    Hurry Up, We're Dreaming (Colored Vinyl) (Awaiting Repress)

    Pressed On Clear Pink & Clear Blue Vinyl


    With these soft spoken words on the simply-titled opening track-"Intro"- M83 mastermind Anthony Gonzalez introduces us to his sixth record and first double disc album, Hurry Up, We're Dreaming.


    Dauntlessly singing into the void that was left behind since Saturdays=Youth, Gonzalez suddenly surges with overwhelming emotion as the music mounts an invisible precipice. Historically, he softly eased you into his world, introducing you to the lush and radiant spaces between captivating melodies and intimate lyrics, but not this time. Not on this record.


    Graduating from the fuzzy, fumbling emotional cobwebs and draped ambiance of past records, Hurry Up, We're Dreaming careens past its audience. Brazenly stretching out along the horizon, spilling glittery, golden arms of sound across the landscape, it holds your breath hostage without you even noticing you were missing it. If it seemed that Anthony was basking in the sunshine-drenched days of his youth when he released Saturdays in 2008, then it can be said that in 2011, at the age of 30, he is tempestuously charging towards his future with Hurry Up, We're Dreaming.


    Relocating to Los Angeles from Antibes, Gonzalez surrounded himself with players pivotal to completing his childhood dream of a double disc record. Producer Justin Meldal-Johnsen (Beck, NIN, The Mars Volta, Goldfrapp) and guitarist Brad Laner (from 90s band Medicine) had been hugely influential on Anthony growing up and now were central to the new record's creation.


    "In France there is this show on TV where at the end there is a musical guest who plays one or two songs. I remember one night when I was a teenager being at home watching the best of performances and looking at this crazy bass player with a big afro and thinking, 'Wow this guy is so cool.' "And now I am working with him. It's so intense that thinking about it makes me feel weird. But it's weird in a super good way. Same thing with Brad, I was listening to his music when I was first getting into music and now he's on my album."


    Anthony and Justin met backstage in 2009 at Scotland's T In The Park. Later, "he came to me very genuinely stating that 'he was a fan and that he would love to work with me,'" explains Gonzalez. "I love when people do that because I can tell it's coming from the heart. He was sincere and that's the way I like to work with people."


    Stepping away from his work with producers Ken Thomas and Ewan Pearson on Saturday, Gonzalez freckles his new chapter with signature M83 fingerprints while pushing himself beyond the constricting emotions of a guarded musician. Bored with being frustrated and shy, Anthony is respectful of the precious time given to him and doesn't want to leave behind any regrets, thus thrusting himself into the spotlight vocally. He tests out different ways of singing, ranging from a spectral breathy whisper to a howling scream, and each voice clings to us like a dew-heavy spider web at dawn.


    Fans will recognize band member Morgan Kibby, her vocals flirting with the shadowy places in between verses, leaping off the record in spoken word or blending with an adult choir. Morgan will join Anthony on tour but she was never meant to sing as much on this record as she had on pervious projects. Quenching his desire to work with a different person on each record, Gonzalez added LA-based chanteuse Zola Jesus to the mix for the completion of "Intro." "The song was already written but I really wanted a female vocal on it and I was kind of struggling to find the right person, but then I heard her music and it just made sense."


    Where Saturday=Youth is drenched in lustful exploration and hungry adolescent wonder, Hurry Up is decadently cunning and seductive. "Intro" and "My tears are becoming a sea" eerily croon to you, swirling all of the glitter and growth from the past records into an epic swell, mysteriously and dramatically warning you of the impact you are about to experience. "Midnight City" (disc one) and "OK Pal" (disc two) are humid, adrenaline driven dreams unlike anything we have heard from M83 in the past. "Midnight City" adeptly sweeps you through abandoned concrete streets swimming in broken neon light and aggressively pushing and pulsating to synthetic beats. While "OK Pal" catcalls you to a locker full of mapped out Peter Gabriel-esque echoing lyrics, leaving you stranded in a post-apocalyptic landscape. These journeys are about awakening, craving and conquering. Throughout Hurry Up, We're Dreaming Anthony carries the listener to different countries of sound in his own universe, "We didn't need a story, we didn't need a real world. We just had to keep walking and we became the stories- we became the places." Drifting away from his previous records and reigned in politeness he unleashes all that he has been dreaming of and yearning for. Even when he takes a second to look back on "Echoes of Mine" the velvety, elderly voice of a woman heartbreakingly tells the story of a girl drenched in the shadows of her youth, knowing she has to grow up.


    Grandiose in scale and inspired by Smashing Pumpkin's revered double disc Melancholy & The Infinite Sadness, Anthony has long had the goal to create his own monumental double disc record. "I saw when I was a teenager that I could dig into it [the album]. It was like a treasure. If I were a teenager nowadays I would try to find something as creative as this album. They had so much to say in their songs."


    Impressed with the juxtaposing sun and moon artwork featured on Melancholy, Anthony focuses in on another natural duality: siblings. The cover artwork mirrors this relationship, featuring a photograph of a little boy with a little girl sitting on a bed. The photograph perpetuates the conversation for the two distinct voices we behind each disc, representing two sides of an overall piece that are almost the same. "I want people to listen to it as two different human beings that are connected somehow, but every song on the album has a secret on the other side."


    Soaring and scraping up against the sky while sharing each uncharted frontier with new collaborators is what M83 does best. Gracefully coming into the next decade of his life, Anthony delivers what makes each record sincere, innocent, and full of joy: he gives us his past and his future.


    "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."

    Dead Cities, Red Seas & Lost Ghosts

    "The sound is absolutely huge, its relentless attention to detail eclipsed only by
    the stunning emotional power it conveys." - Vice


    Dead Cities, Red Seas & Lost Ghosts is the second
    studio album by M83 who were, at the time the duo
    Anthony Gonzalez and Nicolas Fromageau. Released in
    2004 by Mute, this was the album that initially brought
    them to wider acclaim in the US, and was followed
    by their first US tour. Key tracks include, "Run Into
    Flowers", "America", and "Unrecorded."


    M83 has since gone on to release 2011's Grammy-nominated double album, Hurry Up, We're Dreaming
    (which contains platinum single, "Midnight City"). M83
    scored the soundtrack for the 2013 film, Oblivion (with
    Tom Cruise), the soundtrack to French film, You and
    the Night (the directorial debut of his brother, Yann
    Gonzalez), and most recently contributed the original
    track, "I Need You" to the 2014 film, Divergent. M83
    is currently considered one of the top electronic music
    artists in the world.

    You and the Night Soundtrack


    "This score is really for lovers and ghosts." -Anthony Gonzalez


    M83 is excited to announce their latest collaboration: the soundtrack to Yann Gonzalez's first feature film, You And The Night. Anthony warns that You And The Night is not a typical M83 release. "People who only like "Midnight City" are going to be disappointed. Mellow and romantic, this soundtrack pays tribute to French soundtracks from the 70s and is much more intimate than Hurry Up, We're Dreaming and the Oblivion Soundtrack. This score is really for lovers and ghosts."


    Growing up together in Antibes, France, Anthony and his brother Yann were both inspired from an early age by European filmmakers such as Luis Bunuel, Alejandro Jodorowsky and Pier Paolo Pasolini. Similar themes underline each of their individual artistic expressions, via both film and music: an appreciation for the majesty of hope and an overall embrace of humanity. Describing his career up until now, Yann explains "if all of my films are put together they form a kind of ensemble, a sort of community. And that is precisely what You And The Night is about: an emotional community, the utopia of a community." For the Gonzalez brothers community and family allowed them to grow into their roles as filmmakers and musicians, so when the time came to chose someone to create a soundtrack for his first feature film it was obvious that Yann would look to work with his brother. "Music is an organic part of the films I make." "M83's compositions bring together the most diverse kinds of music that can only communicate in the end through the logic of emotion and the faith you place in them."


    For Anthony You And The Night is a film about love, loss, new love and melancholia. He comments "The movie is very emotional and it's the movie of my brother, so it was a very important project for me. Yet as we share the same values, have the same artistic influences, it was also a very natural and uncomplicated process."


    In creating this sultry and luminous soundtrack Anthony reunited with several of his previous collaborators. Joe Trapanese (Oblivion, Hurry Up, We're Dreaming) returned to assist with the orchestral arrangements, whilst long-term M83 collaborator Morgan Kibby (M83, White Sea) and Susanne Sundfør (Oblivion) performed vocals on several tracks on the album. Evolving from their time working together on Oblivion's title track, it seemed a natural step for Sundfør to become involved in the recording sessions for You And The Night. Susanne comments "It was very inspiring to see how Anthony works and how his perfectionism and high ambitions brought out the best in everyone around him. It's something I'm grateful to have been a part of, and I think the soundtrack ended up sounding beautiful and mystical, just like the movie."


    Once again You And The Night highlights the musical richness of M83 and adds an impressive chapter to the growing repertoire of work that Gonzalez has produced since his initial, self-titled release. M83, in 2001, right through to the 2011 Grammy Nominated release Nominated Hurry Up, We're Dreaming, which included the platinum selling hit-single "Midnight City".


    Though of course, as Anthony warns, don't expect to hear anything like that on this record!

    Before The Dawn Heals Us

    "A symphony of dreamy synths and soaring guitar fuzz gloriously fluctuates between ecstasy and panic... A-"
    - Entertainment Weekly


    Before the Dawn Heals Us is the third studio album by
    M83, the first since departure of founding member Nicolas
    Fromageau. The album was originally released on Mute in
    2005 and saw the band's profile continue to rise. Several
    tracks were used in high profile sync placements including
    "Don't Save Us From the Flames" in a 2006 Pontiac
    commercial and "*" in a 2011 Red Bull advertisement
    featuring snowboarder Travis Rice. Key tracks include
    "Don't Save Us From the Flames", "*" and "Teen Angst."


    M83 has since gone on to release 2011's Grammy-nominated
    double album, Hurry Up, We're Dreaming (which contains
    platinum single, "Midnight City"). M83 scored the soundtrack
    for the 2013 film, Oblivion (with Tom Cruise), the soundtrack
    to French film, You and the Night (the directorial debut of his
    brother, Yann Gonzalez), and most recently contributed the

    Junk

    "On the last album, there was too much of me." That's how Anthony
    Gonzalez - the sonic auteur behind that most sublime purveyor of
    symphonic-indie-electronic-dream pop, M83, describes the primary
    inspiration behind his forthcoming album Junk, released on April 8 by Mute.
    Highly anticipated, Junk is not just M83's first studio artist album in half
    a decade; it's also the follow-up to Hurry Up, We're Dreaming - which
    upon release in 2011 put M83 in the direct current of the mainstream. So
    why would Gonzalez try to remove himself from its follow-up and supplant
    himself with the surprising likes of Beck and Steve Vai. Wait, Steve Vai?
    The legendary virtuoso guitar hero who defined an era? On a M83 album in
    2016?


    In trying to "remove" his identifiable musical presence, ironically Gonzalez
    may have made one of his most personal efforts yet in Junk and with no
    compromise. With Junk, M83 has succeeded in making what Gonzalez
    called "an organized mess - a collection of songs that aren't made to live
    with each other, yet somehow work together. From album opener "Do It
    Try It", a fractured yet catchy mÉlange of old-school house music pianos
    and pop-art bubblegum hooks worthy of ABBA, to "Moon Crystal," an
    instrumental whose mutant retro-futurist grooves evoke Genesis doing a
    prog-disco remix of the Love Boat theme, to the smooth new wave-meets-electro-funk
    workout "Time Wind" (featuring vocals by Beck) to "Go!", an
    exultant synth-pop charmer featuring vocals from new M83 collaborator
    Mai Lan and guitar solo from legendary shredder, Steve Vai, one thing is
    perfectly clear: "Every time I make a M83 album, I'm trying to do it on my
    own terms - and it's the same for this one," Gonzalez says. "Whatever I do,
    whatever influences I have, it ends up sounding like me. As a musician, I'm
    just trying to take you somewhere else, beyond your world."

    Saved


    The title of Now, Now's first new album in half a decade begs the obvious
    question Saved from what? They certainly didn't seem like a band that
    needed saving after the release of their 2012 LP Threads. When the world
    last heard from Now, Now, they had made their late night TV debut with
    Jimmy Fallon, and landed tours and shows with bands including Fun. and
    Bob Mould, among others. For better or worse, the usual path for any band
    that seems like they're on the cusp of a breakthrough is to strike while the
    iron is hot. That is, to hurry back to the studio to work with a proven producer
    known for having a hand in a few big records. Bands and artists that find
    themselves in this situation are compelled to "go big, or go home," and in
    Now, Now's case they did just that, they went home.


    It might not have been planned that way, but that's where they ended up--
    back in Minneapolis without a clear sense of how to move forward. Despite
    any success or acclamation earned up to that point, self-doubt set in, and
    a crippling writers block entrenched itself further. Weeks became months,
    and months dissolved into years, all while the band's modest but fervent
    fanbase were left to speculate on social media as to what was behind the
    silence. At a particularly low point relates KC, "I felt like I was pursuing the
    wrong dream, that maybe something else would reveal itself to me."


    She felt pressure from both herself and those around her so immense that it
    froze her. "It felt like everyone was mistaking how much I was obsessing
    over the album for not caring about the album, but in reality I was putting too
    much pressure on myself to be able to write. So it felt like everyone was angry
    with me on top of me feeling like I was ruining my career and disappointing
    myself." As a result she reveals, "I had some very difficult conversations with
    myself and with people close to me who were worried about my happiness."


    "I still carry a little bit of guilt for adding to that stress that KC is talking about,"
    reveals Brad. "After a year of people around us asking 'why is the album not
    done, your career is about to just be over,' I as well started to question my
    career choice, to question my talent, and I started buying into this idea that
    KC wasn't working, even though I was right there watching her work. That's
    something I'm embarrassed by and wish I could take back. But through that
    we got stronger as friends and collaborators, and I learned the hard way that
    the only reason we make music is for ourselves."
