new arcade fire track, sort of dark dance music, with David Bowie guest vocals there for a bit in the second half.

How is it we haven't had an Arcade Fire thread before now? :crazy:

We aren't as good at keepin up on music threads here as we were on LSP. Here it seems like the only non-genre thread that sticks is The Beatles, which was basically a carry-over from LSP

can we just work it out, scream and shout, till we work it out... till we work it out

Star
10-24-2013, 07:42 PM
like seriously. super solid track. def my fave from what i've heard so far.

Jake
10-24-2013, 07:43 PM
yea i dig it a lot i still dig Reflektor even more tho

Star
10-24-2013, 07:47 PM
i dunno i'm def more on board with afterlife. like seriously jamming hard to that

Jake
10-24-2013, 08:10 PM
yea i prefer the specificity of Reflektor's lyrics. rlly kind of sums up the paranoia and thematic concerns of the present. even stuff like "we fell in love/when i was nineteen/i was staring at a screen," you don't hear lyrics with that sort of evocation of what it's like to be growing up in the 2000s or 2010s

and Reflektor has this great sort of dark dancey build-up throughout. for me it feels like its from the same ideaspace as like...some of the more beat-y dancey Radiohead stuff from Kid A or Amnesiac



i dig Afterlife a lot too tho. "Afterlife...what an awful word." that's like, yeah. the chorus is a little broad but it still works. and the tune is good. i kind of don't want to lose the video when i'm listening to it in my car tho!

That's what they always sounded like, Precocious Spoiled Brats: The Band.

I've only really heard reflektor when they played it on Colbert the other night as a band called 'the reflektors' for some reason. it's pretty neat. ima hold off on any further listening until I can 'buy' the cd in at least v0 quality.

Star
10-25-2013, 12:25 AM
Oh, Orpheus is pretty solid too.

Star
10-25-2013, 12:28 AM

Jake
10-25-2013, 12:34 AM

Star
10-25-2013, 12:39 AM

Jake
10-25-2013, 12:55 AM
Yea I preordered it. They've been emailing me first dibs at tix for these theme party shows they've been doin as the reflektors. Cool but I need em to hit Chicago or something.

Star

Star

i love her.

also i have decided my fave part of the album is from joan of arc---afterlife

Jake
11-11-2013, 02:16 AM
same. It's Never Over (Hey Orpheus) is my #1 jam. the part where it gets quiet? and when you get older...you will discover...it's never over... and the music is all tinkly, YES, and then you get the falsetto Win/Regine Orpheus/Eurydice part there at the end, dang.

Jake

Star
11-15-2013, 12:26 AM
