Riding high off their Grammy win, and with a post-celebratory jaunt around the world this spring and summer, Arcade Fire show no signs of slowing down any time soon. And they still have more in store for their fans including the Spike Jonze-directed short film "Scenes From The Suburbs" which first appeared in an abbreviated form in the video for "The Suburbs."

With their return-to-form record "The Suburbs" winning a surprise victory for Album of the Year at the Grammys last night, Arcade Fire are pretty much at the top of the world right now, and as longtime fans of the band, we're delighted. But the band's ambitions clearly don't stop here: they're going for part two of the EGOT, with a short film collaboration with Spike Jonze that was announced last year, making our filthy hipster brains explode.

For those lucky enough to attend the Berlin Film Festival, they will be able to catch the thirty minute Spike Jonze short film "Scenes From The Suburbs" based around Arcade Fire's latest album "The Suburbs," at one of its four screenings. The rest of us will have to wait, but for now a new poster recently debuted on the band's website, will have to suffice.

You gotta hand it to Arcade Fire. The hard-working indie rockers pretty much write their own playbook and their growing success has allowed them to work on their own terms with likeminded collaborators. Earlier this year they tapped Terry Gilliam to direct a webcast of their Madison Square Garden gig, but long before that, they were hard at work with Spike Jonze on a secretive short film based around the loose themes of their latest album "The Suburbs."

After a rather bombastic, portentous second album, "Neon Bible," indie-rock favorites Arcade Fire came back in force this year with the excellent "The Suburbs," a near-concept record that paired the band's usual apocalyptic themes with images from suburban life. It sounds like it shouldn't work, but it's one of the strongest records of the year, and is likely to top a lot of critics' polls by the end of December.
