Pitchfork Best New Music of 2010 (september update)

(we're ready to start listening to Arcade Fire on Spotify, please!)
(Ready To Start, live at Rock en Seine 2010, Paris)

Exactly three nights ago I was walking out the Rock en Seine area in the Paris southwestern suburbs, shocked and amazed by a wonderful show by the Arcade Fire. Unfortunately, it was interrupted by a heavy and windy rainstorm, but culminated with a wild, tribal, wet, unplugged version of Wake Up (take a look). The excitement, apres le deluge.

Now I'm back to my country, with some good memories and a damned cold to remind me of that night. I regained my possessions, including the pc and this blog. And I find myself thinking about Arcade Fire again. Their latest album The Suburbs has been included in Pitchfork selection of best new music of 2010, but I cannot find it on Spotify yet. It's the same destiny of Funeral and Neon Bible. Merge Records and canadian great guys, please, come on... you are technology-oriented, you even just made that lovely nostalgic streetviewesque video with Google, why not Spotify?

Anyway, ceci ce n'est pas un post about Arcade Fire, this is the update of the mixtape I started a couple of months, featuring Pitchfork Best New Music of 2010. Three songs each album, to get a taste of them. In bold, the albums I added today. Enjoy!

And if you have the chance and you haven't done it yet, go to an Arcade Fire concert! C'est la pure energie de la musique, la plus belle, la plus fort. Even without the annoying epic of rainstorms, I bet. :o)
(... and pardon my french, won't happen again).
