Two tracks for the fans! Arcade Fire offer up two outtakes from the recording sessions for Reflektor. We've heard "Get Right" before, performed live and as part of the commercial the band released for Reflektor. It's a bluesy piece that sounds closer to modern indie rock than the inventive material that Arcade Fire have staked their claim with. That is all well and good, as the band pull it off with their usual aplomb. The flip side will warm the hearts of long time fans of the band. Its gently plucked guitar hearkens back to the band's humble beginnings, when Win Butler was playing grimy stages in Denver and Régine Chassagne was singing in Quebeçois at Rock en Seine. These two cuts may not have fit with the rest of Reflektor, but they pair so well together.
