Daft Punk grace the Dec 2010 issue of Dazed & Confused Magazine in 3d. The robot duo discuss there work on the soundtrack to Tron Legacy. The Tron Legacy soundtrack is released on Dec 7th and you can stream 30 second samples of the whole album on Amazon.com. The rumors this week hit overload that Daft Punk will be headling Coachella. Other acts being mentioned for the fest are Arcade Fire, The Rolling Stones, Beastie Boys. I’m still hoping for a PULP reunion.
Arcade Fire who have released one of the best albums of the year in ” The Suburbs”, hae released a video for the title track. The video is directed by none other than Spike Jonze and fits the song almost perfect.
