Trampled By Turtles cover The Arcade Fire

I am going to let you in on a little HearYa secret. Sometimes when we get new music, I will remark to Oz that such and such band’s new song is giving me a Chubberoo. A Chubberoo is defined as a boner brought forth by great musical excitement. We’re still awaiting word from Webster’s if it will be added into this year’s dictionary. If nothing else, it is part of our lexicon. Either way, this is one of those times that I got a Chubberoo.

For those not in the know The AV Club has a great weekly series called Undercover where they invite bands to come in and perform a cover off a list of 25 songs.

When Trampled By Turtles were in town a few weeks back, they tweeted a pic of the famed round room at The AV Club. I emailed their manager Geoff to ask what they played. He emailed back that is was Rebellion (Lies). While I am far from the biggest Arcade Fire fan, I do love that song.

They played it that night at The Metro and I damn near wet my pants in excitement. In case you have not seen it for yourself, I am now giving you the opportunity to ruin a perfectly good pair of undies. I have watched this a couple of dozen times and am flat out amazed every single time. This is the year of the Turtles. Jump on board.

Chubberoo always has a capital C for some reason.

Wow, I love hearing when a band discovers a “signature” cover, not saying these guys could not kill other songs, but you just get that feeling when it all clicks.
