M83, aka Anthony Gonzalez releases new full-length album 'Junk' on Naive. Following the critically acclaimed silver album 'Hurry Up, We're Dreaming', featuring Grammy nominated single 'Midnight City,' and two triumphant years of world touring, Gonzalez - who serves as M83's musical architect, songwriter, front man and primary vocalist - returns with an artistic evolution, explaining, "I want to show different sides of me on this album.åÊ I want to come back with something more intimate, yet somehow with...less me!" Feeling a renewed kinship with Gonzalez's early musical inspirations like Tangerine Dream, Aphex Twin, and genre-expanding visionaries like Brian Wilson and Kevin Shields, Gonzalez both returns to his roots with this album, yet makes a logical leap forward. And while M83 albums has always combined genres in a nostalgic and provocative way - from shoegaze and ambient to synth-pop and '90s alt-rock - for 'Junk', Gonzalez experiments adventurously with sounds and styles he's never previously attempted in his music. "All my albums have layers of eclecticism to them, but with this album I wanted to take that even further," he says.
Album opener, 'Do It, Try It,' features a fractured and catchy melange of old school house music, pianos, synthesized vocals, prog excess and pop art bubblegum hooks.
