Most blogged artists: lost track by Daft Punk surfaces
Tuesday 20 September 2011
French trancemasters Daft Punk claim a top spot in The Hype Machine's most blogged artists chart on September 20 with the release of a lost track from 1994. Swedish music project Korallreven has also been a hot topic in recent days after releasing a new single featuring former Concretes lead singer Victoria Bergsman.
The Scottish techno label Soma was recently searching through old material for its upcoming triple-disc compilation and came across a previously unreleased Daft Punk track called "Drive." "The track offers an intriguing glimpse at the origins of an act that has gone on to headline festivals, score high-profile films, and influence a whole new generation of electronic music-makers," write Spin's Daily Noise blog.
Korallreven is the project of Swedish musicians Marcus Joons and Daniel Tjäder (the latter is also a member of indie pop band The Radio Dept.). The band is prepping its debut full-length after releasing a mixtape, and teased a new single called "As Young as Yesterday" that blogger The Culture of Me describes as "a pulsing and building glitch anthem." The single comes with remixes from artists Panda Bear and Girl Unit, and a limited edition 12" version of the songs is now available via the label Acephale.
