Arcade Fire’s Win Butler Is A Jock

Arcade Fire

Arcade Fire

I know. So many of you pasty, flabby indie kids must be completely gutted about this.

But you know what? A couple push-ups would probably be good for you, and get you away from posting ironic shit on tumblr.

Colin’s Stetson’s Pain In The Face

Most people had no idea who saxophonist to the indie stars Colin Stetson was about six months ago. But then he put out the album New History Warfare Vol. 2: Judges, got nominated for the Polaris Music Prize short list, and everyone started to figure out that he’s worked with the likes of Arcade Fire, Timber Timbre, Lou Reed, David Byrne and TV On The Radio.

So it made total sense that Aaron would ask him about working out. You can read how their conversation went at Spinner Canada by clicking here.
