Here's a new tune from Arcade Fire, loving the sound of this, reminds me of Talking Heads (anyone else with me?). I have an mp3 that my buddy JayO sent me this morning if anyone wants it. Just shoot me an email at and I can send it your way. Enjoy!!!

The Airborne Toxic Event: All I Ever Wanted

This DVD looks pretty awesome. Here's the official release I received:

"The Airborne Toxic Event are set to release a documentaryfilm about their sold-out performance at the internationally renowned Walt Disney Concert Hall, featuring an eclectic mix of musicians and performers-ranging from a children'schoir, a world-class string quartet, a high school marching band, horn players, visual artists, and Mexican folkórico dancers. Available in the U.S. on September 7th, All I Ever Wanted: Live From the WaltDisney Concert Hall offers an intimate, behind-the-sceneslook at the exhaustive rehearsals and preparation that went into putting on the show at the Frank Gehry-designed venue, home of the Los Angeles Philharmonic.

Praised by the Los Angeles Times as a "performance of genuine warmth and ambition," the concert in December of 2009 was the last of 354 shows the Airborne Toxic Event played in support of the their debut release.With string accompaniment from the Calder Quartet, the show features selections from that album, as well as new songs and never-before-recorded cover versions of the Ramones' "Do You Remember Rock 'n' Roll Radio?" (with the Belmont High School Marching Band), the Magnet Fields' "The Book of Love," and Q Lazzarus's "Goodbye Horses."
