yeah since i don't watch the show maybe that's why i didn't like it..
Cold Wind wasn't spectacular but I thought it worked for it's intended purpose on Six Feet under.
i have to say i like the live version of Intervention a bit better.. a little more personal sounding but there's nothing bad about the new version

I like this song a lot more than "Intervention", especially the second half. It oozes of reverb. I can't wait to hear it in the context of the whole album. It definitely reminds me of being by the sea, as Win has said. Very soundscape-ish.

I am wrestling with myself over whether to download Black Wave/Bad Vibrations because I just really got into Intervention and don't want to spoil myself. It took me a little while to get Intervention . . . I'd heard the live version and hadn't loved it, but after a few days of listening to it on all sorts of different sound systems it just kind of clicked (and on awful computer speakers, too, so it must be the song that's good and not the quality). The organ is pretty badass, and the lyrics are good too . . . not Neighborhood good, but there's a lot in them. I've been singing (Hallelujah with the fear in my heart . . . ) all day.

I do love me some Arcade Fire of an evening.

If you ignore the cringworthy line, "Mirror mirror on the wall, show me where the bombs will fall." the song is great.

I think this album is going to be a lot more contextual than Funeral. The songs on Funeral can hold up on their own, but I think Neon Bible is going to play out more as a concept album.

Seems to suggest early March as a release date? Oh, how I love the way this album is being drip-feed by the band to us!
OH! Win wrote a letter to the NME:
Dear New Musical Express,
How are you? It is almost Christmas time. It is hard to belive it has been almost a year since we started recording demos for our new record.
Regine found a listing for this small church for sale on the outskirts on Montreal and we fell in love with the place. We hadn’t been planning on building a studio, (we were actually thinking about recording in New Orleans if you can believe it?) but we suddenly saw our futureselves recording and mixing and mowing the lawn (which I guess was a vision of now, or maybe our next record, it is hard to tell).
How are the kids in England? What kind of music do they listen to these days? It must be a lot a pressure to come up with a new magazine every week, we only have to make record every couple of years.
Our new record was mostly recorded in our studio and a few other churches around town. We found a pipe organ that made some of us cry. Richard finally found a celeste and discovered a million sounds you can make on guitar that sound like women screaming, or planes crashing into buildings. Regine bought a medieval instrument called a hurdy-gurdy and Tim and Will used bass steel drums and Taurus pedals, as well as plugging basses through tiny guitar amps.
Jeremy played drums like a madman (and the best piano line on the record) and Sarah and Owen made two violins sound like an orchestra or a breaking mirror (though we did cheat by having a real orchestra and a military choir from Budapest play on a few songs).
We decided to produce the album ourselves. W(T?)hen we did some research on the internet and discovered that what we have always done (dreaming about sounds and trying to make them into reality), technically qualifies as producing…though we did have two excellent engineers to help us; Scott Colburn (who recorded Sun City Girls and Animal Collective) and Markus Dravs (Bjork, Brian Eno and James).
Please tell the kids in England that we are looking forward to seeing them, and we can’t wait for them to hear our new record.
PS, If yo put my name on the top of a list and place your name below mine and send this letter to five other people, and have them send this letter to five other people, and whoever gets the letter has to send a pound to everyone above them on the list, we will all male a lot of money! It should look like this:
New Musical Express

The 3 songs leaked so far along with the earlier KCRW version of Intervention for comparison.
