M83 – Graveyard Girl (Live)

New York local tv, NY1, has a late Sunday night hour long local-market only indie version of MTV’s 120 Minutes called New York Noise. New York Noise is a surprisingly well produced program that shows equally surprisingly well produced videos of a good cross section of notable current indie bands. Ted Leo, Jens Lekman, Hold Steady, Ladybug Transistor, Baby Dayliner, Hercules And Love Affair and this band M83 among others are recent examples of featured videos. After seeing the M83 video for “Graveyard Girl” I thought I found a band that might be what would happen if The Postal Service listened to a ton of Ultra Vivid Scene, so I went to the recent M83 show at Bowery. To my disappointment, the song featured in the New York Noise video was far and away their best with the rest of their songs – replete with excessive wankery and long boring “atmospheric” instrumental interludes – veering more towards Enya than UVS. Even so, this track, “Graveyard Girl” is pretty good.
