Arcade Fire’s The Suburbs Officially Drops Today August 3, 2010

The most anticipated album of the year is finally here!

Arcade Fire’s third LP, The Suburbs was released today.  The concept behind the album began in 2009, when front man Win Butler received a letter from his childhood friend from outside of Huston, Texas:

“He sent us a picture of him with his daughter on his shoulders at the mall around the corner from where we lived, and the combination of seeing this familiar place and seeing my friend with his child brought back a lot of feeling from that time. I found myself trying to remember the town that we grew up in and trying to retrace as much as I could remember.”

Pick up this amazing album, and for today only, Amazon is offering the MP3 format of The Suburbs for $3.99 and the CD for $7.99!!!  Click here to download and get the deets.

Song of the Day – Tuesday 5/18/2010 Broken Social Scene May 18, 2010

MizMuze had some upload issues (most likely user-error) and had intended on featuring Band of Horses’ song “Factory” today (see the next post for more info). 

So instead, please enjoy a tune from Canada’s Broken Social Scene; a musical collective (sometimes as large as 19 band members) which include members from Stars, Metric, Feist, and Jason Collett.  The band’s fourth studio album, Forgiveness Rock Record was released on 5/4/2010. 

Look!  Up in the sky…it’s a bird…it’s a plane…it’s Supergroup, Broken Social Scene!
