You might already know about the new Arcade Fire album, The Suburbs.

Even when is a good album, I think is by far the less interesting / innovative / emotional from the band (at least from the musical point of view, I didn't payed much attention to the lyrics yet), but I still love their live performance, and I've came across the Unstaged series at the Madison Square Garden and directed by Terry Gilliam. The videos are available in YouTube in HD (many thanks to youtube-dl [*] that let me see the concert without suffering the f*cking Flash Player).

Here is Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains), my favourite song from the new album:
