m83 – Hurry Up We’re Dreaming / 2011

m83 hurry up we're dreaming

For epic impact, everyone knows they don’t come much more stadium-sized than M83. Three years since his heart-bursting ‘Saturdays = Youth’, he drops the increasingly ambitious ‘Hurry Up We’re Dreaming!’, hauling Zola Jesus on stage for a cameo role on one of 22 tracks split over 2CDs. Since his last effort M83 mainman Anthony Gonzalez has moved from his native France to LA and cites it as having a big influence on his new sound. And there’s definitely something of an American ebullience to these tracks, a self-congratulatory, iMaxed high-5 grandiosity which could happily soundtrack the “reveal” of a particularly heart-wrenching episode of TV’s Secret Millionaire or a wide angled montage scene from X-Factor.


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.
