    What are your thoughts on the new arcade fire song and how do you feel about James Murphy's influence on it



    I am having trouble embedding the YouTube video from my mobile device but here is the link for it

    The Arcade Fire always mixed a lot of sound influences into their music and this isn't their first foray into more electronic sound ("Sprawl II").

    I do see where you would see a James Murphy sound in this new track, but then again James Murphy is a bit derivative himself.

    I like this new song, but in a sort of harmless and pedestrian sort of way. It will be in commercials and/or movies. Its not amazing me or changing my life.

    As an indie music snob, I never cared for Arcade Fire. Plus they aren't really indie.

    Technically they are "indie" because they are on an independent music label. :grad:

    Mercury Records isn't indie.

    their first album was great, but they seem like assholes. i guess indie is kind of a subjective term when you really thinkn about it

    That's who distributed the album in the UK for them....they were on Merge here in the US. This new album is apparently on Rough Trade.

    Sex is nothing but pleasant touch.

    Good food is nothing but pleasant taste.

    Neither are necessary for one individual human being to live, but they certainly make things more interesting. :D

    Merge is a great label, almost as good as Touch & Go.

    It says their new album is coming out on Mercury Records, and they are on the Mercury Records website as an artist.
