Meet M83 Video/Oblivion Soundtrack

I'm stoked on M83 again lately - the novel I'm working on is laregely inspired by their Saturdays=Youth record and since hearing that album I've pretty much been in love with their music (you can read about my religious experience at their live show last November here). Then this mornning I see on Pitchfork that the new Tom Cruise movie Oblivion has original music by M83 and a score composed by Anthony Gonzalez and Joseph Trapanese. Nice! Even though I'll probably never see the movie (I'm not against Cruise out-of-hand, I actually like quite a few of the movies I've seen him in and think he's a pretty damn good actor) I'm always up for new M83. Anyway, I went to M83's website and found a few things I'd not seen before, like the video posted above. And although it's locked from being embedded, if you follow the link to Back Lot Music's Soundcloud page here you can hear the first track from the aforementioned Oblivion soundtrack (or go here and hear it and read about it on Pitchfork)
