On Tuesday, May 14, French electro duo Daft Punk enter the Hype Machine's most blogged artists chart after streaming their new album online, while UK-based multi-instrumentalist Cosmo Sheldrake enters the chart in fifth position with his new single, "Fly."

Daft Punk's latest album, the hotly anticipated "Random Access Memories," due out May 21, is causing a buzz across the music blogs after it recently became available from streaming online.

The album is available to stream via iTunes to the delight of fans around the world. The French electro duo also recently previewed new song "Give Life Back To Music" in a trailer for the new LP that can be found at youtube.com/watch?&v=Rr12u1tk_rM.

Music blog Why Fukk When You Can Dance said "Random Access Memories is probably the coolest, most complete album I have listened to in over two decades," while Trash Bags wrote "This album is a what we consider a piece of artwork, a soundtrack, a journey. It's wonderful."  

Also in the Hype Machine's most blogged artists chart is Cosmo Sheldrake, a multi-instrumentalist based out of Brighton in the UK. Sheldrake has dropped his latest track, "The Fly," which mixes in verses from the William Blake poem of the same name. The Line Of Best Fit writes "Tinkering with baroque instrumentation and ultra-contemporary layering and looping techniques, Cosmo has landed upon a wonderfully rustic yet no less refreshing mural of Romantic Age Britain." Listen Before You Buy writes "There's definitely a strong folk flavor coming through here -- particularly with the vocals, which could easily be repurposed into a round for when you're down the pub."
