One of the biggest bands of 2005, The Arcade Fire seemed to have a much quieter 2006. Funeral is in the short list of albums that get played on my iPod or in iTunes everyday, no matter what (maybe that will be a post in the not to distant future). They're scheduled to release their second full-length album this spring and have released a single on iTunes. Actually, they've released two songs from the upcoming album on iTunes, but only meant to release the one. They released "Intervention", but the file that got sent to iTunes was "Black Wave/Bad Vibrations." The mistake was pretty quickly remedied, but not before it hit the blogs that both songs were available. I ended up with both songs and I have to say, they're both outstanding. It makes me more excited than ever for the new release. You can check out "Intervention" which is the real "Intervention" or their 2004 release Funeral in the iTunes store.
