I'm the kind of person who has a strong love/hate relationship with music videos.
I tivo Subterranean every week on MTV because, besides being one of the few shows worth watching on the network, it has videos from artists that I like and that are usually innovative and interesting to some degree.
The other day I saw the Louis XIV video for their first single, "Finding Out True Love Is Blind." Obviously if you pay any attention to this blog, you know that I really like this band. They're oversexed and just plain fun, so I basically was expecting their videos to be the same sort of campy good times. Unfortunately, the band looks about as bored with the video for this song as I was watching it. WHERE IS THE SEXY, people?
Judge for yourself...

On the other hand, Subterranean showed the new Arcade Fire video for "Rebellion (Lies)" the other night so I was finally able to watch it and WOW. I love this video. Something about it really moved me when I watched it... I think that it captures the song perfectly and really exemplifies what the band is all about in the way it was shot. Gorgeous! I think I can honestly say it is one of the best videos I have ever seen.
Watch it here and tell me what you think.
