Daft Punk fever is a very real and very serious condition. It’s been spreading since early January, when reports of a new album from the French house duo leaked from their lab. The viral spread of the news has already caused more internet disarray than Y2K, while human symptoms include rave finger, some burning and robot-itis – a harrowing condition that makes your head turn chrome and helmet-shaped. If you're not up for giving ‘Random Access Memories’ another spin right yet, though, then a fast remedy might be to watch 2001’s entire ‘Discovery’ album played live by seven-piece band, Introducing.
More conceptual than a standard tribute act, this gang of musicians are devoted to staging whole albums previously thought unperformable – a task they first undertook with DJ Shadow’s sample-based classic, ‘Endtroducing’. With sonics taking precedence over spectacle, the group have done their homework to make sure they nail every last vocodered detail of the greatest Saturday night record of a generation. Surely the perfect way to shake off that Daft Punk funk.
