I Am Skooter
So here's us, on the raggedy edge.
Trees held us in on all four sides so thick we could not see / I could not see any wrong in you, and you saw none in me.

Neon Bible

Neon Bible Neon Bible is the new album from Montreal’s Arcade Fire. It’s also the best rock album I’ve heard in as long as I can remember.

Intervention can be found in many iterations and was played on Saturday Night Live last weekend with backing vocals sung into a megaphone instead of a microphone. The album version features a powerful organ line throughout and a bass line that hasn’t been heard in ages.

Working for the church
while your family dies.
You take what they give you
and you keep it inside.
Every spark of friendship and love
will die without a home.
Hear the soldier groan, “We’ll go at it alone.”

This album is good enough that it supplanted, at least for a day, Neko Case as my listening of choice. I can’t wait to dial it in on my iPod beneath a motorcycle helmet…that’s going to be a hell of a ride.
