How did a French electronic duo with a prediliction for robot masks become pop music's Godot? Rumors of a surprise appearance at the Coachella festival overshadowed both weekends, and new single "Get Lucky" got the most single-day spins ever on Spotify. While the song is a fizzy disco flashback (thanks to Chic's Nile Rodgers), new album "Random Access Memories" can't live up to this level of hype. Remember Daft Punk's "Tron 2.0" soundtrack?
