M83's Teen Romance

The swelling uplifts of M83's new album Saturdays=Youth are made all the more majestic by the singular focus of the record's inspiration—being a teenager. Anthony Gonzales (a.k.a. M83) has long had his music described as "cinematic," so it's fitting that he finds so much kinship with the ecstatic firsts and everything-is-possible excitement portrayed in teen movies. Here, he waxes nostalgic about some of his favorite films in the genre, from the canon of John Hughes to the dark camp of Gregg Araki.

When Gonzalez waxes nostalgic about being a kid, did anyone else immediately connect it with MGMT's Oracular Spectacular? By the way, did anyone see M83 play at Bowery Ballroom? I found out about their show through buzzd.com If you're on there, add me as a friend (My user name is Amorous in Bauhaus Fashion)
