You Can Still Embed M83

Above is Anthony Gonzalez, the sole member making up French synth/shoegaze act M83 these days. He's pretty boff-tastic, no?

Anyway, yesterday marked my return to Towleroad after taking a bit of a holiday break. Among other things in the column, I wrote about how M83 are opening for The Killers on tour this month and in February.

Congratuations are in order, too, as Towleroad was announced the winner yesterday of the Web Blog Awards category for Best LGBT Blog! Thanks everyone who voted last week!

Here's the video for M83's "Kim & Jessie," a song that made Rolling Stone's "100 Best Singles of 2008" list. (A friend of mine gifted this track to me in the fall from iTunes, and I've been playing it nonstop ever since):

P.S. Kudos to Mute Records, one of the few labels left who don't disable embedding of its artists' videos!
