Steely RAM

About the show

Playing tracks by

Hall & Oates, Todd Rundgren, Tangerine Dream, Goblin, Giorgio Moroder and more.

No podcast this week, in its place I have put together a love letter to Daft Punk's new album (may have heard about the thing).
The mix is called Steely RAM: their helmets are steel-like, the album's abbreviated to RAM and Steely Dan. This is not a Steely Dan vs. Daft Punk mashup, regretting this name already.
Steely RAM is a compilation, a sonic scrapbook of songs, artists and genres that Random Access Memories reminds me of.
I've kept to songs and artists that I know have been referenced by the band - either on this album or prior projects. Nothing rare in this one, Daft Punk wanted to emulate bands with huge budgets and time to play in the studio, I'd like to think every song in this mix is a masterclass in glossy big production, a class Daft Punk have aced.
There's a couple piano ballads, 'yacht rock' standards, jazz funk smoothness, electronic soundtrack atmosphere, prog and a little bit of disco.

Due to licensing issues in your country it is not possible to seek backwards. Why is this?
