Monday Music: Alive 2007

There’s been alota talk about Daft Punk lately, what with the release of their new album Random Access Memories. (Which is great, by the way!) So I thought I’d take the opportunity to discuss my favorite DP album!
Alive 2007 is a live album recorded in Paris in 2007, obviously enough. It includes mashed up remixes of all of DP’s most popular music at the time, and it is awesome.
I love Daft Punk, but a lot of the time their stuff is a bit too mild for me to rock out to. Alive 2007 is a bit harder-hitting, and brings its own cohesive sound to the table. That said, it might not be for everyone. But It certainly gets my drawing juices flowin’.
It’s hard for me to pick a favorite from the set, partly because it all flows together so perfectly. But as a small confession, I sometimes like to imagine Touch It/ Technologic as the opening to a KB movie or cartoon. The RBL fight from chapter one starts at the 3:41 mark. Please don’t take this away from me.
In any case, the album’s only 8 bucks on itunes! I say this is a steal.
Please tune in next week, where it might finally be time to open up the can of robotic worms known as Vocaloids.
