Anthony Gonzalez

Music Monday: ‘Kim and Jesse’

Hey Milieu Pals,

It is Music Monday and thus time for another Vivaciously Varietal Vibe!

Rationale: Another fantastic Zune Marketplace discovery and purchase. Below is a succinct overview of the album and expresses almost exactly the way I feel when listening to M83.

“Like fellow Frenchmen Air and Daft Punk, M83‘s Anthony Gonzalez has the knack for making sounds others might think of as outdated, or even tacky, into music that feels stylish and fresh. Saturdays=Youth lives up to its evocative title, but the youth it captures is filtered through nostalgia for the unrepentantly fake sounds of the ’80s, transforming them into delicate fantasy pop. Synths whoosh like wind tunnels and ping like lasers, guitars are whipped into ethereal froth, the drums are robotic and proud of it, and the production reproduces the cleaner-than-clean, almost brittle style of the era almost too perfectly” (Heather Phares, All Music Guide)

‘Kim and Jesse’ by M83 from the album ‘Saturdays = Youth’

As always, whenever I post about Vivaciously Varietal Vibes on Music Monday’s, simply click on the name of the song to be taken to a web page that displays the songs lyrics.

Until the next time “Milieunairs”!
