listening to cross for the first time atm. better than daft punk. alot better.
than daft punk? absolutely not in a million years.
i didn't realise the O2 advert music from a while back was actually utopia by them.
prefer the jackson&his computer band album to the massively overhyped cross
close though. and both utterly amazing.
That is good. I got that, The Radio Dept. and the second M83 album all at the same time. That was a good day...
Not better. There's a lot more going on with Daft Punk to keep the ear/mind interested.
the Daft Punk pyramid, that was one of the audio visual highlights of the year, whereas justice live on the few occasions that i saw them (particularly field day) were very average.
and a bit light, while Daft Punk are like satisfying bourbon creme.
Very sadly mistaken. No no no.
Go and get HOMEWORK (Daft Punk) and listen to it loud - as loud as possible - and then listen to it again. And again. If you haven't already.
Daft Punk did lose hold of the mantle in this genre sadly, for a while (I gave up after One More Time - the most irritating song of last century in my view) but I recently purchased a 12" vinyl of "Time Of Your Life" which is very out there*.
*I've only played this to approximately 3 people ever (true fact) and in the privacy of my own home because it's so grindingly noise electro it would make most people's eardrums bleed...
Daft Punk >>>>>> Justice
i thought similarly about One More Time and Harder Better Faster Stronger back when they came out, but I went back to Discovery last year and I really love it now. Weird, eh?
Crescendolls is up there as one of the best things they've ever done.
HOLY FREAKIN BALLS
I forgot the 'Prime'.
Holy Freakin Balls alright.
I wish I had it on m' ipod now.
It's not that abrasive, and I've played the original mix out in clubs before. Still, your average Boys Noize track sounds rougher, not to mention the likes of Gingy and The Bloody Beetroots.
has that vinyl got the para one remix of time of your life? i adoooooooooooore that remix
actualy most of the human after all remixes are pretty good :)
That is indeed the mix I am referring to. It's freakin' craaaaaaaazy, isn't it? It's like, 'Where was their headspace at that precise time of creation of that track??'
I have never dared play it in public... :)
Been hanging out under any Victorian arches at electro raves of late?
been trying to take it easy recently, although i was out on new years eve for a little bit of techno haha.
i've got vitalic, the glimmers and autokratz in a few weeks tho :D i loove vitalic!
And Vitalic, WHERE is that on???
I've kind of been taking it easy too - more gigs as compared to parties like that, anyway...
where did you go NYE? There were soo many good parties on... but I elected to do something a little tamer for a change.
leeds is great :D:D:D:D i've seen autokratz before as well and yes they are good. tho i think the signing's a bit strange in places.
new year was at dirty disco in leeds. it was proper trance-y, tho not trance-y in the 'type of music' sense. the music was basically minimal techno and seemed to send my head in a spin haha!
very happy indeed. They are amazing. I've seen them thrice now and each time just completely rock it right out.
Sounds like fun. Have a boogie for me.
weren't especially good at Tales Of The Jackalope, but me and my friends booked them a couple of months ago for our clubnight and they were fantastic.
Much better, just listen to Homework (Phoenix, Rock'n'roll, Rollin and Scratching). Justice is good, but noway near Daft Punk!
pretty much every justice song ive heard so far ive liked. A lot of daft punk is absoloute rubbish. Bare in mind homework was the first record i ever purchased.
tho I cant stand the strings on Phantom part II. True about some Daft Punk being rubbish tho...
everyone writing about Justic oen this thread is pronouncing Justice in the correct French manner - none of your "justice" baws around here - it's JHOOZ-TEES
but no way near as good as everyone makes it out to be. And I think the similarities between Justice and Daft Punk are very vague.
Well, if you discount "Discovery", yes. But much of the record is as close to "Discovery Part 2" as you could get. Which is probably why I love it so much.
amazing... for example
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hRguZr0xCOc (stress - my favourite song)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MdhZ8xXbR3Q (a bit more for stress)
The only tracks which let Cross down are The Paaaaaaarty with Uffie and D.V.N.O. Though the latter tune has an amazing sampled bass solo!
I wish to see them live very soon.
but uffie is hawwwwwwt.
Feadz does it all, or Mr Oizo for that matter. but mainly feadz. and they are an item too
effort... MORE MORE MORE. Let's hope it takes Monsiour Tellier away from freakin' L'Oreal ads... **
**I think I'll never get over La Ritournelle being sold like a cheap, dirty, used shoe to L'Oreal.. never... ever...
it's not LA Ritournelle but a admiteddly very close copy there-of. No-ones more upset about it than us, believe.

Not better than Daft Punk though.
its great, but in no way superior to Daft Punk.
and babyshambles are better than the clash.
and still haven't spun it yet. How's that for insightful commentary?
i bought the simian mobile disco album at the same time and i've listened to that loads. i think i've only played the justice one once. i do have it next to me in the pile of cds im going to force myself to listen to this weekend.
but not tonight, im enjoying camera obscura too much.
that anyone with an interest in this thread should buy the Digitalism album too.
because it's infinitely better
as a whole, though Idealism in itself is amazing. Justice are strange. Listen to them once and you'll hear noise and distorted bass, but on the 2nd playthrough it's phenomenal.
Oh and I saw them at Field Day but after seeing Battles sounding like a wet fart went to the front. It was pretty cool but a conversation behind us about the promoter was louder.
