Even though it’s Thursday, the weekend still feels far away, and you might need something to power you through to the end of the week. Well, how about a full album’s worth of music by M83? Yeah, we thought that might help.
M83’s complete soundtrack for “Oblivion” has arrived for your earbuds, and yes, it sounds pretty damn great. But for those of you hoping for a Tom Cruise movie powered by Anthony Gonzalez‘s astounding rack of synths that push to the sky, things are slightly different. The title track, “StarWaves,” and “I’m Sending You Away” aside, this is very much a movie score (aided by Joseph Trapanese), and Gonzalez seems to have fit inside this world pretty nicely for what is his first major studio gig.
