When M83 aka Anthony Gonzalez released Junk earlier this year, it was the French artist’s first studio album in five years, following up his massive, mainstream-sealing Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming, which culled all the juiciest angles of his electronicized pop-as-future-vision and made the album’s much-imitated “Midnight City” single seemingly inescapable. Gonzalez had done all that, he figured, and set himself fresh challenges by collaborating with the contextually unlikely likes of Beck and hard-rock guitar hero Steve Vai on tracks inspired by the classic pop iconoclasm of Brian Wilson, Todd Rundgren and Brian Eno alongside the more outré electronic texture-tinkerings of Tangerine Dream, Boards of Canada and Aphex Twin. Opening set by Brooklyn rock tweakers Yeasayer.
