Okay so I don’t think any of the music in the trailer is from Arcade Fire, but they’re doing the score for this movie. Cool? Cool.

3342772773_b55d202db7_oMerge Records is celebrating it’s 20th anniversary in style, releasing a whole bunch of stuff. One awesome thing is a cd Score! of bands covering Merge bands’ songs. There are some really great ones on there, and some just so-so. Here’s two I liked.

♫ Apples in Stereo – King of Carrot Flower 3 (Neutral Milk Hotel cover)

♫ Times New Viking – Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels)(Arcade Fire cover)
