The Drums Cover Arcade Fire, No Kidding

This makes me very nervous, but I’m staring at a YouTube link to a live recording of The Drums taking on Arcade Fire’s “We Used to Wait,” and I’m about to click on it.

So it’s obviously much more bouncy than the original, with plenty of clanking guitars and a swinging backbeat. I could see Win Butler hearing it, and it getting under his skin a little bit. Why singer Jonathan Pierce insists on pronouncing the word “last” so funny is beyond me, as why he sounds so breathless and British, but, all in all, I’m really digging it. Is that bad?
