While I’m a fan of Saturdays=Youth, I’m not as familiar with the M83‘s earlier albums so I was taken a bit by surprise when their live show was more of a dance rave than the 80′s-inspired guitar-heavy shoegaze of which I was accustomed. Although this made the brilliance of songs like “Graveyard Girl” and “Kim & Jessie” lose something in translation, their prior work which consisted of more club-friendly dance tracks, sounded fantastic and it was obvious that the crowd was enamored the party-feel of the set. If anything, the performance made me want to pick up some early M83 albums. Any suggestions where to start?
