Taken from M83’s 2016 album Junk, GO! Features vocals by Mai Lan and has been put together here with two remixes(a relatively stripped back one from Deakin of Animal Collective, and a super cheeky 8-bit version) as well as a completely unheard and unreleased track which, again, features Mai Lan on vocal duties.

White Sea (aka Morgan Kibby)’s past lies in The Romanovs and in her key role in M83’s best loved albums. Tropical Odds is her second full-length outing as a solo artist, and it boasts supermassive pop hooks and lush synths all round. White Sea’s work basically carries that addictive M83 DNA and carries it into even popper realms. Yay! Out on Les Disques du Crepuscule.
The new album from Anthony Gonzalez’ blockbuster synth-pop project M83 is packed to the gills with fluorescent sounds, with influences taken from all Gonzalez’ favourite genres. Junk features some of the deepest 80’s worship we’ve yet heard from M83, as on ‘Do It, Try It’: just listen out for the slap-bass! CD or double vinyl editions available, on Naive.

M83 is the debut studio album by M83, recorded in 2000 and originally on Mute in 2005. Produced by both M83 and Morgan Daguenet, the album is predominately instrumental, with dialogue samples from various films and television programs appearing across the songs. The track titles, if read sequentially, form a short story.
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.
Run Into Flowers
On a White Lake, near a Green Mountain
Beauties Can Die
2008-vintage epic synth-pop with a shoegaze aesthetic, reissued on the Naive label. It was with this album that M83 really embraced his more pop-friendly side, whilst still swirling everything together with synths upon synths. Saturdays = Youth, which features tunes like ‘Graveyard Girl’ and ‘Kim & Jessie’, is re-pressed to 180g double vinyl.
The first in M83’s ongoing ambient series Digital Shades, founding member Anthony Gonzales explores a world of M83 songs, but without those pummeling drums. Volume 1 focuses on Brian Eno-esque drifting pianos and synthesizers, but claims more of your attention than, for example, Music for Airports.
