Arcade Fire and Kim Gordon Contribute to Short Film You’ll Probably Never See
The Believer‘s annual music issue is out next week. Music junkies know this is a cause for celebration, because the issue usually features some of the year’s very best music writing.
The 2014 edition includes a seven-inch single that features music from a new short film by Marcel Dzama. Big whoop, right? Well, the artist has worked with people like Beck and Arcade Fire in the past, and the film, ‘Une Danse Des Bouffons,’ features music by members of the latter.

Gordon plays a woman who’s in love with dead French artist Marcel Duchamp. She also sports a black wig. The music — four songs are included on the Believer seven-inch — is instrumental. So if that sounds like your thing, the movie will probably be making the art-house rounds soon.
