M83 - Hurry Up, We're Dreaming (2011)

M83 (aka Anthony Gonzalez) releases his epic new double album, "Hurry Up, We're Dreaming".

Produced by Justin Meldal-Johnsen (Beck, NIN, The Mars Volta, Goldfrapp) and including contributions from Brad Laner (from 90's band Medicine) on guitar, Saturdays=Youth vocalist Morgan Kibby, and guest vocalist Zola Jesus, Hurry Up, We're Dreaming is a double-album journey that takes us to the horizon and introduces us to new landscapes. About awakening, craving, and conquering, Hurry Up, We're Dreaming pushes into new vocal territory for M83. Here we see Gonzalez test out different ways of singing, ranging from a spectral breathy whisper to a howling scream. "I think it is a reflection of my 30 years of being a human being. It's a compilation of all my previous music together. It's a retrospective of myself", says Gonzalez.

The first single, "Midnight City",is a humid, adrenaline-driven dreamlike track, unlike anything we have heard from M83 in the past. "Midnight City" adeptly sweeps you through abandoned concrete streets swimming in broken neon light.

Hurry Up, We're Dreaming is the follow up to the John Hughes inspired and critics' favorite Saturdays=Youth. Pitchfork called it, "An unaccountably alive, complete album", giving it an 8.5 rating while, The New York Times, said "The music recalls the pumping beats and keyboard hooks of the 1980's as if through a haze of time, floating in lush echoes that round off the edges."
