M83 Dead Cities, Red Seas & Lost Ghosts Limited Vinyl LP

Overview:
Dead Cities, Red Seas, and Lost Ghosts was M83’s second release, and first to be released in the US, on Mute. Originally released in 2003 in Europe, Mute released the album in 2004 in North America to critical acclaim. Included in Pitchfork’s Top 200 Albums of the 2000s, Dead Seas was noted for what Filter Magazine called an “organic component that coexists along with the machines, giving them a warmth few acts have been able to unearth.” This was the last album featuring Nicolas Fromageau.

Four years on from the Grammy nominated, critically acclaimed release Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming (featuring platinum selling single “Midnight City”), French electronic act M83 re-issues their first three albums in addition to two digital EPs featuring remixes and B-sides from those albums. After several years of being out of print, M83 (2001), Dead Cities, Red Seas, and Lost Ghosts (2004), and Before the Dawn Heals Us (2005) will be released August 25th, 2014 on Naïve Records.

M83 has become a household name amongst music lovers due to extensive success across many formats. Since Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming, not only has M83’s Anthony Gonzalez scored two films: Oblivion (featuring Tom Cruise) and You and the Night (directed by his brother Yann Gonzalez), but his music has been used across a plethora of movies, television shows and commercials, most recently in films The Fault In Our Stars, The Vampire Diaries, and 22 Jump Street. Huffington Post even reported, “few recent albums have had a bigger impact on movie music than M83’s Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming.” At radio, M83 reached #1 on the CMJ charts, #1 at Commercial Specialty, and #5 in Commercial Alternative Radio, while receiving rave reviews from publications across the world, including Pitchfork, Spin, Entertainment Weekly, XLR8R, Filter, and countless others.

Now, after being unavailable for the past several years, fans can access M83’s organic beginnings: Dead Cities, Red Seas, and Lost Ghosts was M83’s second release, and first to be released in the US, on Mute. Originally released in 2003 in Europe, Mute released the album in 2004 in North America to critical acclaim. Included in Pitchfork’s Top 200 Albums of the 2000s, Dead Seas was noted for what Filter Magazine called an “organic component that coexists along with the machines, giving them a warmth few acts have been able to unearth.” This was the last album featuring Nicolas Fromageau.
