Thursday's Jam: M83

This post is from our friend Samantha Feld, Director of Music Programming for Filter Magazine.

I’ve always been a fan of the French electronic/dream pop group, M83. While blasting KCRW on my morning drive to work, a particularly epic and moving song caught my attention; turns out, it was new single from M83 titled “Midnight City” from their upcoming release Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming. Each album has been more dramatic and powerful than the next, and there's no doubt that the just announced double-album will continue that trend.
