After weeks of hearing the single Reflektor everywhere we go, its been such a treat to finally get our hands on the new Arcade Fire album. Quite a departure from their previous offerings, we're not entirely sure how we feel about it yet as a whole. As a friend commented yesterday, "it's a grower." But no matter where you stand on the album, there no denying that this trippy extended concert-video from director Roman Coppola is up there in "coolest shit ever" territory. Shot in Montreal (soooo Montreal) and featuring just about everybody awesome EVER (Michael Cera!) it's a good reminder of why Arcade Fire are totally deserving of their countless accolades, and their place among the top bands in the world right now.
But seriously, you had us at Michael Cera.
