I had a feeling that I got both of those right.
Yeah, I'd say they're my favorite band ever. I've had a couple phases where I liked Tool better. It's between those two for sure.
Yeah zeni, you're a really bad person.
Let's bring this back on topic:
Two AF instrumental covers I made about a year or so ago. One's pretty poor quality; I'd like to redo it.
Animal Collective is so epic.
Before kitt kat replies to Backwater with one of her 8 page rants (no offense kat)...
Opinion - a personal belief or judgment that is not founded on proof or certainty.
Now now now Backwater, we all know you have one of the above and so does kitt kat... This is an Arcade Fire thread, please let's stay on topic.
In all fairness, the amount of bile that must be spewed forth in this thread is going to have to be mighty excessive if it hopes to counter the overbearing pleasantness cast over it by the title.
I fucking OOZE joy and rainbows and puppy dogs and sunshine. I don't know what the hell you're trying to imply.
Patrick's sores weep world peace and general affluence. Once I lanced one of his boils and my hovel turned into a penthouse.
And if you would have kicked me in the groin like I told you to, you wouldn't still be dealing with that termite problem. Always a perfect lady.
LMAO at Hannah and Patrick's remarkable sore-based housing solutions.
Best example of the actual sound of the thing in a song is here:
I had a dream last night that Arcade Fire played a show here in Florida (fat chance!). MissingPerson flew out for it and had an extra ticket and invited me to the show!! I woke up before we even made it to the show but I was excited (in the dream)

That's how good they are, they're like... the Chuck Norris of multi-instrumental collectives.
Less denim and beard though.

very cool, thanks MP.
Hang on, actually this blog right here:
has most of it.
Just be aware that a lot of those songs were by Arcade Fire 1.0, so it's a very different band and a very different sound. Kind of alt-countryish, a bit more lo-fi, a lot messier. Win and Régine are pretty much the only constant, and they weren't always doing vocals.
Calexico's cover of Ocean of Noise is damn near better than the original too, I must say.
Contributing a track as part of the Red Hot Organization AIDS charity compilation, due in February.
Pretty monumental list of artists there, too.
the notion of Sufjan Stevens collaborating with Buck 65 is too weird to contemplate.
To be honest, there's so much about Sufjan Stevens that doesn't quite square for me already, I dunno where to begin adding him up...
EDIT: The track is to be called Lenin, presumably a newer version of an older track called When Lenin Was Little, never recorded, nobody's heard it.
