[watch] M83//Reunion

To coincide with the release of M83’s Reunion EP, the official music video was released a couple of days ago. Reunion is the second single from last year’s epic Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming.  The EP features a handful of Reunion remixes from the likes of Mylo, The Naked And Famous, and Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr..


p.s. If you’re lucky enough to attend the Austin City Limits this year (Oct. 12-14), you’ll definitely want to catch M83’s set.

Favorites Albums of 2011 (So Far)

2011 is more than half-way through and in a mere seven months, a boat-load of fantastic new music has hit the airwaves (we’ve also survived yet another prophesied apocalypse…not too shabby plant earth).

Anyways, I did this last Summer and it was fun to look back and see what albums held up when “Best of” season was full effect.  So without further ado, I’m pleased to present my favorite albums of 2011 (so far) and be sure to check back in on December 15th to see if any of these picks make my Top 10.
