With Phoenix, the french house gods played a jammed out mix of their classic "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger" and "Around The World". This was Daft Punk's first live performance in three years.

You can watch the video of Daft Punk performing "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger" and "All Around The World" (after Phoenix's "If I Ever Feel Better") below: (Continue Reading)
The third, final installment of Robyn's dance-pop Body Talk series will arrive Stateside on November 22 (along with the National's extended High Violet, and possibly, Kanye West's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy).

Watch the clip and enjoy the alternate "Terrible Love" below: (Continue Reading)
