Like all my great essays go, I have a preface and a
legitimate alibi to why this one is late. Two words: technical difficulties.
I’ve never felt more technologically incompetent this past weekend, surrounded by hundreds of
photographers and journalists who “knew what they were doing.” I’m going to
start at the very beginning.
Well, not really, but close enough. It just feels real.
And there's nothing more American than that. Happy Independence Day Eve, everyone.
One of the buzzwords that floated around this weekend’s announcement of the impending divorce of TomKat was “Oblivion.” This would be the now-regrettable title of the sci-fi movie that Tom Cruise is currently shooting in Iceland with director Joseph Kosinski. There is, however, one reason you should be extremely excited for it: M83 will be writing the score.
As long as the city remains his church, ANTHONY GONZALEZ of M83 will always have success in places like Boston. Tonight, the French electronic pop mastermind hits the House of Blues for another sold out show, a few months after Daniel Brockman caught up with him back in November, his first time in the big room.
M83's Anthony Gonzalez
This is where we'll be uploading WFNX's interviews with M83's Anthony Gonzalez, the Vaccines, and AWOLNATION, and live tracks by Casey from the Dear Hunter and Kasabian. We'll update as the audio and video rolls in.
Also: as you can see, Liz Pelly broke our brains by introducing us to Cinemagram, which we've adopted as our own now that Instagram is Facegram.
Oh hey -- another M83 post! Well, kinda. Yeah, we've already posted the Kanye mashup, hung a glowing 3.5-star review on Hurry Up, We're Dreaming, spooged neon over the music video. We're also pretty sure we got Anthony Gonzalez on the horn later this week to talk about his gig November 20 at the House of Blues.
And finally, there are appropriately magical sights to those legendary sounds. I mean, not that we didn't enjoy staring at that weird goblin creepoid featured on the artwork to M83's instant classic “Midnight City” every day on repeat since its July release.
