Arcade Fire

The Arcade Fire is one of the year's most unexpected success stories. The Montreal-based collective's debut album "Funeral" has been both critically adored and dissected (the album's themes of reconciliation and mourning were inspired by the deaths of family members). Despite the solemn existentialist overtones, the band's music is quite uplifting. Like Broken Social Scene or The Walkmen, The Arcade Fire divides its efforts between soaring rock songs and sublime indie-folk.
