Song of the Day: Arcade Fire Covering the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' "Maps"

Two major music fests took place this weekend: the Austin City Limits Festival in Texas and San Francisco's very own Treasure Island Music Festival, which I had the pleasure of attending. Treasure Island totally rocked, so tune tomorrow for all of my coverage and tons of great photos.

Until then, maybe this Arcade Fire performance from the ACL Fest can hold you over. (Thanks, You Ain't No Picasso.) After posting a recording of Norah Jones covering Arcade Fire last week, I was delighted to discover this version of one of my favorite Yeah Yeah Yeahs songs, "Maps," as interpreted by the Arcade Fire. Regine Chassagne's vocals really play up the heartbreaking beauty; to listen,

Hmmm... maybe it was one of those you-had-to-be-there moments. I love the YYYs and Arcade Fire (they were soooo good last year at ACLFest), but I am NOT feeling this cover at all. I was so sad to miss ACLFest for the first time this year (Bob Dylan for Pete's sake!), but the year of way too many weddings has made me too poor for awesomeness like an ACLFest weekend. waaaah! Can't wait to hear how Treasure Island was, Buzz. Hooray for vicarious living.
