If you ever find yourself a stop beyond the one that takes you home because you fell asleep on the train at 4am and instead of waiting an hour for another train in the other direction you decide to walk the 10 blocks in the pouring rain hoping you don't get hit by a truck, M83's Saturdays=Youth is probably about as good an album as you can find for that particular circumstance. Not that it's ever happened to us. A while back M83's label held a contest to create a video for "We Own the Sky" and it seems this is the winner, created by director David Altobelli, motion designer Dan Norton and VFXer Matt Divito. As an added bonus, download this slightly more upbeat remix of the song by Mute Records' moody Maps.
