Arcade Fire for Peter Gabriel
“You do one of mine and I’ll do one of yours” Peter Gabriel speaks.
This is the mood of a two-steps project – Scratch My Back (2010) – And I’ll Scratch Yours (2013) – a series of song exchanges in which he and other leading artists reinterpret each other’s songs.
In 2010, Peter Gabriel covered a bunch of contemporary bands, three years later the collective gives him back the favor reinterpreting his gems. And I’ll Scratch Yours sounds like a kindly echo.
Here is the Arcade Fire’s cover Games Without Frontiers...big drums, synth and echoes for giving the flavor of the intensity of this work. Brian Eno, Regina Spektor, Bon Iver are only representative names of what/who you can find over in it.
