Cleo's Pick o' the week- M83 "We Own the Sky"

It's a well known fact that I love these guys. And it really has nothing to do with the fact that Brandon Flowers said he's totally jealous of their synths, or that they opened for The Killers on the first leg of thier North American tour earlier this year. OK, I guess it has a little to do with it, because that's how I saw them live. Not that any of my friends here will believe that - according to Gingie and Chops everything I like must hearken back to The Killers. I say they're just jealous cuz I have exquisite taste.

So there.

I'm a self confessed anglofile, but I also gotta tell ya that I love french stuff too- my aunt taught me french when I was a little girl... not that I remember any of it, but whatever. I remember listening to Celine Dion in french when she was like 13.
So nothing makes me happier (ok, very little makes me happier) than when Anthony Gonzalez says

"We own ze sky"

That's just plain sexy right there... I don't care WHO ya are.

Enjoy my pick of the week... I know I will.

This is a great song Cleo. Makes me think about hangin out during the summer with my friends in high school.

Sorry Cleo, but personally I saw M83 at the EXACT same concert you did, and quite frankly...I almost died because of them. It's like they're a techno version of a new aged Enya or someting (not cool).

I loves me some we own the sky. I have to agree with Aimers though that there concert performance was sub par. The sound system was too loud and distorted and well... don't even get me started on their stage presence. Nonetheless...Saturdays=Youth is a fabulous album. I love running to it.
