We love a bit of Arcade Fire, and lucky for us these guys never seem to take a break. They popped into Chicago radio station WBEZ last week to perform some new arrangements of two tracks from their latest album, ‘The Suburbs’, treating listeners to this arrangement of Sprawl II as well as We Used To Wait, two tracks that explore the focal point of the latest album: suburban culture. The performance precedes the release of a deluxe edition of ‘The Suburbs’ in late June, which will include two previously unreleased tracks, Spike Jonze’s Scenes From The Suburbs and a heap of other goodies.
While fans of Arcade Fire’s live shows won’t be used to this kind of mellow session, watching them play sitting still is enthralling—they are clearly at ease with each other and sound just as good here as they do recorded.
