M83 @ Virgin Mobile Free Fest ’12 (C. Rotolo)

There is no extensive concept to M83’s latest musical picture show, but a creative stew of ideas strung together, combining the tangibility of scientific thought and mechanical creations with the surrealism of a banana colored blazer-sporting youth well versed in the arts of conducting a forestial orchestra while leading a parade of plastic animal play things.

The sporadic alteration of setting and illogical actions pairs well with the French outfit’s lush soundscape of layered synth backbeats, experimental fret-work, and distorted vocal harmonies, acting as the finest of wines to this plate of musical elegance.
