Happy Arcade Fire Day, Everyone
Rejoice, ye lovers of absurdly grandiose indie-gone-arena-rock, for Arcade Fire's The Suburbs is out today, a full hour of anthemic chest-beating and regret-tinged nostalgia and Springsteenian grandiosity. Stream it here! Download it here for four bucks! Prepare thyself for their shows at MSG tomorrow and Thursday! (But don't get the dates wrong!) Wherein they will cover Jay Reatard and get filmed by Terry Gilliam! And if you can't make the shows, just put "We Used to Wait" on repeat and, I don't know, bang on pots and pans or something.
