M83

Big shit poppin': L.A.-based Frenchman Anthony Gonzalez follows up Thursday's House of Blues show with another Houston show October 10 at the much bigger Bayou Music Center. (So if you didn't get your tickets early...) And that's after the numerous 2011 year-end honors bestowed upon Hurry Up, We're Dreaming, Gonzalez's latest album under the M83 moniker, as well as its semi-hit single, "Midnight City." (At press time, the song's official video had racked up almost 10 million views on YouTube.) That kind of renown could spell trouble for many of the hermetic chillwave dudes who've sprung up in M83's wake; lots of this new synth stuff seems dependent upon its maker's latent inferiority complex. Gonzalez, though, pursues an openly ambitious sound that probably will improve the closer he gets to stardom. Bring it on, bébé.
