Brandt Brauer Frick: You Make Me Real

This German trio has an amazingly unique sound that can only be described as “acoustic techno.”  For Brandt Brauer Frick, pianos, strings and drums provide the common thread between the classical past and techno present.  While their music contains rich tones and timbres of orchestral instrumentation, their rousing tracks are rhythmically focused with the precision of electronic club beats.

Their debut LP, You Make Me Real, showcases the group’s stunning rhythms and chords, which speak fluently in an increasingly beat-driven culture.  Their deep knowledge in music’s foundations helps them in creating a more pure, perfect sound.  Their album will be released later this month.

They’re back, and they’re even harder, better faster and stronger than before!  Last night, Daft Punk made a surprise appearance at Madison Square Gardens during the Phoenix concert.  Fog filled the stage, and when it cleared, Daft Punk was revealed in their usual attire of suits and futuristic helmets.  They then played a quick set alongside their fellow Frenchmen, Phoenix.

Their appearance coincides with the creation of their soundtrack for the upcoming movie Tron: Legacy.  The Tron: Legacy soundtrack will be released December 7th.  A major coup for all you Daft Punk fans out there waiting for their return.
