M83 - Saturdays = Youth

2008. France

M83 is a french band led by frenchman Anthony Gonzalez. It's sound is a mix of Shoegaze and Electronic music built with reverbs and synthetizers all around in a kind of dreamy/hazy atmosphere.

Saturdays = Youth is their 5th album already and one of the most interesting electronic albums I heard last year. Is very dense, enigmatic and melody focused. For don't know what reason this music gives me a deep sense of nostalgia, and for it's usage of similar samplers as Vangelis Blade Runner OST (btw an outstanding score that I'll cover at some point) it resembles a glimpse of futuristic cities of 80's movies, a very strange touch between past and present... Very weird and therefore difficult to explain but definitely special and pleasant.

Lot of imagery comes from listening to this music: Neon lights, old lomo pictures, nightscapes... Kind of stylish and well-dressed, M83 hits the right key with this one.
