Matt & Kim have never given us a reason to dislike them. They run around naked. They are super appreciative of their fans and every type of success they have. I am sure they have never not been smiling. And so, of course, the first single off the upcoming album Sidewalks, does not disappoint. “Cameras” […]
Tech nerds will rejoice because this interactive film showcases the potential of HTML5. For everyone else, this interactive video is a pretty cool film featuring the music of The Arcade Fire.
