Albums of the year: #9

M83: Digital Shades

This might be considered a little eccentric of me. Digital Shades (volume one, if you must be precise) was released as a kind of collection of works in progress and was specifically flagged as ‘not the next M83 album’. Even so, I found the unfinished aspect of it part of its (considerable) charm. Many of the new shoegazy types are too concerned with being all epic and self-important, so this modest collection (in scope and scale – not necessarilly in ambition) was a breath of fresh air.
