New Arcade Fire Coming!

The new Arcade Fire album is coming out on August 3, and the reviews are very favorable. So far on Metacritic the album, which is titled The Suburbs, has a score of 92. That's higher than both Funeral (one of my two or three favorite albums of the 20th century) and its follow-up Neon Bible. I've been hearing one of the singles on the alternative station here in Austin, and it definitely sounds like this band from Montreal is going in a different direction.

I'll be hitting Waterloo Records the day it comes out--it'll be an early birthday present!
