That strange sound you heard this morning was probably all of the hipsters (myself included) wetting themselves over the new Arcade Fire track that was released this morning from The Hunger Games soundtrack.
The track is called Abraham’s Daughter and sounds completely different to anything off The Suburbs, or Neon Bible or actually most of the things they’ve released. It’s a bit over dramatic and moody, but that’s why we love them. And since Twilight soundtracks jumped the shark with the latest movie hopefully The Hunger Games continues the trend of teen movies with decent soundtracks. Because let’s face, we need a legitimate excuse to see them.
As a bonus, here’s The Decemberist’s contribution to the soundtrack. Which I think works much better as a stand alone track and easily stands up against their recent output.
