Album of the Day
Has it really been a year without Daft Punk? While the robotic duo officially disbanded on this day in 2021, their music remains, starting with debut HOMEWORK. “We made the record at home, very cheaply, very quickly, and spontaneously, trying to do cool stuff,” noted Thomas Bangalter, who with bandmate Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo had been focused on making singles before realizing they had enough strong tracks to fill an album. Among the instant classics here are “Alive,” “Around The World” and “Da Funk” - the latter two both topped Billboard's Hot Dance/Club Play chart. Rolling Stone hailed the 1997 collection as the greatest EDM album of all time, and you too will give HOMEWORK an A+.
