It’s true, I do love M83. Their new long player Digital Shades vol 1 is out now.
M83 make great epic soundscapes. I’m not really sure of the best way to describe them, there’s moments of noisy shoegazing bands like My Bloody Valentine, but crossed with subtler electronic stuff too. If you’re interested in finding out what they sound like you can hear them on their last.fm page.
This new release is perhaps a bit more ambient than a lot of the previous stuff, which is OK in my book.
Reason I’ve blogged about them is that they’re doing a vinyl release that also has a code to download high quality MP3 versions of the tracks. Which as a principle I like.
