Dear Reader

Dear reader, I bet that you, like me, have never heard of Trampled by Turtles before. You may find their beards and flannel provide fodder for you to make jokes and generalize about hipster bands. You may suspect that two or more of the musicians in this band have a home distilling and/or cold brew operation to earn a little scratch on the side. But please acknowledge that Arcade Fire's "Rebellion (Lies)" is a difficult song to cover, and they pulled it off with aplomb and panache. Because this is awesome:
Trampled By Turtles covers Arcade Fire

For once I get to play the role of the snarky hipster -- I've known of them for some time! They are from Minnesota, and they get played on "The Current" (MPR) all the time!
