I thought of digging up the 2-by-2 concept but actually transforming it into a 4-by-1 for once. This is another post regarding what I’ve been listening to this past couple of days, which is no other than M83. From their stunning debut album Dead Cities, Read Seas & Lost Ghosts back in 2003 to their follow-up in 2004 with Before the Dawn Heals Us (which saw the departure of Fromageau) and this year’s acclaimed Saturdays=Youth, M83 offer shoegazing ambient pop similar to their countrymen Air. Their last album is more synth pop rather than ambient, still it manages to travel us into their personal galaxy as in their previous albums (although the very first trip with Unrecorded remains unforgettable). The band (or Gonzalez to be more precise) is visiting us here in Athens on the 4th of October and we are looking forward to some more on-stage space trips this time. Until then, enjoy 4 videos from all 3 of their albums.
