this is the perfect band to demonstrate the future, the new insturments and directions for the Indie scene, they can melt some styles all together and make it into the AF style.

I think their folk likr lyric style, really suits they high-beat acoustic techniques, I absoloutly love this band, you have no idea how hard it was to find the album in Israel.

My dying wish is to be in one of their shows.

P.S

I did made a search, and I didn't find any defined thread for the band

Great band. I would LOVE them if they had some better vocalists, but it's OK. As it is, I am perfectly happy with their sound. Funeral was crazy good.

The next album (due in 2007) will be killer.
#3
i think their vocals kick ass, maybe the girl gets a little wierd, but it just takes some getting used to.
#4
can't wait for the new album,

The vocals ARE good, Win Butler has this kind of 'tired' voice, I can really dig it.

it's hard to believe we don't already have a thread on them

oh right, we do

personally, think they're alright, but they'd be nothing without the montreal influence. and by that, i mean ripping off every other band in montreal
#7
really? what other bands do they sound like? i'd like to check them out for myself.
#8
to me there's a huge difference from their ep to their lp. and the lp being recorded at hotel2tango. if you need me to explain more, you really ought to do some reading.
#9
I haven't heard enough of them... Only a few songs, but I love what I hear.
And when Wake Up came on as the intro music at the U2 concert I was at last week... It was so damn good. Best intro song for a stadium gig ever.
#10
I lvoe these guys! Very different from all other bands around now, and I can't wait for the next album.

Funeral was absolutley amazing, and I can listen to it ANYTIME, so they've got a massive album to beat.
#12
The Arcade Fire is amazing! I love all their songs. For some reason I didnt used to like them, but then I heard them play Rebellion live and it was just great. So I listened to a lot of their other stuff and its so great. The lyrics and vocals really fit with he mood of the music.
#13
Though brilliant, Funeral can get a bit boring sometimes. Especially in the second half (except Rebellion)

^ I think most people just played it quite a lot when they first got it as it is an excellent album from first listen, but it seemed to tire reasonably quickly. I hate how bands have been appearing lately as, "the best thing ever" and then they've completely disappeared a year and a half later. If I was one of these labels I'd make sure there was a single out by now and getting attention to at least remind people that the band still exists.

Why do we feel it's necessary to yak about bullsh*t in order to be comfortable?

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.

really? funeral gets better for me with every listen. but i agree it does seem like they've vanished, but the album in '07 will hopefully shoot them back to our attention

Don't get me wrong; I love Funeral. I think it's terrific. It's just that I have to be in a certain mood to enjoy the whole album all the way through.
#18
I just started listening to them. I haven't listened to funeral all of the way through yet, but I'm digging them a lot.

They have some really sweet instrumentation. I think its cool that a lot of bands lately are breaking free from traditional rock instruments.

#19
^Exactly. Their use of things like the violin and unconventional percussion instruments is what sets them apart from a lot of music.
#20
I love them. heres another thread i'm gonna ***** about in now

Funeral can get a bit boring, crown of love drives me insane, its one of the few songs i can't really stand.

and on the Newsfront, they're recording crap. with big giant church organs *creams*

and no cars go = teh sex.

^Yeah they made the cover of friggin' Time Magazine! I wouldn't call that underrated.
#34
Everyone talks about Funeral....

I was at one of their first shows before 'Funeral' and they had released their first E.P which is better in my opinion. songs like "No Cars Go, Old Flame etc. rule
#35
Okay, they were on the cover of Time magazine, so was Derek Zoolander, it doesn't really mean anything, the situation is that people that are not costume to that kinda of music reject them and people haven't really heard about them..
...And The Nominees Are
#36
there are people who haven't heard of them? wow, this is news to me

and zoolander was just a movie
#38
They were on kerrang once. i thought that was impressive considering kerrangs 'latest trend' abuse, it was the second time i'd heard them ever. They never play them anymore though.
