Okay, first of all, one caveat: they have released only samples of their new singles (i.e. not full songs, just 30 seconds or so).  However, given that caveat, I like what I’m hearing, although it’s clearly a bit too early to tell.

Extra points for the cool vinyl design and the ability to manually play the samples via “spinning” the record (I suppose you could also attempt to scratch as well, but my guess is it won’t be that effective).

Samples are on Arcade Fire’s site here – make sure you flip the disc over when the first one is done.
