30A30D- Day 7- "Funeral" - Arcade Fire

"Funeral" - Arcade Fire

Arcade Fire is just one of those bands that consistently puts out remarkable work. I've listened quite a ton to one of their other albums (The Suburbs) but I've never listened to this album which is their first. Overall, I think even on just the first listen, I think I may even have liked it more than The Suburbs. Their sound is so distinctive, and so atmospheric, based on layers of unique instrumentals (and their actual band is huge too, so many musicians.) The result is this deliciously textured sound. This is honestly the sort of album you just want to sit and listen to in one sitting, and do nothing else. It's so beautiful.

I need to listen to Arcade Fire more.
