M83's electronic shoegazing starts getting huge on 'Dead Cities, Red Seas and Lost Ghosts', the duo's second record together, in which they began soundscaping their distorted beats and synths into monolithic songs. "In Church" and "Run Into Flowers" both hint at the band that would go on to make the epic double album 'Hurry Up, We're Dreaming', featuring organs and lightning fast synth lines. Even the so-called ambient moments in 'Dead Cities, Red Seas and Lost Ghosts' contain a lot of melody, suggesting M83's move towards a poppier sound. This record comes with a download.
