https://store.mute.com/browse/m83/products/m83-dsvii Pink Galaxy vinyl up for preorder. "Mute will release M83’s Digital Shades Vol. 2 on September 20, 2019. It will be available in limited edition pink galaxy color double vinyl, CD, and digital formats. Anthony Gonzalez (M83) spoke with his brother and creative partner Yann Gonzalez about the record, saying the below: At first there was this vivid memory of Dungeons and Dragons, this childhood sensation of living in an imaginary world set in a faraway past or a lost future. I wanted to create some music that could be part of this adventure and journey with all of its solitary knights, dreamy landscapes, strange animals, forgotten myths and old spells. Originally, the Digital Shades project was supposed to be much more intimate – a collection of B-sides and unused tracks destined for the hardcore fan base. Digital Shades was the name chosen to dissociate it from a proper studio album, although it would be fully part of M83’s discography. Digital Shades became an excuse to give a second life to some tracks instead of letting them disappear into the void. I wanted to create a production of ambient music that could evolve throughout the years. With Vol. 2, I wanted to come back with something stronger that featured the depth of a proper studio album without the pressure of providing pop music – faraway from Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming and Junk. The inspiration behind this record is mainly video game music. It felt so refreshing to play all of these old school games again. I wanted to be surrounded by nature and the past. I would only feed myself with older art. It’s almost as if I couldn’t stand living in the present. This is probably why it was important for me to only use analog equipment for this record. We recorded everything with vintage equipment in my studio and at Justin Meldal-Johnsen’s studio in Glendale, California during final production." From email newsletter: "Today M83 announces DSVII. Arriving more than 12 years after the first installment, the album will be released on September 20th. When I work on a record, I have difficulty saying goodbye to some pieces of music that I think have potential but don’t necessarily fit the style of the album. This is how Digital Shades became an excuse to give a second life to some tracks instead of letting them disappear into the void. With DSVII, I wanted to come back with something stronger that featured the depth of a proper studio album without the pressure of providing pop music – faraway from Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming and Junk.

Thought there'd be a thread for this already but since there isnt... Arca's debut LP is up for pre-order. Unfortunately the limited version isn't very cheap when you include shipping to the U.S. but it is limited to 500 copies, hand-numbered, with a bonus 10" and sealed together in a black PVC bag. There is also a regular 12" version. Both can be purchased here. Arca has produced songs for and with Kanye West, FKA Twigs and the upcoming Bjork album. Here's a track off the album:
I'm selling my MM S/T Vinyl, trying to do it quickly as I'm going back to Europe. I've been getting rid of things the more I cut ties with possessions in the US. I'll admit, it took a bit of thinking it over, to list it, it sounds amazing on vinyl (especially 'Stall Out'), but I am. And I know people will say I'm asking too much, but hey, no one is forcing anyone to make rash decisions
