arcade fire

This is pretty amazing. An interactive video created in and for google chrome. If you don't have chrome already, the site will prompt you to d/l it and provide a link.

It's a piece of art, really, more than a music video, that plays along with Arcade Fire's new song "The Wilderness Downtown." It's a very haunting take on childhood and loss, but in the form of a song that is not terribly morose musically, rather uptempo. In fact, the whole record, though critically panned in some quarters is pretty amazing.

Check it.

ADDENDUM: Sorry, the film/interactive piece is called "The Wilderness Downtown." The song's called "We Used to Wait." Obviously--they only repeat that phrase 70 bajillion times. Great either way.
