Biography

With these soft spoken words on the simply-titled opening track--“Intro”-- M83 mastermind Anthony Gonzalez introduces us to his sixth record and first double disc album, Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming.

Dauntlessly singing into the void that was left behind since Saturdays=Youth, Gonzalez suddenly surges with overwhelming emotion as the music mounts an invisible precipice. ... Read more in Amazon's M83 Store

Product Description

For M83's chief star-gazer Anthony Gonzalez, his youth is something he looks back upon with affection, something that has become the defining theme of his enchanting new album, Saturdays=Youth. Saturdays=Youth is his most explicit celebration yet of how it feels to be dazed, confused and 15 years old. "Saturday is definitely the coolest day of the week for a teenager and that's the reason Saturday is in the title," he says, as if it needed explaining. "Saturday always reminds everyone of their youth". Saturdays = Youth delivers the rich sonic textures for which M83 is well known -this time with a more focused approach to song structure and form.

Format: Audio CD
It is maybe because I am of a similar age to M83's Anthony Gonzalez that the themes and aesthetics of 'Saturday = Youth' resonate so strongly. This album is drenched with 80's inspiration and takes its atmospheric cues from the likes of Cocteau Twins, the post punk band The Chameleons (give their second album 'What Does Anything Mean? Basically' a listen - the opener 'Silence, Sea & Sky' in particular could have been plucked straight from an M83 album) as well as an obvious nod to 'Hounds of Love' era Kate Bush.

In some respects, the album is comparable to the work of Boards of Canada. That is not to say that M83's compositions resemble the mood or sonic palette of BoC particularly ('Music Has the Right to Children' was menacing and claustrophobic, 'Saturdays = Youth' is light and airy), it is more the sense of delicious nostalgia that each act expertly taps into.

There is a shamelessly heartfelt sincerity to these tracks, which is extremely refreshing given the number of bands that are currently adopting an 80's influenced sound but are far too self aware and engrossed in cool posturing to cut loose and have fun with it.

The whole album is an absolute delight, but a special mention for 'You, Appearing', 'Kim & Jessie', 'We Own the Sky' and 'Dark Moves of Love'.

Format: Audio CD
This fourth M83 LP takes on where the previous "Before The Dawn..." left off, but an even larger room was made this time for ethereal vocals, whether male or female. From the startling opening "You, Appearing", you know you're in for something special; the subtle trickery of previous works is here, but serves the purpose in a much more soulful (dare I say "human") way.

Tracks such as "Kim & Jessie" (which could provide a nice indie-pop summer hit) or "Up!" sound like how the last (brilliant ortherwise) Goldfrapp LP could have been up to if they had kept their electronic craft, while "Dark Moves Of Love" is the epitome of shoegazing albeit turned to 11 (like the Cocteau Twins jamming with Mercury Rev, if you see what I mean). But the key track here, still, is the forthcoming single, "Couleurs", which, with his obsessive rhythm construction and guitar/keyboards collusive maelstrom, will take you to another level of hypnose and excitement, to heights rarely reached by electronic acts.

A few 80's tricks in the arrangements can't even distract from the fact "Saturdays=Youth" (not such a cryptic title, if you think) is pop as what it always should be; sing-a-long melodies and innovative soundscapes everywhere.

Buy this Album- its stunning and beautiful summerish and summer rainish ,this is in my top 5 fav's, M83's ambience is magickal and encapsulating, its more of a day time into evening listen compared to the darker themes explored in 'Before the dawn heals us'

Stylish/sexy/sleek and sure to be timeless.

the art work is woweeee

Been listening to this album for a little while now, it's well packaged, has the lyrics on the inner sleeve, sounds good makes me wonder what My Bloody Valentine (surely the world's laziest band) would have done if they were still making music, something similar to this? Anyway M83 have their own sound and this is a steal at the price.

This is my favourite M83 album. Coleurs is just sublime and if you're ever lucky enough to see them live just pray they play this (was the encore at Shepherd's Bush this year) then you'll realise the recorded version doesn't do them justice...mind blowing stuff! A 5 star live band!!!!

Bought the M83 double (yes double) album Hurry Up.. on strength of one airplay of Reunion. Then Dead Cities, Red Seas.... Now this. M83 touch seemingly similar bases you mite know. Then throw you rite off track. Always. Love this band; never dull, musically great; fascinating.

There's really not much to say. I bought another album by these guys last year, absolutely loved it, found the existence of this one and ordered it right then.
It arrived quickly and in perfect condition so 5 stars for both album and seller.

I must admit that I'd only heard one song by M83 before hearing this album. I felt inclined to buy it upon hearing the stunning opening track and was not disappointed. Relaxing, electronic bliss.
