Stumble Findings: The Wilderness Downtown

I stumbled across this fantastic find over the summer, but totally forgot to post it on the blog (I was busy interning at the time).

Anyway, this is a lovely interactive work of music video art created by Arcade Fire. It is so interactive, in fact, that it SHOWS YOU YOUR OWN NEIGHBORHOOD. For those of you (my brother and myself included) who have moved away from the house and neighborhood in which you grew up, the emotional impact is indescribable--so experience it for yourself here:

Enjoy!

  1. Arcade Fire rules! And you're right, this 'video' of my hometown set to their awesome song made me all nostalgic. Not gonna lie, I got choked up.

    And definitely feel you on that one, rbs. No shame in missing childhood! I like music that moves you to feel something.
