Riff: Daft Punk – “Instant Crush”

May 17, 2013

And we will never be alone again/’Cause it doesn’t happen everyday/Kinda counted on you being a friend/Kinda given up on giving away

from Instant Crush lyrics by Daft Punk

The last in a series of A-side downers, king Stroke Julian gets a feathery Auto-Tune assist to lounge-funk preach familiar apathetic gospel way too early for a mid-life crisis, but just right for a ‘random access memory’ and the feeling that most friends are never what they appear to be; [LISTEN].
