Around The Blogs: Arcade Fire, Phoenix, Wild Light, Temper Trap

Big day for music news.

Exclaim! says the Arcade Fire are planning to release their as-yet-untitled third album in May, with a single before that with tourdates in the spring. The new record will also be produced by Coldplay‘s producer Markus Dravs.

Phoenix are on la Blogotheque. Versions of ‘1901’ and ‘Litszomania’ are there, filmed in locations around Paris. I was partial to the older song ‘Long Distance Call’, which got me into the band way back and is embedded below.
