The Arcade Fire was on SNL this past weekend, and overall, it was kind of blah. I haven't spent a lot of time with their new album, but I am not really feeling it as much as Funeral, but I'll give it another chance. The show was pretty disappointing as well.
Speaking of disappointing, I saw Razorlight last night. My god that new record is awful, and I can't believe how many people went crazy when they played "America." Plus some dude was waving an Irish flag during their set, does he even know that the band isn't from there?
This week, look for more SXSW previews as well a new feature where I'll be looking at a few of my all time favorite bands, starting with Saint Etienne. I was going to do Manic Street Preachers first, but Jamie's Runout Groove did an admirable job of covering them, so I'll just direct you to his profile.
