Arcade Fire Reflektors

Remember how we said Arcade Fire would perform some jams from their new record Reflektor live via NPR from L.A.'s Capitol Studios? Well, here's the recording - "Hello, liberal America!" Win Butler exclaims, before launching into the record's title track. They also performed a bunch of our favorites from Reflektor, including "Normal Person," "Afterlife," "We Exist," and more, as well as "Sprawl II" from The Suburbs. In their hour-long set, the band also found time to drop abbreviated versions of a few Lou Reed covers - sample their version of "Perfect Day" about 17 minutes in, and "Satellite of Love" around 22 minutes. It's basically imperative that you cut an hour out of your day today to listen.

REVIEW: RELFKETOR IS ARCADE FIRE'S OK COMPUTER
