Well, well. Long time without posting. This is due to my travel to my loved Paraná, because the marriage of one of my best friends.
Right there, while I was dancing with a friend, she recommended me this band. “Arcade Fire”? Never heard about it, I said.
So, I promised her, first thing I’d do when I got back to Cordoba was to listen something about them.
Arcade Fire is an indie rock band based in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Its members are Win Butler, Régine Chassagne, Richard Reed Parry, William Butler, Tim Kingsbury, Sarah Neufeld, and Jeremy Gara.
Their first full-length album, Funeral, debuted in September 2004 in the USA and in February 2005 in the UK, and was very highly acclaimed by critics. The title of the debut album was chosen because of the deaths of several relatives of band members during recording.
On December 27, 2005, Funeral was ranked #1 on MTV2’s “50 Greatest Albums of the Year” in the United Kingdom.
I’ve listened the whole album a couple of times, and boy; they are good. In one of the songs, (“Haiti”, I think) they got over 15 artists performing together! So, go get it, and enjoy!
