It’s Monday and this week-end, LCD Soundsystem played one last time. Here is the whole show in all its glory ! It’s a 3 hours and 30 minutes of good music. Arcade Fire was invited (go to 2:04:00).  This is LCD Soundsystem’s very last show at Madison Square Garden, New York, NY – 2011-04-02. Complete set list after the jump.  Have a very good Monday ! Enjoy !

C’est lundi et vous le savez peut-être, le groupe LCD Soundsystem a décidé de se séparer. Mais avant, ils ont organisé un dernier concert à Madison Square. C’était samedi dernier. C’est ce que je vous propose aujourd’hui en chanson du lundi : 3 heures 30 minutes de bon son. Leur final est sublime. Bon lundi. (J’oubliais, la liste des morceaux avec des raccourcis pour y accéder est page suivante, à 2:04:00, Arcade Fire vient faire coucou sur scène). Bon Lundi ! Continue reading »

Monday is here. Suburbs are more attractive than the workplace. Youth is living without caring for adults. This music video fo Arcade Fire‘s The Suburbs reminds us what it is to be young and restless away from the adult serious life. This one is less exciting than the previous interactive music video they made before for this song.
Lundi est déjà là. Du coup, pour ceux qui reprennent le travail, voici un clip d’Arcade Fire réalisé par Spike Jonze (Where The Wild Things Are / Max et les Maximonstres) qui nous montre une jeunesse insouciante qui s’amuse pendant que les adultes font leurs trucs d’adultes. J’avais déjà présenté un clip interactif hallucinant de cette chanson. Du coup, celui-ci, malgré sa richesse et sa force est forcément moins bien. Peu importe, la chanson reste superbe. Bon lundi.
  • Paroles de / Lyrics of The Suburbs, by Arcade Fire :
In the suburbs, I
I learned to drive
And you told me I’d never survive
Grab your mother’s keys, we’re leaving

You always seemed so sure
That one day we’d fight in
In a suburban war
You put it down against mine
I saw you standing on the opposite shore
Nobody down, the first bombs fell
We were already bored
We were already, already bored

Sometimes I can’t believe it
I’m moving past the feeling
Sometimes I can’t believe it
I’m moving past the feeling again

The kids won’t be so hard
In my dreams we’re still screaming
Running through the yard
And all the walls that they built in the 70s finally fall
And all of the houses they built in the 70s finally fall
It meant nothing at all
It meant nothing at all
It meant nothing

Sometimes I can’t believe it
I’m moving past the feeling
Sometimes I can’t believe it
I’m moving past the feeling into the night

I just can’t understand
How I want a daughter while I’m still young
I want to hold her hand
Show her some beauty
Before this damage is done
But if it’s too much to ask
If it’s too much to ask
Send me a son

Under the overpass
In the parking lot we’re still waiting
It’s already passed
So move your feet from hot pavement
And into the grass
Cause it’s already passed
It’s already already passed

Sometimes I can’t believe it
I’m moving past the feeling
Sometimes I can’t believe it
I’m moving past the feeling again

I’m moving past the feeling
I’m moving past the feeling

In my dreams we’re still screaming
We’re still screaming
We’re still screaming

Called “The Wilderness Downtown”, the project was created by writer/director Chris Milk with the band Arcade Fire and Google. Building this project on the web and for the browser allowed us to craft an experience that is not only personalized, but also deeply personal for each viewer. “The Wilderness Downtown” takes you down memory lane through the streets you grew up in. It’s set to Arcade Fire’s new song “We Used to Wait” off their newly released album The Suburbs. The project was built with the latest web technologies and includes HTML5, Google Maps, an integrated drawing tool, as well as multiple browser windows that move around the screen.

This site was designed with Google Chrome in mind and is unable to render properly with another browser. It works with Firefox, but it is strange. [Wilderness Downtown]

Voici un projet mené par Google pour mettre en valeur leurs dernières technologies : Google Chrome, HTML5, Google Maps, un outil de dessin. Le résultat est un des plus impressionnants que j’ai vu depuis longtemps. Pour y arriver, ils ont demandé au groupe Arcade Fire et  Chris Milk  de réaliser ce projet unique pour l’instant. Vous verrez des fenêtres s’ouvrir et se fermer, vous allez pouvoir dessiner  directement sur certaines d’entre-elles, vous regardez en même temps un clip malin où les scènes se mêlent avec des images de votre ville natale. Je ne vous en dis pas plus, allez faire un tour sur leur site. Seule remarque : il est conseillé d’utiliser Chrome pour profiter au mieux de cette expérience. (Si vous n’avez pas envie, ça marche aussi avec Firefox, mais c’est moins bien).[Wilderness Downtown]

Lyrics – Paroles :  We Used To Wait, by Arcade Fire

I used to write,
I used to write letters I used to sign my name
I used to sleep at night
Before the flashing lights settled deep in my brain

But by the time we met
By the time we met the times had already changed

So I never wrote a letter
I never took my true heart I never wrote it down
So when the lights cut out
I was left standing in the wilderness downtown

Now our lives are changing fast
Now our lives are changing fast
Hope that something pure can last
Hope that something pure can last

It seems strange anekatips
How we used to wait for letters to arrive
But what’s stranger still
Is how something so small can keep you alive

We used to wait
We used to waste hours just walking around
We used to wait
All those wasted lives in the wilderness downtown

oooo we used to wait
oooo we used to wait
oooo we used to wait
Sometimes it never came
(oooo we used to wait)
Sometimes it never came
(oooo we used to wait)
Still moving through the pain
(oooooo)

I’m gonna write a letter to my true love
I’m gonna sign my name
Like a patient on a table
I wanna walk again gonna move through the pain

Now our lives are changing fast
Now our lives are changing fast
Hope that something pure can last
Hope that something pure can last

oooo we used to wait
oooo we used to wait
oooo we used to wait
Sometimes it never came
(oooo we used to wait)
Sometimes it never came
(oooo we used to wait)
Still moving through the pain
(oooooo) anekatips

we used to wait (x3)

We used to wait for it
We used to wait for it
Now we’re screaming sing the chorus again
We used to wait for it
We used to wait for it
Now we’re screaming sing the chorus again

I used to wait for it
I used to wait for it
Hear my voice screaming sing the chorus again

Wait for it (x3)

Arcade Fire played, just for La Blogothèque and his Take-Away Show, March 19th, at Olympia Hall, in Paris. They sung Neon Bible in an elevator and started the concert into the crowd with Wake Up.
Aujourd’hui, c’est férié. Rien ne presse. Alors, prenez le temps de savourer ce concert à emporter. La première raison, c’est qu’il s’agit d’Arcade Fire, ce génialissime groupe canadien. Ensuite, c’est parce qu’ils interprètent leur morceau intimiste Neon Bible entassés dans un ascenseur avec les pages d’un magazine qui se déchirent pour cymbales et la cage métallique comme caisse de résonance. Et pour finir, on assiste au début de leur concert, avec eux, dans la fosse, alors qu’ils jouent Wake Up au milieu de la foule. C’est parfait pour un 11 novembre pluvieux. [Blogothèque]
  • Et comme toujours, les paroles de Neon Bible / Lyrics :
A vial of hope and a vial of pain,
In the light they both looked the same.
Pourred them out on into the world,
On every boy and every girl.

It’s in the Neon Bible, the Neon Bible
Not much chance for survival,
If the Neon Bible is right.

Take the poison of your age,
Don’t lick your fingers when you turn the page,
What I know is what you know is right,
In the city it’s the only light.

It’s the Neon Bible, the Neon Bible
Not much chance for survival,
If the Neon Bible is right.

Oh God! well look at you now!
Oh! you lost it, but you don’t know how!
In the light of a golden calf,
Oh God! I had to laugh!

Take the poison of your age,
Don’t lick your fingers when you turn the page,
It was wrong but you said it was right,
In the future I will read at night.

In the Neon Bible, the Neon Bible
Not much chance for survival,
If the Neon Bible is true.

  • Et les paroles de Wake Up / Lyrics :
Somethin’ filled up
my heart with nothin’,
someone told me not to cry.

But now that I’m older,
my heart’s colder,
and I can see that it’s a lie.

Children wake up,
hold your mistake up,
before they turn the summer into dust.

If the children don’t grow up,
our bodies get bigger but our hearts get torn up.
We’re just a million little gods causin’ rain storms turnin’ every good thing to
rust.

I guess we’ll just have to adjust.

With my lightnin’ bolts a glowin’
I can see where I am goin’ to be
when the reaper he reaches and touches my hand.

With my lightnin’ bolts a glowin’
I can see where I am goin’
With my lightnin’ bolts a glowin’
I can see where I am, go-go, where I am
