Arcade Fire
The Shins
Tokyo Police Club

arcade fire - heard the new album a few times. i found it totally forgettable. i loved funeral, too. i guess it's hard to live up to THAT much hype the second time around...

tokyo police club. again, heard it a few times. made no impression on me.

the shins though, FUCKING HELL.
best. album. ever.

problem is for me right now, is that sounds get bastardised so quickly. i was listening to this band called little man tate and it is THE most painful thing i've ever heard. pure wank. and a blatent tug on teh coat tails of the Arctic Monkeys.

right now, there are alot of indie bands going down the big sound, pseudo gothic orchestral route and encrouching on what was previously Fire territory. Im not saying that they invented it, but they perfected it on Funeral.

Neon Bible isnt as immediate as Funeral, but it will grow. The pimped version of No Cars Go will melt faces off.
