remember when it was 2004 and you were a deeply closeted canadian preteen and you listened to this album b/c you thought it would make you look cool (and it DID make you look cool) and this song definitely resonated with your feelings of adolescent inadequacy and inexplicable alienation from your peers and your family but also the whole time you were kind of just like, man i wish the main singer in this band had a better voice :/, and then you would go back to listening to hannah montana and high school musical? but then when you were 17 and you’d been reading pitchfork for a couple years and you owned the first vampire weekend album on CD so you were a little more inoculated against indie singers with weird voices, you came back to it and you were like, “holy shit” and then for a solid year of your life you listened to funeral and neon bible and the suburbs and nothing else. and then you got really excited for reflektor but it ended up being kind of shit so you sort of fell off the wagon until it was time for album #5 and you initially didn’t care at all but then you put on funeral again and heard those first tinkling piano notes and you were like, okay yeah, arcade fire owns this ass and has owned it for 13-ish years? remember when
u moved? what kinda place r u at now?
