The best track on Random Access Memories, reconsidered

Drew Daniel on that song from Daft Punk's latest album, Random Access Memories. The song of the summer is, of course, Doin' it Right.

Out of the entire take-it-or-leave-it, hour-long Daft Punk musical extravaganza, I think "Doin' It Right" travels lightest, and for that reason, it survives transplantation outside of its host environment with the greatest ease. And for that reason, "Doin' It Right" has been one of the songs of my summer, while many worthy other songs from this album have not.

Get Lucky, he said, is merely "Ye Olde Disco Museum, all wonderfully fussy period details nailed perfectly into place by a crack team of professionals. … doomed to circle office party disco hell from here on out as punishment for its success."
