Daft Punk: still lucky - The Chart Show, May 30, 2013


8 Bit Daft Punk
The Throbbing Hive investigates the latest meme produced by Daft Punk. (8 Bit Daft Punk)

We're not the only ones who like Daft Punk. Apparently they went to #1 in 97 countries on the planet this week! Sold over 330,000 in the US to top Billboards chart (Vampire Weekend only sold 139K last week to be #1?!) And they became the biggest Spotify hit ever, outdoing Mumfords!

Well, well, well. Who'd have predicted that? You can hear more tracks from Random Access Memories next week as our CD of the Week, in case you STILL haven't decided to buy in yet. It's not chock full of big hit singles. You can't dance to all of it, but there's one more song that will be hooj!

Two Hall of Fame inductees finishing strongly, with Dawes in for the third time and Yeah Yeah Yeahs for the first. New entries are Eels and The Staves from UK, who play Varsity Theater on Friday night on their first tour of the USA.

If you didn't get tickets to Dessa's two sold-out shows, she's going to Greater MN to celebrate the new album too, playing in-stores in Duluth and St. Cloud on June 25th. And Har Mar will be back this Sunday for Grand Ol'Day, 4 p.m. on Dixie's stage.
