What music are you listening to part 3

I've had M83's latest double album "Hurry Up, We're Dreaming" playing repeatedly on my (U2 Special Edition) iPod since I picked up the discs in April. I've also been listening to their excellent "Saturdays = Youth" album from 2008 which is an album that I recall The Edge said he listened a lot to prior to the release of NLOTH.


There are echoes of "The Joshua Tree" in "Hurry Up..." both conceptually and literally: M83's frontman Anthony Gonzalez moved from his native France to Los Angeles and spent lot of time going on solo roadtrips to explore America. One of those trips was to Joshua Tree National Park where he wrote some of the tracks.


IMO, the album's opening track "Intro" sounds like "Where The Streets Have No Name 2012". Other standout tracks are "Midnight City" (broodingly funky synth metal), "Reunion" (perfect song to set an 80's-themed action scene to) and "Steve McQueen" (what joy must sound like when it's strapped to a rocket ship aimed for heaven).


Here are the (thematically linked) videos for



Note the shout out to the late great Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys at the 0:43 mark during the video for "Reunion".

M83's "We Own the Sky" = GREAT


Was listening to Massive Attack's "Girl I Love You" off the Heligoland album at lunch, Saint Etienne's "Like A Motorway" and Royksopp's "Sombre Detune".


Will post the full tracklist when I get home. Made a sample CD for a fellow James fan on the daisy Chain FB page. Music exchange just like the good old days of tape trees.
