Off to France tomorrow (yay!). And I slotted the final album into the journey playlist yesterday when I finally succumbed to the charms of Random Access Memory by Daft Punk.
What a glorious melange of 1970s influences - Niles Rogers guitar (actually played by Nile Rogers), rubbery bass and tight synthesised rhythms worthy of Giorgio Moroder (in whose honour there's a track); it's fabulous prog pop, the sound of summer, ideal for powering down the peage.
Apart from that I've got lots of reading matter and am looking forward to exploring Languedoc in the late summer sun, chilling round the pool and sampling the local cuisine.
Don't miss me too much!
