    It leaked all ready? I may just wait till its release. I have Funeral and its good, but I hardly listen to it. The track on the Six Feet Under ST is really good though.

    Re: The Arcade Fire - Neon Bible

    I love the first half of the studio version of Intervention with the organ and all. It's such a powerful sound, but I really prefer a live version they did a couple years ago, more of an acoustic version with Owen Pallett playing the violin in the background. It still sends chills down my spine every time I hear it!

    Really look forward to hearing it. I loved 'Funeral', and I hear they're really wicked live.

    Same here. I think that the hype around AF was way too big, they are good band, but one of the best? I doubt. Also liked them live (only on TV unfortunatelly), that really sounded exciting, I would say much better than on the record.
    So I don't have any expectations on the new album, I'll downloaded soon and put some comments than
    Must admit that Funeral was one of the last original CD's that I've bought, before I surrendered completely to the magic of downloading and mp3's

    I've had the album before the hype, so that is not a factor as to why I have hardly given it proper time to listen. I guess I have not reached a point where I "get" the music and can really appreciate it. I did give it a spin yesterday and I really enjoyed it again. As for the new album I'll go out and buy it when it's released and have a listen. Chances are I'll wait to fully get all I can from Funeral before settling on the new album.

    Re: The Arcade Fire - Neon Bible

    Just finished listening to Neon Bible and it's amazing. It's easily going to make my best/favorite releases of 2007 list. Much more accessible then "Funeral" which is very good as well. Neon Bible is great and it has a darker feel to it,musically and lyrically. I didn't listen to the leak. I'm a sucker for packaging, so I bought the deluxe edition of the album. It comes in a box with two flip books,lyric booklet, and cd in a plastic sleeve housed in a box. Really cool. I love when artists go all out with the album artwork presentation. Amazing record! I could only imagine how the vinyl release will look.

    Re: The Arcade Fire - Neon Bible

    Neon Bible may top Funeral for me. This album feels more atmospheric, and actually darker even though Funeral was a) titled Funeral and b) pertaining to the band members' family members' deaths. Neon Bible is a great follow-up, and it might be my favorite record of the year, so far, topping the new Bloc Party and Of Montreal.

    I'm impressed.
    After the first listen I thought "not as accessible as FUNERAL", but I had to listen to it again, straight away. An album with so many layers, little surprises - dark,Yes but very satisfying to this guys ears!
    I'm going to enjoy getting to know "Neon Bible".

    Arcade Fire finally made it downunda, and I saw them last night.
    One of the best live acts I've seen.
    More significantly, it brought "Neon Bible" alive for me.
    To be honest, I never really "got it" the way I did "Funeral".
    Seeing the energy and enthusiasm of the band just brought out "Neon Bibles'" vitality.

    Watching some of the band-members antics, I thought...they must be thinking "I've got the best job in the world"
    What a great night!

    All of their work is fantastic, and I agree with you Ray; The live performances they put on, are absolutely spectacular. !
    Definitely worth seeing them live, if you're a fan! ..Actually, even if you're not, it's still awesome!

    I'm going to see them in three weeks in Tokyo - I can't wait! I've only just gotten into them, and bought the ticket when I was still a little unsure of their music (because I knew they'd be amazing live). Since then I've been listening non-stop! Funeral is amazing, every song is incredible.

    Arcade Fire

    Canadian rock band Arcade Fire's new album, "The Suburbs," is set for release on Aug. 3, the group's label Merge announced today. The album's first single, also entitled "The Suburbs" and backed with "Month of May," will be released as a 12-inch single on May 27, and fans who preorder the album will be given a digital download of the two tracks immediately.

    Arcade Fire is scheduled to perform at the Lollapalooza festival in Chicago just days after the release of "The Suburbs."

    "The Suburbs" is Arcade Fire's follow-up to "Neon Bible," which hit No. 2 on the Billboard 200 in March 2007 and has sold 421,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

    The band has been working on the album for more than six months with producer Markus Dravs, who also helmed "Neon Bible." There has been speculation that Owen Pallett, the Polaris Prize-winning creative force behind Final Fantasy, has been working on the album's arrangements. He previously arranged strings for Arcade Fire, and fueled rumors by recently cryptically posting on Twitter that he had "just completed 10 days on the best album I've ever had the pleasure of working on."

    Re: Arcade Fire

    The third Arcade Fire LP, The Suburbs, is out August 2 in the UK/Europe and August 3 in the U.S. via Merge. So far, four songs have been released into the internet wilds: "The Suburbs", "Month of May", "Ready to Start" and "We Used to Wait". But there are still 12 more songs to go, which means that there are 16 songs total on The Suburbs, easily making it Arcade Fire's most overflowing work to date (if judged solely on the number of songs involved). In other words, the tracklist is below:

    The Suburbs:

    01 The Suburbs
    02 Ready to Start
    03 Modern Man
    04 Rococo
    05 Empty Room
    06 City With No Children
    07 Half Light I
    08 Half Light II (No Celebration)
    09 Suburban War
    10 Month of May
    11 Wasted Hours
    12 Deep Blue
    13 We Used to Wait
    14 Sprawl I (Flatland)
    15 Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)
    16 The Suburbs (Continued)

    Arcade Fire's new album 'The Suburbs' to be released with eight different covers?

    Arcade Fire's forthcoming new album 'The Suburbs' could be set to be released with eight different covers.

    According to reports on MBVMusic.com, the Canadian group's third studio effort will be released with multiple cover designs.

    They go on to say that the ADA (Alternative Distribution Alliance), the people who distribute albums to retailers, have listed such information about the band's upcoming August 2 release in their sales catalogue.

    Despite such reports, neither the group's official website or record label have confirmed such allegations.

    Re: Arcade Fire



    The forthcoming Arcade Fire album, will come equipped with eight different covers. Today, Consequence of Sound has apparently uncovered all eight covers, and they're... not that different from each other.

    Each cover features the same car, the same band logo, and the same basic composition. The coloring changes, as does whatever scenery the car happens to be pointed at. But every cover depicts a pretty similar suburban tableau. You can see all eight above, or a slightly larger version over at Consequence of Sound.

    Maybe the whole thing is a commentary on how similar and interchangeable all these different suburban scenes are? Whatever the case, the album arrives August 2 in the UK/Europe and August 3 in the U.S. via Merge.

    With the release of Arcade Fire's third LP, The Suburbs, about two weeks away (August 2 in the UK/Europe and August 3 in the U.S. via Merge), the hype cycle is going into overdrive.

    First, Seattle radio station The End has 30 second snippets of every song from the record streaming on their site right now.

    Arcade Fire took Jay Reatard's snot-flinging punk scorcher "Oh It's Such a Shame" and turned it into a stadium-ready, harmony-laden anthem. This band is pretty good at stadium-ready, harmony-laden anthems.

    Perhaps they'll reprise the tribute during their Madison Square Garden webcast this Thursday? We'll see. Until then, watch a fan-filmed YouTube vid of the cover--

    I was at the show Wednesday night and it was truly one of the best nights I have ever had at a concert, in my top 5 shows of all time. The fact that I had great floor seats helped.

    I bought the CD Tuesday morning and played it non-stop for the next 2 days in preparation. Great CD btw (obsessing over track #4 "Rococo"), but thats too be expected.

    The evening started with a surprise set from violinist/vocalist Owen Pallett (Final Fantasy) who does work with Arcade Fire occasionally. He used a sampler to great effect and his voice is very pretty and haunting. But the songs were a bit too avant garde for me and while I didn't hate them, I was bored for most of his set. I thought he might just do 2 or 3 songs tops but he ended up doing around 7 or 8.

    He is awfully cute, and openly gay.


    Former MTV veejay & human music encyclopedia Matt Pinfield warmed up the audience (and plugged his New York morning radio show) next. I think he was a bit buzzed LOL.

    The night finally got into gear for me as another my favorite bands, Spoon, came out and did a blistering, but too short set. I think Pallett ate into their time. I saw them headline at Radio City only several months ago so I wasn't especially upset by their short window to play, but would have loved 2, 3 more songs ("Beast & Dragon adored" especially). Awesome brass section.

    After a fairly brief interval, AF took the stage to an enthusiasm I have rarely seen, and I have been to a lot (I'm not kidding, I mean a LOT!) of concerts. The entire crowd was on their feet from the second they took the stage and didn't sit down for the rest of the night. Indeed they were hooping, hollering, whistling, chanting, dancing, and singing along with every single song. I won't bother to go through the setlist for highlights (you can find that on other blogs) because their wasn't a clunker the entire night, the band was tight, Will and (especially) Regine were in fine voice and every song was a home run. They did a great job of mixing the new stuff from "Suburbs" with "Funeral" & "Neon Bible" and I especially loved how members switched around on instruments after almost every song (Regine played about 4 including drums). By the time they finished the night with "Wake up" they had the crowd in a frenzy, my voice was hoarse all day Thursday.

    I did almost get into a altercation with a straight couple in front of me, they kept smoking joint after joint, and by the time the wife/girlfriend started rolling up the 4th of the night I tapped the guy on the shoulder and told him that I think it was enough, their weed was especially strong and bothered me and especially a friend I was with who has allergies. I usually try to avoid confrontation, and I'm not an anti pot scold, but they were especially obnoxious with it. At first the guy started to put up a defense, but I just cut him short and told him I could call over a security guard, he started to inch toward my face but his partner put her hand on his arm and he backed down. When he turned back and faced the stage she looked at me and mouthed "sorry", so it was cool, but I swear I was about to kick some breeder butt. Otherwise, It was a fantastic night and I can't wait to see them again ASAP.

    Awww, thanks trinket and your welcome.

    I should note that I had a very nice experience at the MGMT concert I saw Tuesday night at Radio City Music Hall. About the 3rd song in I noticed that there was an older gay couple just 2 rows in front of me, they were holding hands, rubbing each others backs and put there heads on each others shoulders and kissed several times, it was so sweet and they were just soooo cute together. It really warmed my heart because I'm old enough to remember a time when such a public display of same sex affection would just never happen, but that night nobody batted an eye, It's great how far we've come.

    MGMT were great btw.

    USA Today reports, Arcade Fire will serve as musical guests on Saturday Night Live on November 13 episode. It'll be their second appearance on the show, following a pretty great 2007 showing. Scarlett Johansson, will host.

    Looking forward to seeing them perform on the Grammy Awards.

    Arcade Fire unplugged still sounds a whole lot like regular Arcade Fire, it turns out. The band is in L.A. to perform at the Grammy Awards on Sunday night, and while in town, they took the opportunity to record an acoustic session for the L.A. radio station KROQ. They played unplugged versions of the Suburbs songs "Month of May" and "Ready to Start". Watch the video below, via We All Want Someone to Shout For. It's fun to watch them all clustered in a tight circle in the studio, like they're hyping themselves up for a big game.

    Also, as the band's website points out, they'll play a special last-minute all-ages show tonight in L.A. at a secret location. And as Consequence of Sound points out, Spike Jonze's 30-minute Arcade Fire short film Scenes From the Suburbs will screen at SXSW next month. The film, a continuation of his video for their song "The Suburbs", is set to debut tomorrow at the Berlin International Film Festival.
