Play, Pause, Repeat: Sprawl II: Mountains Beyond Mountains (live)

4 Jan


I simply cannot stop listening to this song. I haven’t even really gotten into the rest of The Suburbs, but this song man, it got its hooks in me. It is Arcade Fire at its best, wielding their poetic skills in perfect balance with sprawling (ha!) orchestration. The more I listen to them the more I feel that they are becoming the defining rock band of our generation. They appeal to everyone on some level, even if only for a song or two. They sell millions of records and sell out shows around the world all while remaining on a relatively small independent label, a sin of the times and the future both at once. All that aside this song is simply phenomenal and gives Regine more time to shine, something she richly deserves. For anyone who, like me, grew up between coasts or in small towns this song cuts deep. I have seriously listened to it nearly twenty times today and so could not resist posting.
