M83 - Midnight City
You've actually heard some of the work of M83's Anthony Gonzalez on our site before, as he scored the Red Bull film "The Art of Flight" to which we've given so much love to. We've been big fans for some time (see album "Saturdays=Youth"), and are happy that we are finally getting our hands on some new material. M83 is constantly getting comparisons to 80's new wave, and we'd be liars if we said that a comparison isn't somewhat warranted, but we also think that M83 are much more than a timely and trendy throwback group. They have talent in spades, and have a real knack with melody, on display nicely in the above track "Midnight City." There latest album, 'Hurry Up, We're Dreaming,' was dropped on Tuesday and is available in stores and online.
