Arcade Fire Revise a Haunting Classic for Triple J
  • THURSDAY, JANUARY 30, 2014

With seven months separating us from Arcade Fire's next visit to the New York-metro area, we'll have to tide ourselves over with little snippets like this Triple J session, recorded during their pass through Australia during their massive world tour. In addition to performing versions of Reflektor tracks "Normal Person" and "Joan of Arc", they unleashed a hauntingly beautiful rendition of the Neon Bible classic "My Body Is a Cage" that features a medieval choir backing reminiscent of Alt-J's "Fitzpleasure".

Holy hell...with all of dance-ridden grooves saturating Reflektor, we nearly forgot about the core-cutting potency that drove Arcade Fire's original allure.
