Today’s MP3 is a cover of the LCD Soundsystem classic ‘Daft Punk Is Playing At My House’ from bedroom electronica prodigy Magic Arm, aka Marc Regisford.
Magic Arm is a scuzz-and-squelch synth wizard who specialises in lo-fi ditties and insists he isn’t influenced by anyone.
While there isn’t a more tired sentiment in music discussions than the whole not-influenced-by-anyone card, Magic Arm has the decency to throw down “a Yamaha CS-10 from Cash Converters” as an alternative. He’s also pretty unique in the fact that he plays everything himself live via a exponential sound loop, layering everything on top of each other like an electro funk lasagne. Or something.
Incidentally, did ‘Daft Punk…’ ever sound good live?
