    Arcade Fire. The first year they played. It was an experience I will carry with me forever. Un-fucking-real. I can't even begin to explain how awesome of a time I had there.

    Digitalism are the truth. They have a new album coming out soon (hopefully).

    The amount of massively popular bands/artists that posters here are saying they hadn't heard of until they played is actually kind of astonishing. I mean, Girl Talk? Kraftwerk? Bjork?! Time to get out from under your rocks, guys.

    Arcade Fire no doubt. i Had read a couple of things about them but never really listened or cared to. Then came the flyer for 2005 Coachella, so i downloaded a couple of songs from Funeral to check it out. "Laika" was so bitchin' and powerful with it's pounding drums, the frenetic yelling, the instrumentation, so I downloaded the whole thing; Times were kind of fucked up for me then and on top i was doing tons of E and prescription drugs, and took acid on a regular basis, aside from smoking my brains off with pot and heavy partying a la Coke, so listening to that, Specially to the whole neighbourhood songs, was connecting to something, i fallowed the story and saw that town covered in snow were people was ok with being buried and forgoten, I knew exactly what it ment and it made my heart pee its pants! It was as if they tailored that record to this alternate situation that i was going thru. I'm even tattooing my right leg with the hand and feather from the cd, It means so much to me. Then came Neon Bible and it was good, but it was no Funeral...that or i dont do drugs anymore..that often. Anyway, so yeah, come to think of it i never would have listened to arcade if they wouldnt have played Coachella 2005, tcha!

    I cannot recommend Man Man often- or enthusiastically- enough.

    I've listened to the album less times than I can count on my fingers, but they're ridiculous live.
