Why the new M83 album is kinda boring & pretentious


I generally felt 'excited' about the new M83 album, but I have been trying to give it a few 'spins' [via SpotifyTunes] to try to figure out what it is all abt. It seems like critics are 'creaming their pants' over the new album. M83's usual strategy is to have 2-3 'really, really good songs', have a few songs that are artsy and have kids talking, then some more aggressive filler that says 'take us seriously.' It's a pretty good band model, and probably what modern bleepybloop indie buzzbands should follow.

However, I feel like there are some MASSIVE RED FLAGS abt the vibe of this album. Overall, still probably worth 'endorsing', but some of the vibes that it projects are sorta troublesome if you think about them too much.

These are the RED FLAGS associated with M83.

Red Flag #1: The album is effing 73 minutes long.
It takes an artist with 'their head up their own ass' to make a 'beautiful piece of art.' It's generally a good thing when we trust the artist. However, I'm not sure if Hurry Up, We're Dreaming really needed to be so long. I wonder if they just 'held on' to too many b-sides, or if they honestly believe every1 needs to hear every minute of this epic 'double album.' I wanted to 'stay true' to the album and listen to it uninterrupted, but I ended up doing the thing where I just 'searched 4 the good songs', then I will uncheck the ones that aren't as listenable so they don't harsh my vibes.

I wonder if they should have done something to 'brand' the 2 albums as 'different experiences.' Or maybe just had some 'self control' and buried some of the stray songs. If the album was 20 minutes shorter, this would probably be a 'lock' for album of the year. Instead, we have to deal with their desire to create a 'dreamscape' album experience.

Red Flag #2. Why are they so obsessed with children?
There are a few songs with children talking. I know that 'youth' is a buzzworthy gimmick for Generation Y indie fans, but I feel like u sorta gotta 'grow the eff up' and write an album abt 'grown ass problems' eventually. You can't just be all nostalgic, or else you eventually sound like shoegaze kidzbop. This is actually a great way to 'change the discussion' that usually takes place when an album is being evaluated. When ur singing about KID themes, you focus on 'how it feels' as oppose to obsessing about 'how it sounds' in a technical way. It's a good strategy, but M83 is 'technically mature' enough to make that conversation obsolete, anyways.

Their video for 'Midnight City' has children with super powers. Sorta just wish they'd ease up on the kid vibes. We get it, M83. U wish u still had kid vibes, but instead u just play synths and write lyrics about wanting to be an alt version of Peter Pan.

Do u ever start to ride pedophilia waves when u listen 2 M83?

Red Flag #3. BARELY LEGAL Lolita-wave album art

Piggybacking off the vibes of #2, u sorta just don't know what ur supposed to think when u see this album art. U wanna go spend the night with them? R u into 'babysitter porn'? Do u want to be a kid again? Do u want to be a creepy old man who 'gets off' to vibes of youth? I'm confused.

Red Flag #4:Douchey/Pretentious song titles

Moving beyond the actual title "Hurry Up Yall! We're Effing Dreaming, riding twee waves!", it seems like only M83 would 'get away' with these types of song titles.

-'Intro' ALWAYS BEWARE OF ALBUMS WITH INTROS
-'Outro' BE EVEN MORE WARY OF ALBUMS WITH OUTROS
-'Train To Pluton' WHERE THE EFF IS PLUTON?
-'Raconte-Moi Une Histoire' I GUESS THIS ONE IS OKAY BC THEY ARE FRENCH
-'Year One, One UFO' WHAT THE EFF IS THIS UNSOLVED MYSTERY VIBE?
-'OK Pal' OKAY, WHATEVER.
-'Klaus I Love You' WHO THE EFF IS KLAUS? SANTA KLAUSE? I LOVE HIM 2.
-'Claudia Lewis' WHO THE EFF IS CLAUDIA LEWIS?
-'Steven McQueen' WHO THE EFF IS STEVEN MCQUEEN?

Every1 has dumb song titles when analyzed for face value, but these are just sort of funnie. I guess that is a standard M83 gimmick though [via Running in2 Flowers].

Red Flag #5: They are French.


French indie bands get to be way more naturally pretentious. There is a bigger barrier 2 entry for French bands to invade indie markets, but once they become 'branded' as 'legit', they can do whatever the eff they want, even if what they are singing doesn't make sense. Think about Phoenix. Who the hell knows what Thomas Mars is singing? U sorta assume he just wrote lyrics after taking an English As A Second Language class. Oh well. Every1 loves Phoenix.

Maybe France is just branded as 'artsy', so they can do whatever they want. I guess it sorta works. Justice was successful on their first album. M83 has kept it together. Maybe because they live in France, they aren't as obsessed with the American blogosphere, which seems to have a direct impact on the psyches of many American artists. In France, are u more 'free' 2 be an artist? What American buzzband would be 'easier to digest' 4 critics if they were French?

Whenever a band that speaks English tries to do something that is branded as 'very imaginative', it just comes across as 'trying too hard.' French buzzbands can pull off the most Cirque Du Soleil-wave gimmicks evr.

******

The M83 album has highlights, and is probably worth considering an 'admirable piece of art.' However, these Red Flags might alter the long term legacy of HURRY UP, WE'RE DREAMING.

Do u <3 the new M83?
Is it 'flawless'?
Were u taken on a ride with Anthony Gonzalez?
Do u think the album is 10-20% 'overrated' but still 'really solid'?
R u obsessed with kids/youth?
Did chillwave 'exhaust' the entire nostalgia gimmick?
Are ppl being 'too positive' abt this album?
Is Real Estate's "Days" better?
Has M83 perfected bleepybloop music?
What is the album of 2k11?

Meaningful Music Videos of the Past Blog Month

Just wanted to 'embed some videos' that are 'relevant', yall.

Music Video: Little Boots - New In Town

</embed>

Analysis: I think that this video is about a girl from the United Kingdom coming to America, and getting dropped off in 'a black part of town', and exploring what 'black culture is like.' From this video, we have learned that black people 'live under underpasses', 'like to dance', and 'seem like thugs but might not always hurt u.' Not sure about the song. Think Little Boots might emerge into a female artist who I prefer listening to remixes of, as opposed to 'her actual songs.' But I think that there is 'a huge market' for people who want a product like Little Boots.

Music Video: Kanye West - Amazing

</embed>

Analysis: I think there is a point where an artist 'becomes a brand.' Their music doesn't have to be 'good' or 'inspiring' any more, it just has to have enough elements for the common man to recognize the artist when they are scanning channels on the radio. So while this song is 'boring', 'uninspiring', and the lyrics 'seem like they were a poem written by an inner-city 2nd grader', it doesn't really matter because it is the recognizable brand of Kanye West.

"lets go out and film some amazing shit 4 this music video. Let's get some fucking helicopters and film me standing on cliffs and shit." - Kanye West in a conceptual brainstorming session about what 2 put in his music video for the song "Amazing"

Music Video: Bat for Lashes - Daniel

</embed>

Analysis: It is weird when some1 has a 'really catchy first song' with 'a good first music video' like Bat for Lashes with the song "What's a Girl To Do." I'm not sure if her music is 'still appealing' or even makes sense that the male-dominated music memesphere consumes her/people buy her records. Just seems like a sort of 'aimless' sort of gothy soft rock to me. Think she might be more appealing if she 'wasn't so weird' and '38% more electro.'

Music Video: M83 - We Own the Sky

</embed>

Analysis: Just like every other M83 video, this one involves 'teens who are trying to find themselves' or something like that. The song is 'pretty good', but I am not even sure if this video is 'supposed to be compelling enough to watch.'

Music Video: Moby - Shot in the Back of the Head

</embed>

Analysis: This video was apparently 'directed'/'created' by the famous director David Lynch. Not exactly sure which movies he directed, but I think I read that he was 'Wes Anderson 1.0.' Think that this song is a 'chill' Moby song. I remember when Moby made that album that was strategically engineered to 'go mainstream' since he had a famous person sing on every song. Feel like Moby is an artist who is 'fighting hard' to be authentic/make authentic products. Think I would see this video when I was an impressionable teen staying up late watching MTV2, and 'watch the whole thing' or something.

Music video: The xx - Crystalized

</embed>

Analysis: Never heard of this band, but I watched their video, and I think they have a bunch of 'aesthetics' that I might be able to 'like.' Boy+Girl Duet style. 'Minimal' guitar. Drum Pad. 'Shitty video that I might think is cool.' Both singers might be meme-able homosexuals/sex icons. Not even really sure what I'm supposed to think.

Music Video: Ed Banger Fight - those french people who got into a fight at Cinespace

</embed>

Analysis: Some bro filmed a bunch of French ppl yelling at eachother at Cinespace. Not even sure what happened. Guess we'll never know. Seems important, though. Wish I had something in my life 'worth fighting 4'

Have yall seen n e good/relevant music videos lately?

Which band has the most authentic Music Video Aesthetic?

In a world where we don't watch music videos on TV any more, we are presented with the question, "what makes a music video worth watching on a lil screen?" Overall, I'm just looking for authenticity kinda like every other aspect of my life. I don't like it when videos are 'too viral' because that means they will go mainstream.
Videos must be a little bit of everything:

  • conceptual
  • earnest
  • meaningful
  • arty
  • artsy
  • artistic
  • have a direct relation to my alternative lifestyle
  • retro
  • modern
  • postmodern
  • campy
  • serious
  • not designed to 'go viral.

Which artist has the most authentic music video aesthetic?

Is it M83 with their 80s video camera music videos?

</embed>

M83 - "Graveyard Girl"

Or maybe it's Thieves Like Us with their earnest music videos that remind us what it of what it meant to be young & authentically care about things/relationships.

</embed>

Thieves Like Us - Desire

It's DEFINITELY NOT Ratatat with their College Video Art Project Aesthetic. (If I wuz their professor, I would give them a pity "B-.")

</embed>

Ratatat - "Schempi"

Coldplay's "Viva La Vida" utilizes a Photoshop Smoke Effect. Do yall know how to use photoshop to make ur youtube videos look like children's boox?

</embed>

Coldtug - "Viva La Vida, Yall"

I feel like at this point, it might be Frankmusik. In this video he utilizes the post-pop Tom Hanks in the movie BIG dancing on neon piano keys aesthetic.

</embed>

Frankmusik - "Three Little Words"

Should I Blog more about Thomas Hanks / dancing on supersized piano keys?

Which post-bloghaus/indierock/meaningfulcore band has the most authentic video aesthetic?
What do yall look for in quality videos?

The Future of Fashion


[Photo by Stylesightings]
I feel like if you are an entry-level alt girl looking to build a personal brand that is 'interesting', 'free spirited', 'alt', 'sexie', and 'the kind of girl who talks about "kissing boys" in an "I will be young & prettie 4evr"-kind of way ' on her myspace profile, you could easily take any article of clothing or accessory from these three girls to wear at an alternative event. They could actually open up a fashion consulting business for celebrities who need a 'conservative alt' look from 2009-2011.

I also think girls like these have 'abstract' Myspace/Facebook profile information that compensates for their lack of substance. Most of the time, the inclusion of a taken-out-of-context song lyric from an on-the-rise alt-blog-indie hit. For example, their profile will be something like
***************

wedon'tcareabouttheyoungfolks
//kissingwithoureyesclosed

rooftops and cigarettes

***************
Do u know any1 with a myspace/FB profile with that kind of expressive information in it?

Maybe all we really want is for our lives' to be as meaningful as an M83 music video would appear to be.

"All I ever wanted was a Graveyard Girl."
-an Alt Bro who has a crush on a 17 Year Old Graveyard Girl

But SRSLY...what's the deal with M83 videos being about krazie girls who interact with spirits and stuff like that? Why can't they just try harder to fit in, instead of 'trying to connect with people/have people appreciate them for who they are'?

Is it possible to find a girl who just looks like an entry-level alt Graveyard Girl but isn't a weirdo/isn't obsessed with 'kissing boys'?

I avoided listening to the new M83 until yesterday.


I think I had avoided listening to the new M83 songs/album because 1) I didn't really understand the album art aesthetic, and it kind of creeped me out and 2) when other people write about the SHOEGAZE genre, it always comes across pretty ghey.

I was really into "Teen Angst" and "Run Into Flowers" back in the day, so maybe I was just afraid of being let down... :-(

But yeah, these new songs are pretty ridiculous. I'm sure Sofia Coppola is rolling around in her grave right now, wishing she could use these songs in a movie trailer, or meaningful ending sequence. I'm surprised there aren't more shoegaze bands these days, instead of so many bedroom producers trying to bang out standard electro hits.

The music video for "Graveyard Girl" really makes me want to go back to the 90s, and get an alternative girl pregnant. It seems like we all could have been a lot more authentic if we were alternative back then.

The Most Overrated Bands of 2k12 [Don't Believe the Buzz]


FUCK WHAT THAT LIST TOLD U.
FUCK WHAT UR FRIENDS ON FACEBOOK THINK THEY KNOW.
ALL THAT SHIT IS OVERRATED.
DON'T BE A LAMESTREAMER WHO 'BUYS THE BUZZ.'
SEE THRU THE LIES.
IT'S ALL A BUSINESS, FAVOR FOR FAVOR, SPONSORSHIPS, LIES.

THESE ARE THE MOST OVERRATED BANDS OF 2K12.


11. Purity Ring and Tanlines



I don't really see these groups as 'real bands' even though they are 'trying' as artists to have a vision and message or whatever. They are still compartmentalized into eCommerce projects thru the Pyramid Scheme that is the Corrupt Indie Machine. I feel like they only appeal to people who are still holding on to an idea of 'what indie should look/sound like circa 2k9 post-AnCo bubble.' Whatever. They will play festivals for the next _ years just by virtue of looking/sounding like they do.

10. Grizzly Bear

I can never tell if people think they are 'criminally underrated' or if ppl resent them [via overrated] for excessive quality control and consistent product over time.

Also, I have no idea what that ice skater bitch is doing in this video.

9. Tweens on Youtube



Tweens on Youtube think that their shit doesn't stink. They believe that they are 'creating beautiful art' but they are actually just a new form of content providing for mindless tweens and bored ass ppl. I guess that's all any 'entertainment' really is. I guess we should all just off ourselves.

8. Japandroids

'Emo / emocore is back, yall! Pure emotion. Aggressive Bliss. This is what rocknroll should be about!'

I thought this album was pretty solid, but that's only because I listened to Taking Back Sunday, Dashboard Confessional, Saves the Day and tons of other WEIRD emo/yelling albums between 2k2-2k4. I wonder what people from that 'scene' are doing NOW. However, I feel like Japandroids are 'rock critic bait', just for older dudes who think they are 'holding on to something kewl' by praising this type of music. Seeing them live, and tweeting something positive about their lives' being changed by a single concert.

7. M83

Dude yalls album came out in 2k11. Feels like they are still in 'full album cycle' mode. We get it. U wrote 'Midnight City', which was on a NOW THAT'S WHAT I CALL MUSIC. They are milking it for all its worth, running around on stage emotionally banging on instruments. I guess we should be happy for them [via maximizing their $$$ opportunities], but I hope they 'shelve it' soon.

6. Beach House

Beach House's 'Bloom' wasn't really that great or fresh sounding. They had climbed so high with Teen Dream that a regression to the mean of their output was expected, but still, every1 enjoys creaming their pants over them. That means they are OVERRATED in 2k12, but I guess maybe 'being overrated' is a right that you earn in the indie game. Anyways, this album put me 2 sleep. ZZZZZZZZZZZZ. I guess Beach House needs 'an experimental phase.'

5. Cat Power

I think it's time to stop pretending that Cat Power still has 'talent' worth 'waiting around for. She was 'really hyped' 10 years ago, then tons of female singer-songwriters like Feist stole her market share. She had a bunch of meltdowns, got married to Giovanni Ribisi, converted to scientology because of him, released this most recent album, announced she was no longer with Ribisi, cut her hair, colored it blonde, looked like a past-her-prime-washed-up-porn-star-making-a-comeback, had to cancel her tour due to illness. I believe that she is still in debt to the Scientologists.

Anyways, it's just time to 'give up' on her and stop pretending like she still has something left in the tank. Cat Power is just a formative figure of indie who never panned out. The end.

4. Diplo

Diplo produced Usher's "Climax" and ppl in 2k12 were in this dumb phase of being all like 'dude hiphop r&b is legit, dawg.' The thing is that Diplo doesn't even really 'produce' these. He just has a team of unbranded slaves who are actually making these songs (so no offense to them for their hard work). He is a 'producer/DJ mogul', but part of me hopes he turns into the next Scott Storch [via losing it all] after 'being on top of the game' just because he was addicted to the illusion of the hiphop lifestyle..

We can also blame Diplo for 'signing' Riff Raff and Three Loco. Thanks a lot for 'lending ur brand' to this shit so now 'music content farms' cover it like it is 'real' or something. Super sad. I sorta wish Diplo has stayed with M.I.A. and compromised his career just to 'keep that crazy bitch happy.'

Also 'Expressing Yourself' was an overrated meme. I've seen way better amateur porn on Twitter already. #TittieTuesday

3. Frank Ocean

I actually like Frank Ocean a little bit more than when he first came out. Remember when he CAME OUT [via saying he was gay] to help the buzz with his album? I'm still not sure if he is gay/bi or whatever, but I guess that was a 'good move' by him because now his song is being played on the lamestream radio. I still don't know if he is actually a member of Odd Future, but it seems likely that he will be the only 'member of Odd Future' that ppl will remember in 2-10 years.

Anyways, he is overrated just bc the indie scene is 'so desperate' to phase out 'white dudes on guitar' and now they just want to 'create the next Kanye West' [via 10.0]. It'll never happen. Indie should focus on 'keeping the whites' in power.

2. the xx

I watched/listened to this Jamie xx Boiler Room DJ set and felt confused. Why did Jamie XX let the xx put out such a boring album? He must be so bored to have to 'play live' with the other 2 and their mediocre guitar/bass. Hopefully he releases a remixes album that will probably 'save' Coexist.

For example, here is the song "Reconsider" with Jamie XX's SICK BEATZ.

Here is the boring version without the remixing/beatz.

I really feel like this album would have been 'best of 2k12' if they had just let Jamie XX PIMP OUT these songs.

2k12 was the year that the XX turned in to "The ZZ."

1. Grimes

See that bitch? U might not recognize her. She looks like a fringe alt performer from the year 2k8, playing in the background of a relevant dive bar on an off night. It's actually Grimes, back when she 'looked a mess', but a wholesome alt mess.

I can't believe after 2k12, she has 'evolved' in2 this. A cleaned up 'it girl' wearing borrowed high-end fashions just to be in mainstream magazines.

Sigh...

All of Grimes's 'good' songs have been around for like 2-3 years already. 2k12 was just a boring year, and Grimes 'looked interesting' and 'sounded more interesting' than most shit, so I guess she reaped the benefits. Also she filled up the 'post-LDR vacuum/meme bubble burst'. I have no idea if she can write another good song even though she sees herself as a 'producer', I just think that the next album will be pretty bad, but people will still be like 'dude! new grimes!' because she is 'famous.' Now her shows are filled with those 15-20 year old girls who 'go to a concert in an alt-looking outfit.'

Sigh. I miss the Old Grimes. Back when she would do tons of drugs and suck on titties. Before she was controlled by her label, manager and publicists. Back when she was a liberated artist, not just a corporate entity whose sole purpose was to be featured content (video and photo) on as many media outlets as possible.

Boring.
Overrated.
ZZZZZZZ
R I P 2k12.

Former President Bill Clinton joins M83 on stage 2 play "Midnight City" sax solo

</embed>

President William Jefferson Clinton is known as 'da pimp ass President'. He used to Oval Office to comb Washington DC for pussie, and used the White House as his sex den where hefty bitches would give him hummers, get fingered by cigars, and let him use their face, dress, and breasts as his own personal cum target. U gotta give him props 4 nvr getting impeached. Anyways, one of his passions is playing the saxophone.

Recently, M83 went on the Arsenio Hall show, and spent some time 'playing Midnight City', which means running around the stage, not playing actual instruments, and banging on shit emotionally. President Clinton surprised the entire crowd and indie nation when he joined them on stage 2 deliver the SICK sax solo at the end of the song. Even Arsenio 'pulled a Jimmy Fallon', pretended to be in2 indie bands, and 'lost his shit.'

Tonight, not just the city was our church. The entire nation was our church.

M83's "Midnight City" is a bonafide lamestream club hit. No word on whether or not Bill Clinton will be performing with M83 at certain dates or festivals.

Do u think he only 'pretended 2 play' and instead ran around emotionally, pretending 2 play the sax?
Did Bill Clinton 'kill it' on the saxophone?
Is he a pimp?
Do u think he 'works the sax with his mouf' like he works an political climbing intern's vagine with his mouf?
Is he trying to rally indie voters 2 vote 4 Obama?
Is Bill Clinton 'a bigger pimp' than JFK?
Who do u think pounded more pussie in the Oval Office?
Is M83 OFFICIALLY a lamestream club hit?
R u proud 2 be an American, where at least u know the city is ur church?

M83 pretends to play "Midnight City" on french TV, emotionally bangs on shit for ~3 minutes

Veuillez installer Flash Player pour lire la vid&eacute;o</embed>

If you've ever seen M83 perform live, you understand that it is an emotional process where you watch an entire band pretend to play instruments. They find things to bang on for the duration of the entire show, and eventually ditch the instruments and run around like cheerleaders who are hell bent on convincing u 'this is the most meaningful music ever made!' Unfortunately, that translates better at festivals where it's tons of frat bros coming out to hear their favourite MP3s while they grind up on wannabe indie broads who are half naked.

Anyways, if you enjoy watching Anthony Gonzalez do his little dance moves, then this is the video for you. He emotionally runs into the crowd, then dry humps the cute girl in the band from behind for a little bit. Then a saxophone bro comes out and every1 goes APE SHIT!

M83!
Midnite city!
Still goin strong!
The City is still our church, bitches!

If u ever go to an M83 concert, Anthony Gonzalez just ends up having a meltdown on stage because of the 'beautiful moment' that has been creating with his nostalgic sounds from a romantical childhood. Eventually he collapses and weeps as the other band members run around and 'get the crowd jacked up.' Not sure if it 'translated' on TV. I wonder if he is h8ed in France, which is why he resides in Los Angeles. There's prob just not enough room for Daft Punk/Justice AND M83 in the same country.

R u proud of M83 for writing a song that will be a dance anthem 4evr?
IS there anything left for them 2 do?
Do u like bands that just 'bang on shit' while pretending to play live?
R u 'over' M38?
IS "Midnight City" the ultimate lamestream alt jam of the decade?

The hot BB in M83 shows off her BANGIN BOD at Coachella

Photos via Brooklyn Vegan

M83 is the project of a French guy with the same name as a Mexican from your high school who routinely got In School Suspension (Anthony Gonzalez). However, he isn't the only person in the touring band. It features the live energy of a KEUT BB named Morgan Kibby. She was THE TALK of Coachella, with her risque dress. Her curves our POURING out of her dress, and it was hard to look away from the jumbotrons when you could miss a glance at Morgan Kibby's BANGIN bod.

Do u feel urself vibing 2 her vibe?

Does every band need at least 1 girl who is keut/has a BANGIN BOD?

In addition, M83 also brought out this weird looking thing. Not sure if they do that at every show, or if it is some sort of hazing/prank that they force some one in their crew to do.

Not a very chill vibe, but I guess French people get away with that type of weird shit on the reg.

Do u <3 the M83 bb?
Should she go solo and form a bleepy bloop emotional band?
Do u vibe 2 her BANGIN BOD?
Do u think it is 'effed' that AnthGonzo had Zola Jesus sing on 'Intro' when he had a girl of his own to utilize?

XX BONUS M83 playing Coachella in 2005, before they pandered to mainstream audiences XX

Did M83 make all the right branding moves, or are they 'less authentic' [via their last 2 album cycles]?

Anthony Gonzalez of M83 wants to write Katy Perry's next album 2 go more mainstream


M83 played at Coachella, and it was clear that "Midnight City" is a lamestreamer magnet. So much so that Katy Perry stood in the audience and tweeted about how TOTALLY EPIC M83 is. Anyways, since it is being blogged about, and M83 is becoming this 'hot, new mainstream indie band', blogs are pretending that they are 'going to collab.'

Anthony Gonzalez, frontman of M83 decided to take the meme to the next level by pleading to the internet to contact Katy Perry, letting her know that he wants to produce her next album. Hopefully she can just get what she truly wants: Purchasing a "Midnight City" sample, completely bastardizing the song, leaving every one pissed off.

Here is some bullshit 'music journalism' by some random MTV blog, even though this will probably never happen:

M83's Anthony Gonzalez has taken his widescreen electronica on the road with the likes of Kings of Leon and the Killers. He's recorded a double-disc answer to the Smashing Pumpkins' Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness and has even seen his work show up in the occasional Miley Cyrus song.

But after his set at the Coachella festival this past weekend (yes, there were artists besides Holo-Tupac that performed), he's really dreaming big: He wants to make Katy Perry's next album.

"I think I saw Katy Perry dancing [to] 'Midnight City' yesterday night," Gonzalez wrote on his Facebook page following his performance. "Katy, let me write your next album!"

For the uninitiated, "Midnight City" is the fantastic single off M83's dynamic 2011 double album, Hurry Up, We're Dreaming, and yes, Perry was right in front when Gonzalez played it (here's photographic proof). And following the performance, Perry tweeted, "M83 ONLY." But does any of that mean a collaboration between the two might be in the works?

Should Anthony Gonzalez just 'motorboat' Katy Perry?
Do u <3 when mainstream celebs and alt celebs 'pander' to one another to obtain 'cred'?
Should Katy Perry join M83?
Should we all just kill ourselves b4 this collab comes 2 fruition?
Is M83's "Midnight City" the song of the decade?

Katy Perry watches M83 at Coachella. Is the city her church?


Coachella is a relevant music festival where tons of mainstream celebs show up to watch mostly mainstream headliners, but they also 'stop by' to see buzz indie-world acts to boost their indie cred. It seems like Katy Perry went to see M83 at Coachella, and did the whole 'fan girl thing' where she acts like it is the best thing in the world, when she probably only really sees some French dude and tons of people banging on shit while bleepy bloops are bleepy blooping. I guess she is just doing her best to not be perceived as 'too mainstream'. Maybe she just did a bunch of molly and ended up in that tent, or something.

Here is some cheesy lamestream blog recap (aka how the mainstream world interprets this meme):

Katy Perry dances the night away at the 2012 Coachella Music Festival on Friday (April 13) in Indio, Calif.

The 27-year-old entertainer jammed out while the band M83 rocked the house! “M83 ONLY” Katy tweeted after their performance.

This begs the question(s)...
Is the city ALSO Katy Perry's church?
Has the church gone mainstream now?
Has the city gone mainstream?

Do u still consider the city ur church?
Do u not want the city to be ur church if Katy Perry is vibing there too?
Is Katy Perry 'trying too hard' to be 'alt'?

M83 releases new EP cover & they are still obsessed with children.

m83 reunion album cover
M83 is an inspirational EPIC bleepbloop band that wrote the hit song "Midnight City" in 2k11. It was so popular that lamestreamers were all like 'This song is the effing shit!' and now they are played at lamestream/wannabe-alt 'dance nights' all across the world. Anyways, they have a new EP or single or something for the song "Reunion." No1 cares bc it is already on the album, but what's interesting is the album art. There's kids on it.

M83 is obsessed with kids. All of their videos and albums have mad kids on them.

Remember when we were supposed 2 hurry up and dream straight into these kids' bedroom?

Feels like they really 'got younger' on this album cycle

We get it. Youth. Nostalgia. Youthfulness. Pedophilia waves. Images of Youth. French New Wave. Antoine Broinel. Innocence. Purity. Pure Vibes. Sorta just wanna hang with adults, talk about grownup problems like 'rent' and 'taxes', and drink a cold one.

M83 will release the Reunion EP on May 8th, 2012 through Mute, the second single to be taken from the hugely acclaimed fifth album Hurry Up We’re Dreaming, the double album that hit number 15 on the US Billboard charts and topped the electronic and alternative charts.

Has M83 'gone too far' with the children's imagery?
Is M83 'overrated' in 2k11 bc "Midnite Citay" was so 'good'?
Is "Reunion" the 2nd best song on the album?

"Who-oah Whoa-O-Oh-o-oah." -Anthony Gonzalez

Do u evr feel like Anthony Gonzalez of M83 is the Peter Pan of indie?

Did the girl from M83 rip off Maddie Follin from Cults' personal brand?


M83 wrote the hit 2k11 anthem "Midnight City", a religious song about finding faith in the city, which then becomes your church. Anyways, there is some girl in that band named Morgan Kibby. Tons of readers have been emailing me BEGGING for more Morgan Kibby coverage. In this photograph, it seems like Morgan Kibby looks A LOT like some1 that the blogosphere already knows: Maddie Follin from Cults.

Do u think that no other girl in indie should be allowed to swoop her hair/long bangs over her eyes to be 'mysterious' or has Madeline Follin already established this as HER brand?

This would be like if some1 copied Vicki LeGrand's curly mop...
Or if some1 copied Zooey Deschanel's baby blues...
Or Feist's signature bangs...
Or if some1 had the name Alice Glass when Alice Glass already existed...

Madeline Follin has established herself as and indie diva, often singing the lyrics, "We should go outside, yall." Critics could argue for days abt whether Midnite City or Go Outside is a better song, but in the end, maybe we should all just Go Outside at Midnight and Hang Out in the City (Our Church).

Is Morgan Kibby the prettiest BB in indie?

Should Morgan Kibby 'go solo' from M83?
Is Anthony Gonzalez 'nothing' without The Kibbinator?
Do u think Anthony Gonzalez is as mean and controlling as Dave Longstreth of Dirty Projectors?

M83 frontman Anthony Gonzalez wears dorky lightning bolt guitar strap

Photo via Brooklyn Vegan

Tony, Toni, Tone...
What were u thinking, Tony Gonzalez?
I know ur from France
being the frontman of M83

But cmon bro...
Lighting bolt guitar strap?
Ur the lead singer of a relevant buzzband
And ur wearing a lighting bolt strap?

Cmon bro...
Ur a ROCK STAR
If I were a tween who wanted to play guitar
and my cool stepdad took me 2 guitar center
to buy a crappy starter guitar that would eventually gather dust
I might pick that strap

But ur a ROCK STAR
U eat PUSSIE 4 lunch, bro
Ur above the lightning bolt
Maybe go for something 'classic' / solid

Hell, maybe get something customized
Maybe ur strap could say 'The EmEighteethrees'
Or 'Tony Effing Gonzo'
or 'Hurry Up.We're Dreaming...'

I'm just sayin', bro
Man Up
It's time 2 leave behind ur old guitar strap
goodnite, sweet lighting bolt

Oh Tony Gonzalez... What are we going 2 do with u, bb!?

Is Anthony Gonzalez the hottest hunk in indie?
Do u vibe 2 his guitar strap, or should he be 'more mature'?
What is the most authentic guitar strap?
Is the electro lighting bolt 'actually pretty chill'?

☨ ☨ ☨ Tony Gonzalez and the Meightythrees ☨ ☨ ☨

Do u <3 Anthony Gonzalez? Is he an indie hunk>
Is 'Midnight City' the song of the year, or does it 'sound terrible' on live TV?
Do they play enough instruments or just emotionally bang on shit?
Is the girl in M83 one of the hottest bbs in indie?
Is the City Ur Church [via the city is my church]?

Some bro does a vocal audition to join M83


M83's hit song 'Midnight City' might be the best of the year. It's a shame that they didn't write anything else as solid on the album except for airy synth bleepy bloops with children talking over it and frogs ribbetting. Don't get me wrong, I'll ride ribbet waves every now and then, but can I sit thru a ribbet-wave double album? No.

Anyways, this bro decided to 'take it upon himself' to 'save' M83. He auditioned to be a backup singer for the band, using his own voice to imitate the bleeps and bloops of M83. I wouldn't be surprised if he is offered a 1 year contract with benefits. His voice would be the perfect complementary element to M83's live set, and he might help Anthony Gonzalez overcome any vocal shortcomings that critics have with his band.

Did this bro 'fix' Midnight City?
Do u <3 M83?
Album of the year?
Song of the year?
Backup singer of the year?
Should he be let in2 the band?
M83: Overrated or underrated?

M83 breaks the 9.0 barrier, writes 'gushing' review. Is it the album of 2k11?


M83 is a French new wave shoe gaze wave band that writes 'epic jams' that sound as vibey as authentic jams from the past, so they have made a career out of 'replicating' pre-existing aesthetics, rebranding them as modern, building a context where the audience is forced to evaluate their work based on feelings & emotions, and every1 likes them. You have to give them props for their brand, but they should still probably strive for a bit more mainstream success. ANyways, they got a 9.1 on Pitchfork, which means that they 'might be a frontrunner for album of the year'.

Do u like the new album, or is it 'more of the same'?
Does it inspire u and make u 'feel hope'?
Do u want 2 hurry up and dream?
Is M83 authentic, or do they just 'exploit' nostalgic feelings in a more direct way than chillwave?
ARe they 'innovative' or do they just 'rip off' other sounds/genres?

It really seems like this review was a 'massive spoogefest.' Feels like the Lord Savior Jesus Christ inhabited AnGo's (aka Anthony Gonzalez's) body 2 make this album.

This sounds like the most flattering paragraph ever written abt a band. Must be the album of the year.

Well, throughout the past decade, the 30-year old Gonzalez has honored the tremendous impact of growing up during the golden age of CD buying by implicitly serving as a patron saint for those who treat the weekly trip to the record store as a pilgrimage and still covet the album as a physical proposition: His output always comes stylishly packaged, with cover art worth obsessing over and credits that need to be scoured in order to spot the guest appearances. Unsurprisingly, he ups the ante here by aspiring to what is still the paradigm of artistic permanence, both in terms of legacy and tactility: the double album, that occasionally ambitious, usually decadent, and almost always fascinatingly flawed endeavor of musicians convinced (rightfully or otherwise) that they're at the peak of their own powers. Hurry Up, We're Dreaming might be all of those things, but above all else, it's the best M83 record yet.

Anthony Gonzalez no longer hides behind grappy murmur singing.

But the most crucial change is how touring with the likes of Depeche Mode has inspired a newfound showmanship in his vocals: Previously, Gonzalez enlisted outside help, piped in plot-advancing narratives, or sang in a low, tentative murmur that submitted to its massive surroundings.

I could be convinced that this is the greatest album ever based on this review.

Few artists make more ingenious use of the sheer physics of rock to this extent-- defining which synth pads strike which emotional pressure points, using percussion as explosives rather than mere elements of timekeeping, coiling the tension of a verse to make every chorus feel phenomenally cathartic even without any words.

This album will make ur life better. NEVER GIVE UP ON UR DREAMS. NEVER GIVE UP [via hurry up {via dream}]

Surely, but Gonzalez never comes off like he's selling a brand, a lifestyle, or even himself-- his lyrics remain as opaque as ever. Hurry Up instead serves as a framework to realize the marvelous capability of our dreams and daily lives, should we be open to experiencing it.

Is this the album of 2k11?
Have u ever read a p4k review that was so directly flattering?
Do u vibe 2 this album?
Is M83 officially 'a top 10 indie band of all time'?
Is Anthony Gonzalez 'more genius' than any indie genius?
Do u vibe 2 this album?
Is M83 'too gimmicky'?
Is M83 the only buzzworthy band in 2k11?
Did M83 'save us' from 'the flames' [via Bon Iver being considered album of the year]?

M83 puts some alt floozies on the cover of their album. Are they totally TUGGABLE?


M83 has some new album coming out, and I'm sure it will be good, with the synthy bleep bloop shoes gazie wavies that make them so popular. I'm not really concerned/interested in all that. Check out their album cover 4 "Hurry Up, We're Dreaming." Those are 2 TOTALLY KEUT alt floozies.

Nothing gets my alternative peen harder than a pair of altfloozies staring right at me. I start 2 wonder everything abt them. How long have they been alt 4...? What kind of music do they listen 2? Where do they shop? Are they going 2 Coachella? What type of alcoholic beverage do they drink? What alt space on which alt part of town do they live on? What do they like doing in their alt free time? What kind of alt guy are they in2? Can I be alt enough 2 be the man of their dreams?

M83 understands that 'sex sells', and their target market will certainly cream their pants to this alternative image.

Do u <3 M83?
Will they break the 9.0 barrier?
Is their music 'fresh' or do they just keep their brand consistent?
Have u ever 'pleasured urself' 2 album art?
Have u been vibing 2 their vibes or not?

Midnight City by M83

Do u <3 alt floozies, or are they too floozie/alt?

Shoegazewave band M83 makes a 'deep' teaser video 4 their next album

</embed>

M83 is a buzzband that makes shoegazey wave music. It is pretty alright, but they basically just rip off aesthetics then all of the reviews praise them 4 how well they mimicked the existing aesthetic. I dig the gimmick, though, but it helps that they are French bc most Americans look insane when they make this kind of cheesy teaser video. Ppl from Iceland can definitely pull this type of shit, though.

Anyways, the M83 bro pops a floppy disc into a synth 2 prove he is TOTES authetic. Then tons of 'epic' noises are produced, saying, 'We are ready to launch a new album cycle.'

Do true alts have synth racks instead of mahogany book shelves with leatherbound books? Or just IKEA book shelves with Criterion Collection DVDs?
Do u <3 M83?
Can they reach 9.0 status, or are they a 'novelty act'?
Are they an authentic shoegaze?
Are they 'better than AIR'?
Do u <3 this video teaser or is it 'mad cheeseballwave'?
