This is violin/fiddle played in the famous "gypsy" (Romani) style. You might try looking up "gypsy violin" or "gypsy fiddle" as a start. This style has been very influential over the years. For a more classical take on it, try Bela Bartok's Romanian Dances or Braham's Hungarian Dances. For a more modern spin, look up "gypsy punk."

Radio stations usually have to pay every time they play a song, or pay for a certain amount of playtime, but also have to pay an initial licensing fee to be able to play the songs at all, so to limit costs they only purchase a small number of song licenses.
People in general want to hear the most popular songs, and want some consistency in their music, so ...
Any band that takes members from multiple previously established bands should always be considered a new band. If Cornell wanted these songs to be Soundgarden songs, he'd have done them with Soundgarden. But, at the same time, when you have a certain writing style which permeated your previous band, you're always going to sound a little like that band.
I do not think so, for several reasons:
1) Rites of Spring songs are usually typical emo/posthardcore songs, I do not see musical similarity to Hey,
2) I doubt Frank Black was familiar with this record. At least I've never came across such an information. Pixies influences are rather well known by now (I recommend reading Doolittle by Ben Sisario).
Sid Viscosity is probably a reference to Sid Vicious (1957-1979), one of the members of the punk rock band the "Sex Pistols". The references to punk continue in the lyrics:
You're not the only one who's doing without
Daddy doctor's son punk rocker shouts
"Dad the A.C.'s broke in our hardcore punk rock vacation
Vacation rehearsal house"
Try Broken Bells - The High Road.
modern but psychedelic-influenced
2 word artist name with longer first name
vaguely similar to "No Tale To Tell"
ambiguity between song and artist name
No weather connection
Not quarter notes in the ...
I found the source of the cover art and its connection to Switzerland. It's a painting by Albert Gantner from 1910, the year when the production and sale of Absinthe was prohibited. I found the painting on the Wikipedia page about Absinthe, in the section where the probihibition in Switzerland is mentioned.
The dead woman in the painting is the fée verte, ...
According to sourced content in Wikipedia, both albums are semi-autobiographical, with the earlier album drawing from all band members' experiences, and the later album centering more closely on the experiences of brothers Win and Will Butler (both members of Arcade Fire).
So from that point of view, I think it's entirely fair to perceive continuity between ...
The song clearly is not just about being literally hungry --not with ample sociopolitical imagery such as "farming babies, while the slaves are all working." But while it may present as an abstract statement about wealth and poverty, a little research reveals a more personal meaning:
"Hunger Strike" came about because of an existential crisis that ...
Frusciante and his lover Toni Oswald were both interested in art, and were fans of the subversive surrealist Marcel Duchamp. They also enjoyed role reversals --dressing up in each other's clothes. The cover of the album is inspired by a self-portrait of Duchamp in drag, as a female alter-ego (anima) named Rrose Selavy. Similarly, John named his female alter-...
As explained in the relevant Wikipedia article:
After three art directors were rejected by the band and pressing was
behind schedule, Green Day asked the help of Chris Bilheimer, a friend
of Armstrong who had done covers for another group signed by Warner
Bros. Records, R.E.M.. Having just the album title to work on,
Bilheimer had some ideas, with ...
Hadouken, Does It Offend, You Yeah? and Modestep seem to fit the bill.
Wikipedia also lists these as similar to Hadouken:

The band plays at the beach, and there are four band members, all male:

The 360 side jump is at 3:38.
The introduction of Down In a Hole is a little a similar to the chord progressions of Cowgirl in the Sand by Neil Young and Horse With No Name by America. The high, held and wordless backing vocal is a little like that of the intro to Gimme Shelter by the Rolling Stones.
