Today we give Deftones Chino Moreno the Bakers Dozen treatment, asking for his thirteen favourite albums, and finding out why he loves them


M83 - Saturdays=Youth
I've liked this band for a long time, and I think this is the best work. I love the sound, the programming he does, the synths he uses, but this record has great songs, he was able to craft these complete songs. The structures of them are really good, and the girl who sings on it, her voice is superb. The production is so big, and reminiscent of 80s music, so it is nostalgic for me, it takes me back to my youth. For just one dude to be making this it's pretty awesome. I've always been a fan of shoegaze, and when I first heard M83 I took it to my friends and said 'you've got to hear this, it's an electronic shoegaze band'.
