Daft Punk have promised that they’ll be releasing their own remixes of the songs on their latest album, Random Access Memories. But Darkside a.k.a. Nicolas Jaar and Dave Harrington– have beaten them to the punch, remixing RAM in its entirety, and riding roughshod over its smooth patina.
Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” has been called many things (electronic dance music’s savior, EDM’s demise, pure funk, completely derivative), but a soothing indie song it is not. Shoe-gazers looking to stay “up all night to get lucky,” however, can find solace in Daughter’s new cover, a breathy, minimalist take that sounds like one of best xx songs never recorded.
