Music Monday 10.8.07


Arcade Fire has a new interactive site/video/thing for "Neon Bible. "  Pretty cool.

New Band of Horses, Cease to Begin, comes out tomorrow.  Their previous album, Everything All the Time, was great so I'm expecting more good stuff.  Listen to four of the new tracks at Band of Horses' MySpacePitchfork has given a good early review.

The fine folks at Stereogum have followed up their tribute album to Radiohead's OK Computer with a tribute to REM's Automatic for the People.

Nire is new to me, but I've enjoyed their MySpace offerings.  Stereogum names them as a band to watch, and all the more with Vespers being released tomorrow.  They offer a free download of "Wide-Eyed, Restless" that you should pick up. 

I mentioned last week that Alaska in Winter opened for Beirut and that I picked up their CD, Dance Party in the Balkans.  Been listening to it all week and haven't tired of it at all.  Love it.  This is something like the concert experience...

Here's a video for "The Homeless and a Hummingbird"....
