(CBS News) Daft Punk. (I'll wait for the cheers and applause to die down.) Seriously, they're back and hotter than ever with their new album "Random Access Memories" out now. And while you should make sure to listen to it immediately if you haven't yet, the music video above is a live music medley and tribute to some of their past hits. (But is amazing, I promise.) Check it out.
The epic homage to Daft Punk was posted by the band Pigeon who write about their six-songs-mixed music video for the song aptly entitled "Daft Punk Medley":
Electronic band Pigeon perform a medley of DAFT PUNK tunes live in the studio using a microKORG, NORD lead 2x, KORG microsampler, Roland SPD-SX, T.C HELICON Voice Live Touch, Rocktron Banshee Talkbox, Bass, Gibson SG Guitar, Tambourine and a 3 piece horn section.
With all the hype surrounding the new Daft Punk album "Random Access Memories" and the first single "Get Lucky feat. Pharell", the Pigeon lads would like to give a tip of the hat to the accomplished french producers and they hope that their medley of covers (which includes 6 daft punk tracks in 9 minutes) will be a nostalgic journey for enthusiasts of the group.
The medley includes cover versions of One More Time, Around the World, Da Funk, Robot Rock, Aerodynamic, and Harder Better Faster Stronger. Hope you're all enjoying the Daft Punk album stream.
Well played, Pigeon! (Because they played some great music and I'm "playing" on the expression in two different ways... oh, nevermind!) A truly excellent medley and tribute to a group that is simply way too cool for school, and we're ecstatic to see back now! (Viva Daft Punk!)
