Daft Punk (again)

daft-punk

I had rather decided not to have any more remixes of the new Daft Punk album, after listening to a few tracks with an increasingly glum feeling. But since Poj Masta encouraged me to stick with it here are two more goes to see if they crack a smile on my otherwise po-faced appearance. Free download.

The Golden Pony take on Doin’ It Right. They amp up the synths and make it… bigger and shinier. It’s fine, and after a few drinks it will have a singalong charm, but sober with coffee it still sounds like soft rock disco to me. Free download.

Here’s a different approach from Atlas Genius, who do an acoustic cover version of Get Lucky. The original track really irritates me. But this cover just about works by making it into a proper song.

Blurb: Behind the success of their debut album, When It Was Now, Atlas Genius are one of the breakout acts of 2013. They’re MTV’s most recent “Artist To Watch.” They’ve performed “Trojans,” their hit single that had an unprecedented chart run at Alternative radio, on Fallon, Kimmel, Leno and Carson. A couple weeks ago, played their new single, “If So” on Letterman. Atlas Genius recently wrapped up a two month tour with Imagine Dragons and are now set  to headline themselves and hit the summer festival circuit. For a full list of confirmed dates, see below.
