M83

Ok, I was hesitant to check them out because of how much Pitchfork liked them (Pitchforks reviews tend to be hit and miss for me). I finally decided maybe I should check them out because I'd seen a few people here liked them too (Basstrap, etc).

I'm not even halfway through the album yet and I already know this is probably the next thing I'm going to buy. I'm very impressed

I know nothing about them, please teach me.

I liked "Run Into Flowers" instantly and have listened to it heaps over the past few weeks. The rest of the tracks will take a bit more getting used to, at least for me.

Hmm, hard to say. I've only listened to the album all the way through twice. The Basstrapper would be much more qualified than I to make such a judgement.

It also seems like the type of album whose music makes a bigger impact in 'album' form to me (because it is an 'electronic' album whose music predominantly features keyboards and is void of what you would normally refer to as 'lyrics').


I'll direct you to some album reviews though:

Well, I picked the disc up today finally. (I like how I said it would be the next thing I buy 7 months ago....)

Not sure how many of you know, but the US release came out about a month ago. It included a bonus disc that looks like your average bonus at first sight (5 songs, 2 videos). Upon putting the bonus disc in tonight, I realized it contained about 43 mins of music!!! I really dig all the stuff on the bonus disc too, particularly 'Tsubasa' and 'God of Thunder'.

Here's the bonus disc track listing:

1. Tsubasa
2. God of Thunder
3. In Church (Cyann & Ben Version)
4. Gone (Live)
5. Dead Cities, Red Seas, & Lost Ghosts

Run Into Flowers (video)
America (video)

Anyways, very glad I finally got this. I havent heard any of the songs from the album in a long time (deleted them knowing I'd buy it sooner or later), so it's really hitting the spot.

Ok, question - they are coming through here soon, and I'm wondering what they're like live. Has anyone seen them?

There's a live version of 'Gone' on the bonus disc of the US release of Dead Cities. It's really great. I imagine the show would be just as good.

Ulrich Schnauss is opening for M83 on tour, I honestly like his most recent album more than M83's most recent. Really a fantastic billing, I wish they were coming closer. I'd totally go if I was you!
