Label: Virgin

Sensing the height of our post-millennial nostalgia wave, Anthony Gonzalez-the mastermind behind the French electropop outfit M83-capitalized on it with an album that wouldn't sound out of place in a John Hughes film.

It was a formula he'd been building on with four previous releases, but now that '80s-inspired synth sound was fully realized. "Kim & Jessie," "Graveyard Girl," and "We Own The Sky" have appeared in a gang of commercials and movies since, all evoking that same feeling of comfort and wonder we experience when we listen to Saturdays=Youth.
