Yesterday, the Internet won. We all were utterly flabbergasted when we caught wind of the leaked full stream of Daft Punk's newest album, Random Access Memories. For me, it will be one of those days that will forever be burned in my memory as to where I was, what I was doing, and the feeling I felt as I listened to Random Access Memories all the way through -- a week early. Despite the early reviews, and all the critics, I was, and still am, in awe.
One track that stuck out for me was "Lose Yourself To Dance," featuring Pharrell Williams. If you watched the Collaborator videos, you probably heard that Daft Punk was intentionally aiming to do something different, something timeless, something that reached back in time to capture the simple essence of live instrumentation, and with "Lose Yourself to Dance" they have encompassed just that -- a super funky and warm track that is something amazing.
The only other thing left to say is "press play, and again, and again."
