ELECTRO-DANCE

BUZZ ALBUM!

Looking like they stepped out of Tron: Legacy (the ’10 sci-fi film they scored), the helmet-rocking French electronic duo have won some precious metal—two Grammys – with their futuristic beats. But now Daft Punk takes you back to the ’70s and ’80s on a sweeping disco extravaganza recorded on analog gear with an army of real, human musicians. Among the players on their first studio album since ’05: guitarist Nile Rodgers, whose Chic sound funks up two Pharrell-led jams: “Lose Yourself to Dance” and the even groovier “Get Lucky.” Then there’s “Giorgio by Moroder,” with the titular titan of dance music accessing some special memories.
