Like every other snot-nosed punk of a music resource, we love us some Arcade Fire. Their fiery, symphonic baroque-indie rock has been boiling our blood (good thing) since Funeral was released way back in September of 2004. And Neon Bible, fah-get-AH-bow-tit. Definitely no sign sophomore slump. So if you can't handle waiting for the next 7" or import or EP or bootleg to hit the proverbial streets/internet(s), then check out The String Quartet Tribute to the Arcade Fire's Funeral. Described as "an instrumental voyage through the band's dreamy and startling landscapes," this string tribute re-creates the band's instant classick Funeral in its entirety, maximizing their already orchestral sound. Download interpretations of "Rebellion (Lies)" and "Wake Up" below.
