We can't wait until Hipster Runoff wakes up today so that he can sing the praises of the ultimate object of his affection/scorn, Arcade Fire's Régine Chassagne. She is center stage in one of the most expensive-looking music videos not created with helicopter assistance ever made.

Directed by Vincent Morisset, the "Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond

Mountains)" clip also has an interactive version here, which allows you

to, um, do a little Chatroulette dancing with the video to control the

speed of the dancers. No MacBook, S.O.L. buddy! This is NSFW, but only because it's probably

sapping a massive amount of bandwidth. I still don't think The Suburbs was the best Merge album of the Grammy eligibility period, but this Kate Bush-nodding melody is by far the finest of the collection.

Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering South Florida with no paywalls.
