So much for that. I’ve seen some statistics from the indie music ticket market on the concert sales based on ticket prices and it’s not looking good for The Arcade Fire. They ranked last among a group of other indie faves like MGMT, LCD Soundsystem, The Vampire Weekend, Band of Horses and The National. But I do admire the fact that they’re not robbing their fans who want to see them play live. More points. Maybe the numbers will look up later this half of the year. Vampire Weekend seem to enjoy their fandom and upping price those tickets.
“Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)” is previewed from Arcade Fire’s new album The Suburbs, expected August 2 via Merge. A lot of buzz that this record has gotten out of its cage but I say do what’s best and take a bite off this new track. Although this album does pale in comparison to the highly acclaimed Funeral, there are also good ones from this record like Month of May, Ready to Start and We Used to Wait, among others. Kill some time with these previously released tracks because these certainly don’t disappoint. Count that these tracks come packed with a fetching album cover makes it all the worth buying. I dig.
