    Who the fuck are Arcade Fire?

    New video for Sprawl II was released today. Just like We Used To Wait, it's interactive. I really like this new version of the song laid over the Interactive video. I'd really like to see it released officially.

    Love the title of this thread. I love the video, mainly because Regiene is so adorable.

    A band.

    Suburbs and Neon Bible are their best to me. I also loved the Live EP they did with David Bowie.

    Yeah Suburbs is not only their best album in my opinion, but one of the best albums of the past decade. Everyone always clings to Funeral, and as amazing as that album is, Suburbs just completely trumps it in terms of songwriting, pacing, everything. It's a flawless album, and I never get bored with it. Also, it spurred the WTFIAF meme, and that alone is worth price of admission.

    I really think all the albums are equally great and have a defining theme between them that explains society in a sense.

    For me, nothing they do will ever be as good as "Funeral." Because that's fucking awesome. And sad.

    Didn't he come out and say he was misquoted a bit? I feel like I remember him kinda stepping back a bit and saying that they weren't actually that bad. I remember Win being really hurt that Wayne said that because he thought it was unjust and he really liked The Flaming Lips.

    According to this interview he said: "They're Pricks", so fuck em", he reckons that they have good tunes but he hates the way they treat their crew and their audience:

    http://www.pitchfork.com/news/34765-...ks-so-fuck-em/

    And then Win responded saying: "I still like the clouds taste metallic"

    http://www.pitchfork.com/news/34771-...e-coynes-diss/

    Its true that Win was hurt by Wayne's comment, i love both bands and i would have loved to see them tour together , now it seems it's not going to happen anytime soon, who knows what happened? maybe a misunderstanding?, maybe Wayne was angry when he said that?

    I've seen Arcade Fire live 4 times now and honestly they've been extremely nice to the audience every single time. Wayne Coyne is one of my favorite people ever, but I can't accept his claims.

    I don't know why but I am so fucking addicted to Ready To Start at the moment. It's clogging up my last.fm feed and filling my speakers from every outlet on repeat. Song of the week for me, that's for sure.

    You should really check out the Damian Taylor remix then. It's even better than the album version, in my opinion.

    To be honest I think I have it as I downloaded it from somewhere not too long ago. I'll have to look.

    Yeah but from what it sounds like, it's just gonna be in the single or something. They're very vauge about it, just "new music." Plus the 9th is a Monday, and albums always come out on Tuesdays. That tells me that we wont see the full length until atleast November or something. If the album does come out September 9th though, then we should be getting a single any day now. Unless they pull a Yeezus...

    Single or album, either way I'm fine. It means we get a new album. I really miss spending stacks of money on these guys.

    It better come out this year! It feels weird having a new album from The National without an album from Arcade Fire to go along with it.

    These guys should just tour together all the time. I'm excited, James Murphy is on board, Win's a dad now, this could very well be the best year in music in years.
