Oblivion soundtrack by M83Apr 11 2013

Oh hello, what's this? M83 did the soundtrack to Oblivion, the new sci-fi movie where Tom Cruise plays Wall-E? That will do quite nicely. Here it is on iTunes, Amazon, or Rdio.

M83 vocal auditionNov 07 2011

If you like M83 and have listened to their new album, Hurry Up, We're Dreaming, you'll probably love this M83 backup singer audition video.

I literally LOL'd when he started singing. (via stellar)

I'm really enjoying M83's new album,Apr 16 2008

I'm really enjoying M83's new album, Saturdays = Youth; it's somehow both 80s retro and not. The AV Club gave the album an A and Metacritic gives it a rating of 69.

Two unrelated things:

- amazon.com/mp3 is a quick way to get to the Amazon MP3 store.

- The vast majority of the recent album releases rated by Metacritic are in the "generally favorable reviews" category. A few are rated "universal acclaim" or "mixed or average reviews" and only one is "generally negative". Compare that to the ratings for recently released movies, which are much lower on average. Do people demand higher quality from their music than movies? Or is so much music produced (compared to movies) that the only albums worth compiling reviews for are the good ones?
