Album: M83, Hurry Up, We're Dreaming (Naive)
Sunday 16 October 2011
Anthony Gonzales made a giant leap pop-wards with Saturdays = Youth, and now he's taken it even further.
HUWD's two discs are a towering city of sparkling synth edifices simultaneously summoning the best of the 1980s (New Order, The Cure) and the current breed (The Knife, Empire of the Sun). The band named after a spiral galaxy have, at last, made a record which befits that. It sounds like a soundtrack for the end of the world, or the birth of new worlds. Extraordinary.
