Photo: iStockphoto The initial reaction to Daft Punk’s hugely anticipated Random Access Memories was slightly shocked, as eager fans realized that, far from the set of summer-dance anthems promised by the first single “Get Lucky,” it’s actually an eccentric reimagining of retro sounds often deemed beyond good taste: yacht rock, Euro-disco, jazz fusion, Broadway-musical piano ballads. But the album has been getting mostly great reviews since then, and looks set to sell big . So, if you find yourself inspired by Daft Punk to spend the summer gazing at the ocean in a pair of pressed white linen pants and Wayfarers while sipping a piña colada and listening to spaced-out soft disco and Christopher Cross, here are 30 albums that probably helped inspire Random Access Memories . 1. Chic, C’est Chic (Atlantic, 1978) Random Access Memories would be unthinkable without the presence of Nile Rodgers — as would, come to think of it, much of disco. Mixing funk density with the weightlessness of a blown kiss, Rodgers’s rhythm guitar in “Get Lucky” and a couple other standouts is a shameless reproduction of early Chic. See, especially, the rhapsodic anthem “Le Freak” and the glamorous, amorous pining in “I Want Your Love.” Listen: “ I Want Your Love ” 2. D onna Summer, I Remember Yesterday (Casablanca, 1977) The disco diva did some postmodern time-traveling of her own on I Remember Yesterday , which mixed classic disco with vintage signifiers ranging from the big-band twenties to the girl-group sixties. Onward to the future, the epochal finale “I Feel Love” featured out-there synthesizer sounds and sleek electronic drum programming from producer — and eventual Daft Punk muse — Giorgio Moroder. Listen: “ I Feel Love ” 3. Giorgio Moroder, From Here to Eternity (Casablanca, 1977) The Italian super-producer expanded on the all-electronic disco he more or less invented for “I Feel Love” on this full-length album that sounds startling … [Read more...] about Accessories: 30 Albums to Listen to If You Love the New Daft Punk
