Morgan Kibby has provided the vocals on the last two records by electro-synth cinemascopers M83. While that outfit favors windswept, Britpop-channeling compositions, Kibby’s music is brighter and more direct. On “Prague,” she winds her bold, potent voice over stomping synths, growing more urgent and forceful as the song goes on. By the end, it’s positively imposing: great walls of electronics behind Kibby’s frantic, pleading voice.
