M83′s New album ” Hurry up we’re Dreaming”.


ep.ic ( Ep-iK ) – Noting or pertaining to a long poetic composition, usually centered upon a hero, in which a series of great achievements or events is narrated in elevated style.

Just as Homer’s Iliad is an epic poem, M83′s new double album “Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming” is an epic musical creation.

The album just dropped TODAY, October 18th, 2011 and I felt compelled to share just how amazing it really is. French musician Anthony Gonzalez has created something profound. He takes his audience on a musical journey far-far-away and absolutely nails it from start to finish. A first listen definitely requires headphones and some free-time to zone out into a pleasant dreamlike fantasy land of distant tropical islands and tall fluorescent peaks. ( at least that’s what I envisioned, with maybe a unicorn or two:0)

You may have heard M83′s  December 2008 single, “We Own the Sky” when it gained traction after being used as the intro  for  last year’s “That’s It, That’s all”  film.  You may also recognize a few of his newest cuts from “Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming” that seem as if they were scored specifically for BrainFarm’s latest masterpiece, “Art of Flight”.

Although labeled electronic, it would be a shame to see this album categorized into anything other than the “Timeless” section of your favorite local record store… let’s just hope it doesn’t get played-out! Remember MGMT? haha.

I’m not gonna be specific with which songs are better than others. Although some stand out above the rest, this album is one that must be played on repeat from start to finish. It ‘d be a shame to read only half of an epic masterpiece such as Homer’s Iliad, so don’t ruin it by  buying only the most popular shit. Do yourself a favor and purchase the whole story.
