Discogs has this grouped in the “shoegaze” genre.  I’ve heard the term used ad nauseum but never knew what it was; just assumed it was as lame as the label sounded.  I still don’t know what shoegaze means but I really like this M83 record. It sounds like ethereal dreamtronica of some grand variation, a well crafted entry which somehow just sounds like it belongs in the same stacks that house my Massive Attack or Air lps.  So, is this shoegaze or no?  Doesn’t matter in the end, does it?  Drop the needle and listen, enjoy the ride.P.S. Lots of this sounds like it would fit perfectly in some kind of TV ad.  Has M83 ever been used in ad placement?
