Arcade Fire Tease "Contemporary Classics" Via Megaphone, YouTube

By |

With this mock-umercial, The Arcade Fire prove they have both a sense of humor — and a Juno Award! The Canadian indie outfit literally goes commercial with this tongue-in-cheek and scary-mask-sporting, Richard Reed Perry-delivered introduction to their new album, Neon Bible. The CD's scheduled to hit stores March 6th, but you can get a '70s-style sampling of a few new songs (and the full tracklist), introduced by a motionless (and oddly mouthless) Perry who's seated with a megaphone in one hand and his Juno in the other. And though it's not nearly enough to judge, we'll all be doing so anyway. How do these songlets sound to you?

1. "Black Mirror"
2. "Keep The Car Running"
3. "Neon Bible"
4. "Intervention"
5. "Black Wave" / "Bad Vibrations"
6. "Ocean of Noise"
7. "The Well & The Lighthouse"
8. "(Antichrist Television Blues)"
9. "Windowsill"
10. "No Cars Go"
11. "My Body Is A Cage"
