Jean-michel Jarre M83

A legend in electronic music, Jean-michel Jarre is returning with a new album and has teamed up with fellow France-dweller Anthony Gonzalez from the band M83 in a brand new track entitled 'Glory' - a soaring anthem recorded for a recently released short film.

Jean-Michel Jarre's 'Glory' is an atmospheric crescendo of a track featuring gorgeous ambient vocals courtesy of Gonzalez, buzzing synths and heavy percussion. It melts together so wonderfully, you could almost describe it as a match made in musical heaven; Jarre's and Gonzalez's similar sensibilities proved exceedingly helpful. 'The demo was really strong right away', said the latter. 'It was very melodic, we both think that melody is the most important thing in music.'

Biting His Nails? Frank Ocean Admits to Being Very Nervous Ahead of Grammy Awards


Grammy Awards Frank Ocean M83 Elton John Ed Sheeran Justin Timberlake

Frank Ocean appeared at the pre-Grammy party in Los Angeles on Friday, where he admitted to being incredibly nervous about the coming awards themselves, Billboard reports.

Performing a 6 song set at the Ace Museum in Los Angeles, Frank Ocean told the audience: "So it's officially Grammy weekend, which is probably not a big deal for everyone... But it makes me nervous as f**k." With 6 nominations including for Album of the Year, Record of the Year and Best New Artist Ocean's got nothing to be nervous about. Especially with Channel Orange being such a strong contender. 

Esteemed guests to the show included Busy Phillipps, Alan Cummings, Ashley Benson and Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda, and were all equal to the average joes in the audience, as they were treated to renditions of  "Crack Rock," "Monks", "American Wedding", "Sierra Leone," "Thinkin' Bout You," and "Pyramids."

A Week In Music featuring: M83, The Rolling Stones, Fun., Justin Bieber and much more

A Week In Reviews... It's hard to believe that's it's been well over a year since M83 released their single 'Midnight City' and signalled their long-awaited move up to alternative music's big leagues. Going gold in America on sales, and featuring heavily on hit UK TV shot Made In Chelsea, the song precluded album Hurry Up We're Dreaming reaching the US album charts top 20. Our reviewer found that, with 2012 now drawing to a close, the French group's party was very much still in full swing. "'Midnight City', as expected, gets the biggest cheer of the night before an epic version of 'Couleurs' brings the set to a close, and if your mind wasn't already blown, this unbelievable wall of noise was the final knockout blow" he wrote in gushing praise.


Away from the live arena and back to the studio, former Mercury nominees The Unthanks doled out another uncompromising slab of their ethereal folk. The Unthanks Diversions Vol. 3Songs From The Shipyards is the group's third release within a year, and was initially a soundtrack to a film documenting their local North East England's shipbuilding industry history. Andrew Lockwood took this one on, and found a band in the form of their life seven albums into their career: "The album, as you might expect, is full of character and love" he wrote. "The songs are performed with great care and attention and each note stirs the emotions as it recounts a slice of Shipbuilding history. Regardless of whether you have seen the accompanying film this set of songs works wonderfully well and once again shows what a prodigious and prolific talent The Unthanks are."

A Week In Interviews... We managed to grab a chat with stalwart Canadian pop-punkers Billy Talent, a group still fizzing with energy with their 20th anniversary of existence just round the corner in 2013. David Straw chatted to the band formerly known as Pezz (they changed their name after legal issues in 1999) and chatted of tours, new albums and the US general election, finding the group in bullish mood on the eve of a show in Nottingham.

M83 - Brixton Academy 8th November 2012 Live Review 2012


Deja vu: the experience of thinking that a new situation had occurred before.

M83 - Brixton Academy 8th November 2012 Live Review

Going on holiday to the same place every year has always confused me. The same hotel, the same people, the same sights and the same experience year after year. I don't know about you, but as soon as it gets to the point where I'm on first name terms with the receptionist, it's time to leave.

I suppose people like knowing what to expect, and the idea of having a 'home away from home' must be comforting. If only you could pick up your dream hotel and drop it in a different, improved, location.
