There was chatter around the internet yesterday of a new Arcade Fire song. A few weeks ago the band’s website teased us with a mysterious banner presenting “The Suburbs” which was quickly taken down. A short time later, a snippet of a new song played on the site, and a new single was hinted at. We are happy to report that a few of these elusive 12″ singles have made their way out into the world, and subsequently into the digital world.
Hear them for yourself below, and let us know what you think!
Arcade Fire – “The Suburbs”
Arcade Fire – “Month Of May”

As just about anyone who populated the High Noon Saloon last Sunday night can attest, the sweetly soulful, mellow sounds of Bowerbirds in a live setting are nothing short of spectacular. The North Carolina-based indie folk headliners were not, however, the only band who successfully mesmerized the eager ears of the audience. Performances by opening acts Peter Wolf Crier and Sharon Van Etten no doubt earned the respective artists a great many new fans as well.
We’d like to share a few still photos (by Shelley Peckham) and live video (from Justin Kibbel) to remember the night by, as well as a link to listen to the full album stream of Peter Wolf Crier’s latest release, Inter-Be. Enjoy!

“I don’t need from you a waterfall of careless praise/And I don’t need a trophy for all the games I played/But all I want is your eyes…”
This gorgeous, heartfelt song was one of my personal favorites from 2009, and it’s yours to download and enjoy free of charge.
If you’re jonesin’ to see these talented artists perform right here in Madison, you’re in luck! The Bowerbirds will be at the High Noon Saloon on January 17th. Tickets are available here.
Enjoy the song!
More free Bowerbirds downloads can be found here.

You may remember these guys from the Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros show late last year. This wickedly fun Afropop indie band recently recorded a live studio session for Seattle’s KEXP for your listening pleasure. Take a listen here, and check out their sun-soaked video for “Surprise Hotel” below.
(FYI: If you dig Fool’s Gold, you may be interested to know that the band includes several members of the equally impressive Foreign Born, who we’ll be bringing to Madison to play The Frequency on March 4th. You can grab tickets to that show here.)
