heard them before?
There’s a good chance I’ve never heard Number One. If I had, I would have probably stopped everything I was doing and written the band name down on a cocktail napkin, then taped said napkin to my computer monitor as a reminder.
The band is a duo from Gothenburg, Sweden who spend their time mixing influences from France (Air, Daft Punk, Justice) to the sounds of The Beach Boys.
The song is in video form below (look for the mp3 at Turn That Shit Off). It song reminds me of an 80s workout video hosted by Brian Wilson. I do mean that as a compliment….

“It’s better to live One Day As A Lion then a thousand years as a lamb”.
Is it? Really? What would you do for that one day?? And can you imagine what you could get done in 1000 years, even as a lamb?
The quote is from a black and white photograph by legendary chicano photographer George Rodriquez. It also happens to be the new moniker for Zach de la Rocha’s newest musical endeavor. It’s a twosome along with Jon Theordore on drums (of Mars Volta fame).
Its solid from what I’ve heard so far. But, while while flipping channels the other night I’m pretty sure I heard someone from MTV Canada call this a mix between Rage Against the Machine and Daft Punk. Really? I hear the Rage, don’t hear anything close to those two French robots though… Look for their 5 song EP out on Anti.
Take a listen for yourself. Wild International (from Electrorash). Heavy.
