I just post soundcloud and/or youtube links to more obscure artists that I feel should get some attention. But I do it more in terms of "Hey check this guy out" or "This is interesting" rather than "My playlist is cooler than yours."
This. I also post some "famous" tracks every now and then because I want to share them with my friends.
But, really, their style changed a lot from Homework to Discovery... it's as if the success of "Around the World" condemned them to a life of disco music, occasionally cooperating (out of pity) with a singer who had his larynx removed and needs to breathe through a vocoder that makes him sound like a drunk Stephen Hawking playing with the "falsetto" button of his speech synthesiser. I miss the good old days when listening to a Daft Punk album meant drum machines and lo-fi sound loops would simply pierce your ears and your soul, and the occasional synth line wasn't trying to steal the spotlight.
