The Wilderness Downtown

Those who follow this blog, are probably aware that i’m a huge fan of Arcade Fire. There’s plenty of proof.

Not only is “The Suburbs” their most mature album to date, but they keep pushing the limits on their relationship with new media. Their latest has a digital edition with lyrics embedded on album art, with links to extended info.

And now, this. An HTML5+Google Maps experiment for Google Chrome, playing “We Used to Wait” as a soundtrack to your hometown.

As Régine sings, “quit these pretentious things and just punch the clock”. Just go ahead and watch it.
