Since it's chilly outside: Arcade Fire

Damn it's cold. This morning I was greeted with ice caps on my toes and a -12 on the thermometer. Not the coziest things to start your Friday morning off. Since it is cold, we need some fire. Arcade Fire. Was that a good transition? Perhaps not, but I'll take it and run with it anyway.

I've had this band sitting in my itunes library for the longest time before I actually decided to give them a proper listen. As I recall, I was at a friend of mine's house (that sounds weird) stealing a handful of albums off of his willing hard drive. Many of the artists, I had only heard good things about, so naturally they were drafted to join my army, my 'brothers of band' so to speak. Or write.

About two months ago, I decided that it was time I gave them (Arcade Fire) a fair trial. The first song I fell in love with, and listened to it several times every day. The whole CD (Funeral, not Neon Bible) grew on me right away and is now one of my favorites. Especially after watching their live performances, which are very entertaining. But you know what? You don't have to take my word for it, you can see for yourself because I am a nice enough person to drive all the way out to youtube and come back with some juicy videos. The work's done for you, so their is no excuse not to watch at least the first minute of these videos.

Happy Friday everyone.

I have a song of theirs in my iTunes and recently started listening to them and really enjoyed them.
