Daft Punk’s hugely successful CD “Alive 2007” will be rereleased as a double-vinyl edition Dec. 23 — just in time for last-minute awesome gift-giving.

“Alive 2007” is a mix of the French house duo’s most well-received studio songs up to that point — reworked and reimagined.

It was recorded live at Bercy in Paris on June 14, 2007, and was originally only available as a CD or digital download. “Alive 2007” garnered a Grammy for “Best Electronic/Dance Album” in 2009.

The “Alive 2007” double-vinyl edition is set to be a triple gatefold.

Side A: ROBOT ROCK / OH YEAH / TOUCH IT / TECHNOLOGIC / TELEVISION RULES THE NATION / CRESCENDOLLS 
Side B:
TOO LONG / STEAM MACHINE / AROUND THE WORLD / HARDER BETTER FASTER STRONGER / BURNIN’ / TOO LONG 
Side C:
FACE TO FACE / SHORT CIRCUIT / ONE MORE TIME / AERODYNAMIC / AERODYNAMIC BEATS / FORGET ABOUT THE WORLD
Side D:
PRIME TIME OF YOUR LIFE / BRAINWASHER / ROLLIN’ AND SCRATCHIN’ / ALIVE / DA FUNK / DAFTENDIREKT / SUPERHEROES / HUMAN AFTER ALL / ROCK’N’ROLL

Adding to the hype — a limited edition of “Alive 2007” will be released at the same time. This one will have the album on two solid-white vinyl records, plus a vinyl bonus, a 52-page book of concert pics, a slipmat and download card.

On the vinyl bonus: Side A– The show’s encore (Human After All / Together / One More Time (reprise) / Music Sounds Better With You). Side B — “Alive 2007” pyramid logo etched.

Along with all that comes a silver vinyl edition of Daft Punk’s first live album “Alive 1997.”

How’s that for holiday gift-giving?

Download, stream Yacht’s “Terminal Beach”

“Where Does This Disco?” Limited Edition EP

Dance-punk group Yacht are streaming their latest single “Terminal Beach,” which you can also download for free at Stereogum.
“Terminal Beach” refers to a collection of stories by British science-fiction writer J.G. Ballard. The namesake story is basically about a man, whose wife dies, decides to run away to an island that used to be used for nuke-testing.

Despite that thought, you should still listen to Yacht’s “Terminal Beach,” maybe because it’s eons from the story: The song mixes up 80s pop-dance and punk-princess vocals and is worth your time.

Yacht’s EP “Where Does This Disco?”  was out Nov. 11 on Downtown Records.
