M83 – Graveyard Girl

It would unfair to label M83 MBV copyists because their back catalogue proves otherwise. But, taken in isolation you can’t help but think that ‘Graveyard Girl’ could amount to pretty much a perfect return to the scene for the Irish greats. As it is Kevin Shields and co. have a busy schedule in 2008 with a clutch of gigs including Electric Picnic. News on a new album has been shallower but it seems something is imminent before the end of the year. But back to more immediate matters, ‘Graveyard Girl’ sounds like M83’s first true tune, their lush soundscapes may have dazzled us in the past but for the first time Anthony Gonzalez has come up with a traditional song structure that uses real instruments. ‘Saturday’s = Youth’ is his third album since founding M83 member Nicolas Fromageau departed the scene and it should see his band profit from shoegaze’s inevitable resurrection.
