There’s undoubtedly something a little weird about seeing rock music in a strangely lit, tackily carpeted convention center ballroom, but by day three of the music portion of SXSW, there are a few advantages to the Radio Day Stage in the Austin Convention Center: namely, air conditioning, free water, comfy seating, $7 pizza (not too bad by SXSW standards), and plenty of outlets to huddle around with a gaggle of battery-depleted compatriots. Not to mention the stellar lineup that radio stations like KCRW have assembled for their showcases. Yesterday alone featured Lost in the Trees, NO, Real Estate, and Dum Dum Girls.

M83, “Midnight City.” The first glimpse into what Anthony Gonzalez describes as his most “epic” album to date paints a clear portrait of an artist re-engergized and at the height of his creative capabilities. Bursting out of the gate with sharply serrated vocals backed by a heavy, assertive synth beat, “Midnight City” initiates with a resounding jumpstart and never hits the breaks from there. The song is a tightly knit sonic roller coaster, sparing no expense in exhibiting Gonzalez’s understanding of what amounts to musical magnificence. “Kim & Jessie” this is not; there’s scarce emotional substance at play lyrically, yet the overall vibe of the track absolutely glistens with the sheen of pure, wild elation.
