Riff: Daft Punk – “Contact”

May 19, 2013

As we look back at the earth it’s up at about 11 o’clock, about maybe ten or twelve diameters/I don’t know whether that does you any good, but there’s something out there

from Contact lyrics by Daft Punk

Led with audio of the last moon-bound Apollo 17 crew attempting to make sense of mysterious flashes of light, DP go out on RAM with a 2001: A Space Odyssey light-tunnel bang, capturing both their full-band organic clatterings for the future and their forever Discovery chase of yore; [LISTEN].
