Watch Julian Casablancas Cover Daft Punk’s “Instant Crush” at SXSW

Earlier tonight, Julian Casablancas and his new backing band known as The Voidz hit The Fader Fort at SXSW for a performance. The collective decided to cover Casablancas’ collaboration with Daft Punk, “Instant Crush,” from 2013’s Random Access Memories. Though they were without the robots, Julian Casablancas + The Voidz still managed to churn out a stellar rendition. Watch the performance above.

    Ppl are saying that this was a shitty performance (thestrokesnews.com; stereogum) but I don’t think it was bad. I think watching a recorded live performance can always be tricky b/c it doesn’t interpret significantly well when listening back. But thanks Joyce for always supporting The Strokes. I don’t see enough coverage of them on other blogs so shouts to you.
