Free Live Track of the Day: 6.15.07

calexico does arcade fire


I'm really glad I stumbled across Arcade Fire's "Intervention EP," which includes an amazing live rendition of "Ocean of Noise" performed by everyone's favorite border town rockers, Calexico. Certainly one of the best songs on Neon Bible, "Ocean of Noise" fits well into the characteristic southwestern sound of Calexico. While the somber mood originally set by Arcade Fire remains in Calexico's rendition, the band adds some of their own flare utilizing vibraphone, trumpet, and mariachi style guitar work at the end. The only question, then, is who does Arcade Fire better? Arcade Fire...or Calexico?

Listen to "Ocean of Noise" Calexico Style (4.9/5)
Listen to Arcade Fire's "Ocean of Noise" live at Judson Memorial Church NYC on 2.16.06 (5/5)
