Take a Flip Through Daft Punk’s Record Crate

Every Wednesday, Douglas Wolk explores the people, places and coincidences that tie disparate one mmusicians together.

Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories officially came out this week, after a long, flashy buildup. It’s their fourth full-on studio album, and first since 2005’s Human After All, not counting greatest-hits, live and remix records (or 2010’s Tron: Legacy soundtrack). It’s also unusually light on samples for Daft Punk — maybe because it’s got more guest musicians than they’ve usually used in the past. Nile Rodgers, for instance, plays guitar on three of its tracks, and he’s very much in evidence on “Get Lucky,” in particular.
