video: the wedge presents arcade fire [interview] (2011)

not only is his band suddenly everywhere with the release of a new album, but as the host of “the wedge” on canada’s muchmusic channel, fucked up’s damian abraham gets to play field journalist to some great bands; this one being arcade fire.

the brothers butler touch base with their recent award successes, their humble quebec beginnings, and their overall career which has quite skyrocketed in the past year. the best part? with a interviewer like abraham, it’s more like a bro-out session than a q&a. check out the 3-part interview at the link below.

video: arcade fire & spike jonze – scenes from the suburbs (2011)

[vodpod id=Video.4941799&w=425&h=350&fv=theme%3Dblack%26amp%3BhighlightColor%3D0xFFFFFF%26amp%3Bwidget_id%3Dhttp%3A%2F%2Fapp.topspin.net%2Fapi%2Fv1%2Fartist%2F242%2Fbundle_widget%2F45492%26amp%3Btheme%3Dblack]

the project that arcade fire and spike jonze were collaborating on has bolstered into a full-blown short film entitled scenes from the suburbs and will premiere next month at the berlin film festival. win butler described the project as a “science-fiction B-movie companion piece” to the band’s latest album.

in this short but emotional clip, set to the title song, a group or suburban ragtags on two-wheelers play out an picturesque adolescent summer, oblivious to the ever encroaching proximity of the military until their lives turn to sheer anarchy.
