from france, m83‘s fifth studio release saturdays = youth is one of those beautiful spring albums adorned with so many colorful shades of vivid watercolor images, star-catching sounds and ethreal destinations. more than easy to get yourself lost to, the entire album should be listened to on a long journey far away from home.

we own the sky

i’m gonna jump the walls and run
i wonder if they’ll miss me?
i won’t miss them.

the cemetery is my home
i want to be a part of it
invisible even to the night
then i’ll read poetry to the stones
maybe one day i could be one of them

wise and silent
waiting for someone to love me
waiting for someone to kiss me

i’m fifteen years old
and i feel its already too late to live
don’t you?

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter

    I have been listening to “We Own the Sky” over and over lately – I chose it as a “sampler” from the album a few days ago, on the name alone, and I am quite glad I did. It is a great track, really makes me feel something special. And the title reminds me of Boards of Canada’s “You Could Feel the Sky.” Anyway, bravo, great taste as always!
