A 'Gift' From Arcade Fire

After the hype and speculation (fuelled by Pitchfork saying it was going to be 'cool') it turns out the gift from Arcade Fire is an interactive video.

Which is fun it itself, but announcing a 'gift' like that the week Radiohead have pretty much given away their new album is akin to an uncle promising a present, which turns out to be a once off trip to the local leisure centre, when Daddy's just bought you a pool.

A bit of an anti-climax in other words.

This one has backfired methinks Mr. Butler...unless I'm missing something?

i thought the same, that i was missing something completely spectacular, but that's it.


i was starting to drift towards disliking arcade fire's desperate 'take us seriously' demands.

although it does look fairly cool.

hhhmmmm
