Arcade Fire "Here Comes the Night Time" directed by Roman CoppolaMusic // Monday, 30 Sep 2013
I'm not going to pretend that I was in the best headspace at 1AM on Saturday night when I decided to tune into Arcade Fire's 30 min NBC special that was aired after SNL. Part of me thought, "Hey, bands don't do network specials anymore, and Arcade Fire tend to be on the more interesting end of things, why not pour a little whiskey and watch?" What I turned to was a bizarre, experimental, oddball, celebrity-cameo'd, Roman Coppola-directed entree into the Montreal band's upcoming LP, Reflektor. We got to hand it to NBC... getting this on air takes... well, you know what we mean...Watch for Bill Hader, James Franco, Ben Stiller, Bono, Michael Cera, Zack Galifianakis, and songs that sounds like Caribbean Disco.
