Raise your hand if you’ve heard Neon Bible yet. What do you think? I’ve listened to it twice, and I definitely like it. Not as much as Funeral, but then it took me several listens to fall in love with that album, too. Arcade Fire music isn’t easy for me to digest–it takes a while. One thing it ain’t is simple.
And the live shows have begun. Here’s one from earlier this month, in Montreal. (Feb. 8, 2007). It’s an audience tape and I don’t have the whole thing, but I thought you’d like to hear the cuts I found.
black mirror-Arcade Fire (live)
Keep the car running-arcade Fire (live)
Poupee de cire, poupee de son (s. gainsbourg cover)-Arcade Fire
