Finally. M83 – Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming

M83‘s new album, Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming, was released today – the group’s first album since 2008′s Saturdays = Youth.  I obviously haven’t spent a lot of time listening to it yet, but on first listen it feels like the best parts of Saturdays = Youth and Before the Dawn Heals Us with a lot of their respective weaknesses stripped out.  Not sure I need the vocals on “Raconte-moi Une Histoire,” but otherwise I can’t find a really obvious fault here.  I’m also very glad to see the return of a lot of the epic, ambient/shoegaze soundscapes and beautiful little interludes that for inexplicable reasons got left on the cutting room floor when Saturdays = Youth was produced (while still not jettisoning the pop anthems that made Saturdays so popular, especially with first-time listeners).  It’s on spotify, so check it out.  Favorite tracks (excluding interludes) on first listen, in order of appearance:

  • Intro
  • Midnight City
  • Wait
  • Claudia Lewis
  • New Map
  • OK Pal
  • Echoes of Mine
  • Outro
