This year’s art exhibit will feature works by over 40 painters, sculptors, digital and screen print artists, each of whom has created an original work of art inspired by Daft Punk.

Maybe its the classic ode to Nike of years past style advertisement, but Daft Punk have done a very nice job of promoting and announcing the only official "Daft Punk merchandise" associated with Random Access Memories. Kind of is an Instant Classic. (update: the Daft Punk site now has new ads up for a belt buckle, poster, and more shirts).

Nothing says summer vacation like the French Riviera. But in the case of David Choe and Estevan Oriol, they much prefer to spend the summer in one of the hardest places in the world to get into: Afghanistan. For the August 2013 issue, we get an exclusive, Anderson Cooper 360 style report from Afghanistan from the journals of David Choe and photos of Estevan Oriol. We follow their trek through the mountains, palaces, jails, and neighborhoods that most of the world has yet to see in over a decade. And they brought paint.

Get ready. It will be the Summer of Daft Punk. We have been streaming the new album, Random Access Memories in the office all week, and we admit, this is will be a good soundtrack for a mellow night out or something more Parisian disco if you so want to go Parisian Disco. Daehyun Kim, who we have featured in the magazine this year, just did an illustration in honor of Daft Punk's new album, and shared with us the final piece and some detail shots.
