(Vinyl Love is a series of posts that quite simply lists, describes, and displays the pieces in my growing vinyl collection. You can bet that each record was given a spin during the drafting of each corresponding post.)
Artist: Arcade Fire
Album Title: Funeral
Year released: 2004
Details: black vinyl, 180 gram, embossed gatefold sleeve, “funeral pamphlet”
The skinny: The debut album by Montreal’s indie rock collective led by Win Butler and Régine Chassagne. It’s dark and uplifting, big and bombastic, informed by post-punk but with a voice all its own.
Standout track: “Rebellion (lies)”
