M83 is back! The french electronic band led by Anthony Gonzalez hits their 7th studio full length with Junk. It's been 4 years since their last studio album (2011's critically acclaimed Hurry Up, We're Dreaming), and M83 have certainly done a lot of growing and evolving with their sound. Right from the get go, Junk is a divisive shift in styles from Hurry Up - though still heavily influenced by 80's nostalgia. Inspired by throwback tv shows like Who's The Boss and Punky Brewster, Gonzalez taps into that 80''s vibe in a major way with funky synth pop, waiting room muzak, power pop ballads, even tapping legendary shredder Steve Vai for a guitar solo. Check the sound on "Do It, Try It," "Go!," "Bibi The Dog," "Moon Crystal," "Tension," "Road Blaster," "The Wizard," "Time Wind" with Beck, and more. Presented on 180 gram vinyl with download included. Embrace the change!
