From the 80's yesterday straight back to the...80's? It's never the wrong time for a sax solo, and so electronic artist M83 (aka Anthony Gonzalez) treads new/old ground by ripping one straight out of Miami Vice to close out this track. But you know what? It works. This track, despite all it's new fangled buzzing and tweaking, takes me back to the time of DX-7's and Human League dominance. And that's a very VERY good thing.
M83's new DOUBLE ALBUM Hurry Up, We're Dreaming, comes out in the Fall (October 18), so you just gonna have to wait a while for that, but "Midnight City" should be enough fun to hold you over in the meantime. If you'd like to have this track as your very own, head on over to M83's site where they are offering a free download in exchange for a wee email. Fair trade I'd say.
Also, don't forget that M83 will be appearing at DC's very own Black Cat on October 28th, so get your tickets NOW!
