Well this is embarrassing. The reason Dowks and I rebonded (yes. I’m making that a word.) is due to a band that neither of us have bothered to mention here. In the midst of the holy terror that was writing my thesis, I listened to three albums in an obsessive cycle and one of them was M83’s ‘Before The Dawn Heals Us’. While my favorite song on it changes over the years, this album continue to holds an intensely dear place in my heart that has only been challenged by the next M83 album ‘Saturdays=Youth’ for my affections and number one status.
But now there is a new contender. ‘Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming’ is going to be a DOUBLE album coming out in October with a sneak preview track out called ‘Midnight City’. It is all the dreamy electronic pop associated with M83 and I will once again have to decide which album will make it to the desert island.
