M83 & HAIM – “Holes In The Sky”

The soundtrack album for last year's young-adult sci-fi epic Insurgent featured some striking pairings, like Kendrick Lamar with Tame Impala, or A$AP Rocky with Gesaffelstein. Insurgent, the next movie in the Divergent saga, seems like it'll continue that trend. The first single from the Insurgent soundtrack is "Holes In The Sky," which pair… More »

30 Essential Post-Rock Songs

Above all else, the Wikipedia entry on post-rock exemplifies how difficult it can be to pin down movements in music: Did the genre begin in the '90s? The '80s? The term was coined a little over 20 years ago, in 1994, by Simon Reynolds in the pages of Mojo. Perhaps, however, its vocabulary of texture… More »

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

The music gods were really kind this week. We had maybe a dozen legit songs in contention for this week's 5 Best, and and when we finally narrowed it down five, we could barely even find a way to rank them, because any of them would have been a worthy choice for No. 1. Heck,… More »

M83 – “I Need You”

The people in charge of putting together the soundtrack to Divergent, the forthcoming sci-fi young-adult blockbuster adaptation, have kept things ostentatiously of-the-moment. Various songs on the Divergent soundtrack album pair up Kendrick Lamar with Tame Impala, or A$AP Rocky with Gesaffelstein. But the first song we've heard from the soundtrack is a pretty spectacular… More »

White Sea – “Prague”

M83 isn't exactly an Anthony Gonzalez solo project; for the last two M83 albums, singer and keyboardist Morgan Kibby has played an important role, and she more or less stole the show every night when the group was touring behind Saturdays=Youth. Kibby also has her own project called White Sea, and she'll soon release her… More »

M83 – “Ali & Matthias

Much like he did for Oblivion earlier this year, Anthony Gonzalez will be doing the score for the film You And The Night. The film is written and directed by his brother Yann Gonzalez.

The Killers – “Shot At The Night” Video

Later this fall, the Killers will drop their best-of collection Direct Hits, and it includes the gleaming new M83-produced single "Shot At The Night," which now has an appropriately starry video of its own.

The Killers – “Shot At The Night” (Prod. M83)

The two bands have already toured together, and now the Killers and M83, two of our finest purveyors of grandly ridiculous blown-out new-wave, have made a song together. The Killers, a band who have always had one hell of a greatest-hits album in them, are now ready to release one. It's called Direct Hits, and… More »

M83 – “Claudia Lewis” Video (Feat. Lily Collins)

Lily Collins stars in M83's video for "Claudia Lewis" from 2011's Hurry Up, We're Dreaming. The clip, directed by The Help actress Bryce Dallas Howard, is the perfect visual representation of Anthony Gonzalez and co.'s interplanetary-meets-'80s teen flick ephemera sound, featuring an Collins as an otherworldly girl navigating a high school crush.

Big K.R.I.T. – “Multi” Video

Big K.R.I.T.'s very good recent mixtape King Remembered In Time ends with "Multi," a swelling struggle-rap built from an M83 sample. And today, that track gets a video, an artfully assembled year-in-the-life montage from director Steve-Ography. The clip follows K.R.I.T. through bus trips, studio sessions, live shows, video shoots, and photo ops, and… More »

M83 – “Oblivion” (Feat. Susanne Sundfør)

The new post-apocalyptic sci-fi movie Oblivion, with Tom Cruise, looks like it could actually be pretty great, and one of the reasons is a whole bunch of new original music from M83, whose Anthony Gonzalez also composed the score alongside the arranger and Daft Punk Tron: Legacy collaborator Joseph Trapanese.

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

For about five minutes near the beginning of the week, I was thinking that I'd limit this week's list to Christmas-themed videos, but then the only Christmas-themed videos I saw all week were the Killers clip below and this ridiculous Dropkick Murphys thing. It's just as well, really, since some truly captivating videos did… More »
