When a band puts out an album called THE SUBURBS, you know I'm going to get email about it. I'll eventually buy the album (or download the iTunes - - what do we say nowadays?), but not because I'm looking for insight into the suburban experience. I just like Arcade Fire.
Don't wait around when it comes to their promotional website, though. It's an interactive film of sorts that integrates GoogleMaps and your childhood neighborhood. Go play.
