DOWNLOAD: The Drums - We Used To Wait (Arcade Fire Cover)
The Drums and Arcade Fire are both prone to sudden, melodramatic fits, even if, generally speaking, the former's seem to be provoked by trials of youth and the latter's by the onset of adulthood.

The effort's an outtake from a BBC Live Lounge session recorded with Huw Stephens at last weekend's Reading Festival—hear the whole thing here.
