I have been following M83 for a while and I love this new album. It’s more of what you would expect from Anthony Gonzalez but with some fresh perspective. There is no one better to lay down a sonic landscape that takes you from shoe-gazing silence to [at times] violent synth-driven leads. While it’s a fully electronic sound, it’s not a typical techno/dance album but more of a story telling that uses electronica as a medium. Listen here:
This music may not be for everyone but, if you are a fans of Sigur Ros or Explosions in the Sky, then m83 is the electronic counterpart to your musical taste.
