The Arcade Fire's Sophomore effort

Check out arcadefire.net for the latest band updates.

Boy, I can't wait for the next album. Funeral was by far my favorite album of 2004, and it still astounds me that it was only a Debut. That Arcade Fire is the most promicing new band I've heard in years, and I'm almost as excited about their next album as I am about the next U2 album...almost.

But anyway, the album seems to be coming along nicely, and the band is very excited about trying new instruments and attaining a "classic" sound. In one update they talk about figuring out how to make the drums sound like the drums in Come Together. The most exciting thing in the updates is the enthusiasm over a massive cathedral-sized organ the band has been recording.

Damn, this thing's going to be epic. I'm shaking with joy. Who's with me!?

I'm definitely looking forward to this one. Hope it's not a sophomore slump, but I don't think it will be. Cathedral-sized organs?! Count me in! Is there a release date set? It's got to be sometime soon at any rate...

So am I! I'm always afraid of the albums that follow a classic one but from what they are saying it should be good. It's amazing to see a band making such epic music and still be sort of under the radar. I agree one of the more promising groups of last decade.

I've been keeping up with this one for some time now. I can't imagine how it could be anything less than great. Supposedly the organ made Win cry.

I really hope "Intervention" is on the album. The radio session version of that song is nothing short of magnificent.

Oh my, Intervention is wonderful. I just listened to that song again on my drive home from work tonight.

I read about this some days ago, according with what I read the string section is done because Owen Pallet is on his European tour really soon with Final Fantasy

I can't wait for this, every time I listen to Funeral amazes me more and more

I haven't heard "Intervetion"

I'm shaking with joy too, Lancemc. I just recently got into this band myself. Incredible.

I can't wait to hear the drums they are talking about, but I HATE the organ.

Let's see if they can redeem it for me!

I'm looking forward to it. It's also a self-produced album, so it'll be interesting to see how that turns out . But I'm sure they'll come up with some really unique material as usual.

Did someone say Intervention?

I was not too impressed with their contribution to the Six Feet Under soundtrack (Cold Wind), but if their new material will be on par with Intervention... it should be pretty good.

Okay, so that has never happened before. YSI, please don't turn into ! Tried a few times but it wouldn't let me download. I'll try again later. Thanks for the link, though, I'm really looking forward to this!

I thought Cold Wind was quite nice, just lacking a little oomph.

EDIT: haha, it took the name out. Good ol' Interference word filters.

hmm... I tried the ysi link with the words and spacing corrected. It seemed to work for me. If the problem persists, let me know, and I will post Intervention again or send it by email to whoever wants it.

Agreed about Cold Wind. I enjoyed the refrain, but the rest of the song was too much of a listless foil (for this guy).

Strange, I'm still getting the error message. I tried clearing the cache and a few other things in case the problem was on my end, but no results. Looks like YSI is clogged! But thanks for the email offer, I'm promenade[at]flickerandfade.org. Really interested in hearing this.

Am I the only one who hears a lot of "New Slang" in Intervention?
