3 years later and I just had this discussion with Cujo this week. I still don't know, I say it as M-eight-three.

Their new album, Saturdays = Youth, is out this coming Tuesday (April 15, a present for tax day!), and I'm extremely excited for it. M83 can almost do no wrong for me, I even liked Digital Shades (vol. 1) quite a bit. Yet again, Saturdays = Youth is supposed to have a sound in a different direction than they've done before, but still be M83. The two singles from it have been absolutely killer. Give them both a listen:

Couleurs (stream)

Graveyard Girl (music video)

I really like Skin of the Night

Also Kim & Jessie & Couleurs are great

Very haunting, atmospheric, beautiful songs.

The whole album is getting better with each listen.
Seems like a very cohesive album

Good choices, my friend.

A couple that haven't been mentioned that I also really enjoy are 'We Own the Sky' and 'Dark Moves Of Love'.

I don't at all like this record as a record, but holy shit, does it have some great songs!

Oh, and I would say the same of both Before the Dawn Heals Us and Dead Cities, Red Seas, and Lost Ghosts, neither of which (having first been purchased when they were first released) I've been able to listen to from front to back in one sitting more than maybe three or four times each. Definitely a song band, for me. Saw them live for a few bucks in Chicago, immediately before/just as that first record blew up, and it was...all right. Not too subtle or varied, but the strong songs remained strong, so it was certainly worth $8, or whatever.

OK, so what's the over/under on Kim & Jessie becoming a surprise hit when it's released as a single next month? That's a damn fine song, and the catchiest thing on the new record.

It really is a great song. I get that little guitar part in my head all the time. To my ears, it's one of the best songs this year, and best albums this year.







PS - I take back the fart knocker comment.

You meant well. Just wanted to get me moving in the right direction.


I'm extremely excited about this record, definitely. I hear a Kevin Shields influence in parts, but it's tempered with some very catchy melodies and very retro instrumentation. Great stuff.

Your assessment seems spot on. He's admitted to a love of MBV and shoegaze and dream-pop in general for quite some time.....which probably explains my M83 love.

It is an 80's-tastic album to be sure, and another gem from Anthony Gonzalez, the brains behing M83 (pron. m - eightythree btw)

Trust me, I have to know these things..

Pitchfork TV has just put up a nice live performance video of 'Kim & Jesse' (still easily one of my favorite songs of the year from what is also easily one of my favorite albums of the year!) on their Live In Juan's Basement series. I LOVE his guitar tone in this performance, the "solo" parts at the end sound beautiful.

If you watch part 2 of the segment above, Anthony says he had never even listened to MBV until people kept making comparisons after the debut! Surprising stuff.

As a side note, I think this is my first time actually seeing what he looks like. Nothing like I had imagined.
