Macron is really into it. Trump is really not. Macron also seems to be into that. It's Friday afternoon after another s***show of a political week, and you needed this. Presented without further comment.Read More
So fresh. So funky. So good.Read More
Sadly, "the funk is strong with this one" just sounds like someone needs a shower.
We desperately needed this bit of silly escapism today. Jedi backup dancers, attack!Read More
We've seen stranger ways to plug a movie.
Simon Pegg and Nick Frost made the rounds pretty heavily to promote The World's End, and last month they stopped in at Capital FM in London. While they were there they did a cover of Daft Punk's "Get Lucky." Fun fact: I have never heard "Get Lucky" so this is the version I will always think of when I hear it.Read More
Daft Punk's new album Random Access Memories drops next week, or you can just listen to it now. It's leaked online, and you can even stream it through iTunes. A few short clips and fake files have been floating around the Internet for weeks now, but this one is iTunes official, so it's probably legit.Read More
After much anticipation, and a ridiculous number of fake leaks, Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" has finally officially released. It's the first single off their album, Random Access Memories, which should be out in May. We don't always cover music here at Geekosystem, but Daft Punk is often particularly scrumptious. Give "Get Lucky" a listen, and see for yourself.Read More
The Daft Punk camp has dismissed the latest YouTube uploads purporting to be their full, leaked TRON: Legacy soundtrack. As funky and Daft Punk-esque as some tracks may sound, the only real music from the film so far has been the six excerpts posted by Seattle radio station The End. They have since been taken down by Disney, but are still available in shorter form on the official TRON site. (via Pitchfork)Read More
If this is real, it would be a leak of some magnitude: One YouTube user, alexdaft26, has uploaded what purports to be the entirety of the Tron Legacy soundtrack as composed by Daft Punk. From afar, it sounds well Daft Punk-y and like it certainly could be the soundtrack to a movie about people who wear glowing suits and ride around on lightcycles, but there are a few reasons to suspect it isn't: I'll confess I haven't gotten the chance to listen to the whole thing and must rely on second-hand information, but it supposedly does not quite match with what official music has been released by Disney.
Sonic comparisons aside, the biggest reason to suspect these might not be real is that you can still listen to them: The tracks were uploaded on July 26th, eons ago in Internet time, and started getting major attention as of yesterday, with the compilation track racking up close to 30,000 hits on YouTube. Disney has been very protective of Tron stuff, so it's a good bet that if these are real, they'll be gone by the end of the day today. Which is all the more reason to hit the jump and listen to them now while you can: Think of it as an investment in being up on things.Read More
For reasons as yet unknown, Adidas has shot a maniacally Star Wars-themed World Cup ad which jam-packs celebrity cameos into an elaborate reenactment of the cantina scene. If you've ever wanted to see Snoop Dogg wield a lightsaber or witness David Beckham and Daft Punk not only occupy the same room, but occupy the same room which is filled with aliens and unnervingly similar to the Mos Eisley cantina, this just might be for you!
Our brethren at SportsGrid have more thoughts on the ad and its unique approach to "celebrat[ing] originality."Read More
