New Arcade Fire Video Is Beyond Epic

As I have previously noted, I am a big, big Arcade Fire fan. I think they are one of the best bands in the world right now. Their new video for the title track of the their latest album - The Suburbs - is absolutely phenomenal. Directed by video legend Spike Jonze, The Suburbs is an example of an art form which has died a horrible, untimely death - the music video as art.

Beautiful, confusing, visceral, hard to forget - in other words, everything great art should be.
