Added DiffLines:

* LyricalDissonance: "Road Blaster" is a fun, bouncy song with a saxophone riff in place of a traditional "chorus". So it's easy to not notice that the lyrics say things like, "Evil is God and Iím going straight to Hell".

* SelfDeprecation: Naming an album ''Junk'' probably counts.



** ''Junk'' has "Bibi the Dog", most of which is spoken in French, and the latter half of "For the Kids", which is spoken in English by a young girl.

Added DiffLines:

* StylisticSuck: Appropriately for the era of music that inspired ''Junk'', the first half of the instrumental track "The Wizard" is made to sound like it's being played back on a decades-old tape that has suffered significant wear and tear over the years.

* StepUpToTheMicrophone: Anthony sings lead on comparatively few tracks on ''Junk''. Mai Lan is featured on several, while Jordan Lawlor, Susanne Sundfør, and {{Music/Beck}} all get one track each.

** The ''Midnight City'' video seems to be a shoutout to both VillageoftheDamned and ''Anime/{{Akira}}'', focusing on psychic children with glowing eyes.

Indie kids ''love'' this band. It's very easy to spot why: M83 loves to use experimental sound effects to add to the artistic quality of their albums. Lots of people who aren't indie kids also love this band for the same reasons. Much like [[Music/DaftPunk another popular French electronic group]] was chosen to score Film/TronLegacy, they were chosen by director Joseph Kosinski to score Film/{{Oblivion}}.
