180-gram vinyl reissue from 2009. Arcade Fire broke out of Montreal for superstardom in 2004 with their hit album “Funeral.” Setting the trend for melancholy indie rock, “Funeral” is set in an apocalyptic situation, where history is forgotten, families are torn asunder and young love still tries to conquer all. Led by the husband-and-wife duo of Win Butler and Régine Chassagne, Arcade Fire delves into llife’s sadness. Songs include a 4-set of “Neighborhood” songs. Other hits include “Rebellion” and “Wake Up.” “Funeral” climbed all the way up to #4 on the Billboard Top Independent Albums chart. The reissue sounds even better than the original, as it is pressed in 180-gram audiophile vinyl. Merge Records.
