There's a weight that's pressing down

Since my last Arcade Fire post i've listened to Neon Bible about 15 times. I can now say without hesitation that it's a phenomenal record - my favorite since TV On The Radio's Return to Cookie Mountain. I'm completely addicted to it and find myself humming and whistling not just one, but nearly all of the songs. I've decided to post an additional track - a more uptempo one called "Keep The Car Running." There's a small part of this song where his vocal flow reminds me of Bruce Springsteen, a phenomena that also occurs (more prominently) in "(Antichrist Television Blues)." There are moments too where a chorus of voices back the lead vocal in a way that gives me the shivers.

The Arcade Fire "Keep The Car Running"


Another follow-up note: The entire Fulton Lights record is really, really good. It's well worth the $12 I spent on it, if only for the excellent atmospheric productions. You should buy this record too!
