Well, I've Found My New Favorite Arcade Fire YouTube Clip

Pretty much every new one I see blows my mind, but this one is special. This is from Coachella in '05 and is probably one of the boiling points for their US buzz. That's not why it's special for me. Personally, it reminds me of one of the fondest musical scenes in my life that took place about 3 months later at Austin City Limits Music Festival. Standing about 8 people deep in a crowd of 40 thousand people (smart enough to see them instead of Jason Mraz). It was 108 degrees out and everyone was drenched in sweat. But seeing these guys' set made it seem like a baptism. It was unbelievable.
