The Arcade Fire – Funeral

Listened: Tuesday July 6

Arcade Fire – one of the biggest bands of my 20s. Funeral was like an explosion when it came out. It doesn’t sound like anything else.

The year Arcade Fire blew up with this album they performed one of the most memorable shows of my Coachella attendance-career (which now spans 7 years, so that’s saying something). Sunset at the Outdoor Stage, embraced by a crowd of people singing along earnestly with me and the band, with a bit of theatrics thrown in – it was one of those magical moments that’s gone so quickly.
