Artist: Arcade Fire
We're starting up a new feature on Animal Noises today, in the hopes that it becomes a weekly segment. Video Monday will be taken on by both Matt and I on alternating weeks. If it's deemed successful, perhaps we'll change it to the Track of the Week format, but we'll make that choice when the time comes.
Leading off the segment this week is Arcade Fire's "Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels)" off of 2004's Funeral. As the band's first single, and the first track on the album, it provides an interesting window into the concept of the album and the mindset that spawned it. The video portrays various nightmarish cartoon dream sequences ending in an untimely, but none-too-graphic, death. If you're a follower of the band at all, I'm sure you'll appreciate this image of them as a little-known start-up from Canada. If not, it might take a few views to grasp what's going on. Still, an interesting video for a great song. Be sure to check back next Monday as Matt debuts his own video to debut here.
