Arcade Fire Christmas Songs & Music

The Arcade Fire are one of the few indie success stories, a band that have straddled the underground /mainstream divide. Their 2004 debut 'Funeral' is by far their best record but they continue to release engaging material. Sadly they have still to make a definitive holiday tune, despite unofficially putting out 'A Very Arcade Xmas' - a recording from Christmas 2002. This EP contained 4 tracks ('Chestnuts Roasting', 'Oh Holy Night', 'Jingle Bell Rock', 'A Very Arcade Xmas') and every was an absolute stinker. Ok, we get that it was a fun recording session, and the fact that there was probably a good deal of irony in the presentation but why did anyone feel the need to press play and record. I mean, the title track sounds like it has a chorus of howling mutts going on in the background. Such a pity because in time this Montreal band may just blow our collective mulled minds.
