M83 – Raconte-Moi Une Histoire

November 1, 2011

Last week, we wrote that M83 increases “the scope, size and magnitude of a track until it basically envelopes you, swallowing everything in a five mile radius.” Sure, Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming is epic, but that descriptor doesn’t quite do the diversity of this album justice. This track sounds more Dan Deacon, The Books or Lemon Jelly than anything else on the album that houses it, but it still has the trait that ties Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming together, and that is a confidence. To shoot for the moon, go for broke, (insert cliche here), you have to know you’re up to something special. M83 certainly is.
