Vibrations Preview – July 2009 Issue 8

M83 promoM83 @ The Cockpit, 8th July

If the phrase ambient electronica fills you will cynicism, fear not. M83, or if you prefer, the work of Anthony Gonzalez, is far from just self-indulgent noise. Whilst his earlier albums were as much about capturing a mood as they were communicating more traditional narratives, 2008’s Saturdays = Youth marked the perfect marriage of his unique style with more conventional indie pop structures, spawning such gems as singles ‘Graveyard Girl’ and ‘Kim and Jessie’. Fresh off support duties with Kings of Leon and Depeche Mode, Gonzalez has both the edgy sound and hip friends to boot. You never know, you just might like it.
