"Lower Your Eyelids to Die with the Sun" by M83 // Before the Dawn Heals Us - Deluxe Edition (Out 8.25.14 via Mute)
Next week, Mute is going to be re-releasing the first three albums from M83 for the first time available in their entirety on digital platforms. To celebrate the release, frontman Anthony Gonzalez has dug out a previously unreleased music video for the stunning closing track to Before the Dawn Heals Us, “Lower Your Eyelids to Die with the Sun”. It’s loaded with gorgeous visuals and is a firm reminder of just how impressive M83 has been since the start.
"Ruth" by Michael Cera // True That (Available Now via Bandcamp)
Last night, Michael Cera dropped a surprise album entitled True That. Yep, that Michael Cera. It’s not a total surprise, I suppose as Cera has long dabbled in music and music related projects, but this is his solo debut and it’s surprisingly solid. The 18 tracks that make up True That are generally sweet, lo-fi, bedroom pop in the vein of Coconut Records and Mimicking Birds. Still not sold/? Check out one of the album highlights, “Ruth” - a gentle acoustic number that sounds like a cool autumn evening feels.
