Many people were surprised at Arcade Fire's recent grammy win. This reaction surprised me because these guys have been a building block for the soundtrack to my life for a very long time now. From my wild university days to now they have been creating music that touches a nerve with me. It may sound weird but at times it is like they are singing for me not to me. Neighbourhood #1 takes me back to so many good memories.
Ages ago before they became indie darlings in Canada they were playing a show at my old haunt the Power Plant. I had been planning to go see them after some glowing reviews in See magazine. l always regret not getting tickets in time before they sold out.
Here is a fantastic remix by Thunderlust of the already stellar Sprawl II. If this doesn't get your ass moving nothing will.
