OK, I’m late to the dance on this one… it’s old…

The Arcade Fire’s latest 2010 video is an interactive interpretation of their song “We Used To Wait“… you put in where you grew up, and it brings in your old neighborhood into the video mix.  Behold, “The Wilderness Downtown“…

Creepy technology using Google Maps API, HTML5, and scripts… read more about the tech here.

2 Sufjan & The National & Arcade Fire Xmas songs…

21st Dec 10 (Tue) Leave a comment

Thanks to Between Hipsters and God… two Christmas rarities of Sufjan Stevens (from 2006) have been unearthed.  They are off the still unreleased Songs for Christmas Volume 6 (Gloria!) featuring The National‘s Aaron & Bryce Dessner as well as The Arcade Fire‘s Richard Reed Parry.  They were out via the National & Arcade Fire DJ set on BBC6.

The 6th Christmas EP is yet to be released officially… Xmas EP #8 came out in 2008… so, maybe next year, Asthmatic Kitty will release another 5 EP boxset?  We can only hope…
