Recap: Arcade Fire – ‘Reflektor Tour’ Chicago

posted by Oscar August 28, 2014

Those of you that have seen the Arcade Fire during their current Reflektor Tour are some of the lucky few to witness a band put on a show that cements their place among the top acts in the world today.

Video: Arcade Fire – “Normal Person” Lollapalooza Argentina 2014 (Crashed by Julian Casablancas)

posted by Oscar April 1, 2014

Lollapalooza Argentina saw the Arcade Fire headline one its nights this year and at the Canadian band’s opening their set was briefly interrupted by someone walking onstage with a Win Butler bobble-head.

Let me start out by saying that this is one of the best albums of the year. Simple as that.

All the hype surrounding Reflektor prior to its release focused on it being an album chock-full of “danceable” tracks that would make Arcade Fire better suited for a club filled with disco balls and mini skirts rather than denim-clad, band T-shirt-wearing fans. It’s not. Instead, it’s a collection of artful tracks that take elements from genres like Disco, Caribbean music and even Hip Hop to help make the double LP a new “classic.” Continue Reading
