Chromeo (to me) is more of a funk/new jack swing/boogie kind of sound, where this is just straight disco.
And yeah, I would describe this as being a straight up disco song too, but my jab was that it's just as throwaway retro kitsch as what Chromeo does. Which is why it is going to be extremely annoying when people start talking about it as if it is some revelatory release when it's really just a fun throwback track using vocal chopping that sounds exactly like what they were doing on Discovery.
i suspect i will enjoy this album as a fun thing to listen to, but I highly doubt it's anything particularly special.
the single leaked!
omg, tell us somethign that hasnt been discussed since this morning.
friend at sony? now we are supposed to be impressed or something, right?
Yeah, I'm not anticipating anything revolutionary either. A lot of their samples seem to come from the 1975-1985 time frame anyway, so I imagine it will be disco with modern production and their new synth they made. The rearrangement of their tracks in a live setting is where I think they succeed the most, which is probably why Human After All was such a weak album.
It's strange to think that their Coachella set was 7 years ago.
After the live show it almost seemed like the entire purpose of Human After All was to be cut up and used as samples to mash with their other releases.
Hmm...so this "radio edit" being thrown around is it? Daft Punk really went for the band sound. For me it's a little bit too focused on the vocals and not enough on the instrumentals. I was hoping more for a "Face to Face" vocal emphasis.
8 oclock tomorrow is what kroq just posted.
nahuatldream just blew my fucking mind.
Also, I wonder if their next live show will be similar to the last show, or a full live band, or a hybrid of the 2 (like basement jaxx).
Though, I'm not sure if it's realistic to play the guitar well with even really thin gloves on (but I'm not a guitar player...)
It's impossible to play any string instrument with gloves on without dampening & compromising the sound significantly. The finger tips would have to be exposed to make the notes sound.
"Oh this uncertainty is taking me over"
Then I suppose Guy and Tom could be manning keyboards/electronics, while they have a live drummer, guitar,bass, and guest vocalists. (unless guy does drums).
Or just stick to same fun DJ-esque set we all know and love (with a small segment of the show with some sort of live instrumentation).
Hologram Daft Punk instrument players...live guest vocalist, real DP behind the decks.... works for me.
