I quite liked Cold Wind to be perfectly honest. It's not a huge song, but it wasn't meant to be either. Sounds like a refined version of something they might have written for their EP.

Oh well, I just listened to Funeral again. that album really takes you on a journey. I must say too, the last three songs on that album are fricken unstoppable.

Haiti is simply gorgeous. Regine's voice is haunting as usual, but it's not morose. Love it.

Then Rebellion kicks in thunderously, with what turned into my favorite song of 2004. the lyrics are bizarre yet familiar. The track never stops, a true anthem if I've ever heard one.

Sleeping is giving in, no matter what the time is.
Sleeping is giving in, so lift those heavy eyelids.
People say that you'll die, faster than without water.
But we know it's just a lie. Scare your son, scare your daughter.
People say that your dreams are the only things that save you.
Come on baby in our dreams, we can live our misbehavior.

Then we have In the Backseat. This song sounds like it's been around for hundreds of years. It's a romantic piece of art. Her voice here is extremely fragile, yet when the song hits it's climax, her voice is a solid as stone. Also the most forboding song on the album, it closes an album that could have been a photo album of their lives.

My family tree's
losing all its leaves,
crashing towards the driver's seat,
the lightning bolt made enough heat
to melt the street beneath your feet.

Alice died
in the night,
I've been learning to drive.
My whole life,
I've been learning.

came across this tonite:

From Rolling Stone website:

Pick of the Day: Arcade Fire ” Age of Consent”

Is there anything this band can’t do well? It seems likely the Arcade Fire’s cover of New Order’s classic “Age of Consent” came from the band’s set at last year’s Vegoose festival. Wherever it originated, we bless the kind soul who decided to post it cuz now we have our delightful Monday, “play it till your coworkers threaten to behead you” song, which is so very important you see. Yay and stuff!


don't think this was posted before (if so, forgive me).

Enjoy!

Here you go:

A couple of others I'm all over...No Cars Go, which could very well be the best Arcade Fire song that you've never heard. It's from their debut EP.

"...between the click of the light and the start of a dream."

http://www.you sendit.com/transfer.php?action=download&ufid=FE9205AF46FBC64F

...And, a cover of Yeah Yeah Yeahs' Maps. (Yeah Yeah Yeahs are a rock band from New York City.) Yeah!

Well, in related news, word is that they've actually rerecorded No Cars Go in the current recording session. They've also rerecorded the demo Surf City Eastern Block, and have definitely recorded Intervention. It's not clear whether all of these will be on the album (I for one don't see how they could improve on the EP version of No Cars Go), but it seems that they've all been at the very least recorded.

The greatest indie-but-not-really-since-they're-wellknown-but-not-that-much band everrrr.

I can't wait until their new album, and for the record, No Cars Go = 678 shades of amazing.

Thanks a lot for that, but would it be possible for someone to post a new link for Intervention? The first one has expired.
