New Arcade Fire

The planets must really be aligned at the moment, first we have Midlake, Band of Horses and New Pornographers visit Sydney in one week, then Neko Case is touring in January and now there is a sneak preview of a new Arcade Fire song from their new album which is apparently called Neon Bible. Thanks to Gorilla vs Bear, i found this out today. If you go to Neon Bible, you can ring a number and listen to the new track "Intervention". I tried it but it wouldn't connect, see if you have any luck. Here is a live version of the track recorded for KCRW, this is a stripped back version of the song, apparently the studio version has pipe organs and is quite incredible, anyway this sounds pretty decent to me.
MP3: Intervention.

    did you dial the ext. 7777? I listened to it, but the fact it was coming out of a cell phone just ruins the song. it is a neat idea though, it may even be revolutionary.

    just about everyone has a cell phone with them these days and it'd be a nice icebreaker. "hey wanna listen to a new arcade fire song? yeah? dial this risky looking 1-800 number!"

    I should probably call again to hear it one more time.

    Great, this is one I'm looking forward to very much. Wonder if they have any plans to visit us in Australia? What is it with Canada, so many excellent bands at the moment? Arcade Fire, New Pornographers, also don't mind Metric and Wolf Parade.
