Arcade Fire Covers Uncontrollable Urge

With the release of the latest effort, Arcade Fire has been equally praised and pilloried.  Personally, I downloaded the entire album, and love it.  However, and band's effort was massively over-hyped, and the arrows they're taking likely stem more from a rejection of their commercial formula than they do over purely musical merits.

Folks, there's not a ton of great music out there that has been released in the past 6 months, and stacked against that, Arcade Fire's Reflektor is fabulous.

One thing I've admired about the band has been their hat tips to bands that came before them, and here is the latest.  In a recent concert in L.A, the band covered one of Devo's more obscure hits, and covered it extremely well:

Good stuff, indeed.
