ARCADE FIRE
Los Angeles 2013 [no label, 1CD]

Live at Capitol Studios, Los Angeles, CA; October 28, 2013. Excellent FM broadcast.

As if they really needed it, the Canadian Arcade Fire got an extra buzz in the news when it was announced that David Bowie was guesting on the title track of their new album, Reflektor (which was released on October 28). This was a “secret show” and “fans in the area had to either get creative with GIFs or costumes to snag a ticket”.

Laura Barton of The Guardian wrote:

…Reflektor, a double album that has already startled many who have heard it, with its sheen and its unabashed splendour: there are shades of Studio 54, of disco and glam rock, as well as Talking Heads, Blondie and ska. There is the obvious influence of David Bowie, who guests on one of the new songs, and of LCD Soundsystem, whose James Murphy produced the record, along with the band’s long-time collaborator Markus Dravs. And beneath it all, lyrics that speak darkly of a relationship in disarray, of disappointment and disillusionment and sudden flares of hope; of falling apart and coming back together, of two lives that can never quite unravel. “And now you’re older, Butler sings on one track, “you will discover, it’s never over.”

Thanks to tamlyn who recorded and shared these tracks at Dime.

  2. you know for a country with a relatively small population , Canada seems have an extraordinary amount of talented musicians . I think its the maple syrup and hockey that does it.
    just kidding , glad to see these kids doing well.

  3. More likely it’s the national health care system.

    By Innocent Bystander on Nov 2, 2013

  4. the national health care system is responsible for the country having talented musicians? huh? do u know that they often have to wait 3-6 months to get seen for minor things or sometimes even more important things? many of them come here to get seen by our doctors because of this.

  5. you know it all dr. darth,lol.Case closed.

  6. I guess if that’s what FOX and right wing talk radio tell you, it must be true, darth. I’ve never heard anything like that from the actual Canadians I know.

  10. darth, you hoser, stop lying about Canada’s health care system, eh? You don’t know anything, you must have had a Molson with a mouse in it you idiot. Stop binging on back bacon. I ever see you, you’re getting an elbow in the throat. Take off, eh?

    By Gordie Howe on Nov 2, 2013

  11. We don’t have a ‘national health care system’. We have 10 provincial and 3 territorial systems available to all Canadians across the nation. Learn how what the fuck you’re taking about works before you start making up bullshit about how it doesn’t work.

  12. How did a posting of Arcade Fire turn into a squabble about Canadian healthcare?
    The British NHS is being sold off by the pound and politicians conspiring to make their own devious points at it’s expense whilst the rest of us in need of healthcare wait in line as per . . . . but what about . . . . .

    Arcade Fire? I don’t really know them! Any good? worth a punt?

    love peace and understanding

    God you are such an embarrassment son.How I wish I had never met your mother

    By Innocent Bystander's Dad on Nov 2, 2013

  19. dont blame me for things i didnt say. look carefully at the 2nd posting above. then look very very carefully at the first line i typed and the fact that theres a question mark at the end of the first line. then notice that i say ‘huh?’ after that. i am not suggesting that canada has a national health care system. i am questioning that this supposed ‘national health care system’ that some idiot who posted above my posting where i questioned it.. says is responsible for the talent coming out of that country. i dont know why it became so difficult for any of u to follow the conversation and what was actually being said.
    i didnt say anything about there being a national health care system. i dont understand how anyone would suggest that there being one could possibly be cause for talent coming out of such a lacking in population country.

    please people.. before u react in a knee jerk type of response showing how ridiculously stupid u all are.. try to learn to read. and stop using other peoples id’s. man up!!

  28. “The Easybeats were an Australian rock band. They formed in Sydney in late 1964 and disbanded at the end of 1969. They are regarded as the greatest Australian pop band of the 1960s, echoing The Beatles’ success in Britain, and were the first Australian rock and roll act to score an international pop hit with their 1966 single “Friday on My Mind”.”

  31. i didnt post that crap about australia. that entire posting wasnt mine

    By darth on Nov 5, 2013

  32. duke - no one cares how mad u get. no one is going to cater to u here. if u dont like something someone says thats fine. ppl have the right to post comments even if things they say upset u. however they dont have the right to post using other peoples id’s. much of what u see posted isnt necessarily by the person whose name u see under it. i dont usually post things that im not sure about. everyone makes mistakes. theres nothing i could say about australia that u should become mad about.
    the idiot who posted that stupidity about toilet water and the real world like the usa is obviously an idiot. why the hell isnt australia part of the real world? i have loved many bands from australia. so i would have never posted that stupidity. i also dont use caps like the moron who tried to post using my id. midnight oil acdc men at work air supply crowded house divinyls icehouse little river band and a few others that most ppl have never heard of since im into progressive rock and psychedelic rock and space music. in fact i can actually name 400 australian bands that have all released material commercially.. but i digress.

  36. darth, you hoser, stop lying about Canada’s health care system, eh? You don’t know anything, you must have had a Molson with a mouse in it you idiot. Stop binging on back bacon. I ever see you, you’re getting an elbow in the throat. Take off, eh?

    now,now…darth happens to be right so get used to it.And come around me and you’ll find a hockey stick rammed up your crease.Case closed.

  37. “in fact i can actually name 400 australian bands that have all released material commercially.. ”

    do it. do it right now.

    By barth on Nov 5, 2013

  38. again - pay attention here.. i didnt say anything about canada’s health care system. i also didnt lie about it since i didnt say anything about it. try to keep up here. this isnt rocket science now. u dont know what i know. u are assuming. i didnt claim to know anything on this subject but i did ask a question showing that the person prior to me who suggested that the supposed health care system there could possibly be responsible for the talent emerging from that country. as i said.. read the posting slower and more carefully. look at what i typed. stop reacting in a knee jerk fashion so quickly.
    there is a question mark on the first line!!!
    nothing i said in my posting makes me an idiot. i dont know what ‘binging on back bacon’ means. threatening me is ridiculous.

    By darth on Nov 5, 2013

  39. Shut up, darth! Nobody wants to read your paragraphs of idiocy!

    By InnocentBystander on Nov 5, 2013

  40. “i didnt say anything about canada’s health care system.”

    yes u did when u said: “do u know that they often have to wait 3-6 months to get seen for minor things or sometimes even more important things? many of them come here to get seen by our doctors because of this.”

    again u lie and this article shows that you’re wrong: http://tinyurl.com/kaduf4s

  41. barth, you know he won`t admit it.
    He has this amazing ability to ignore the posts that show him to be wrong.

    By sluggo on Nov 5, 2013

  42. sluggo, he should take his own advice and “man up!!” it looks like he ignored mr. raoul duke’s post above also: “…Learn how what the fuck you’re taking about works before you start making up bullshit about how it doesn’t work.”

    By barth on Nov 5, 2013

  43. aww, he baits us. Its becoming more obvious, he lays low for a few days, comes back with a few ridiculous posts , waits for the inevitable word war,sates his silly idiosyncrasies and then disappears again.
    I mean can anyone possibly be this idiotic and without humility?

    it must be almost time for his weekly television update! yawn…

    By sluggo on Nov 5, 2013

  44. true dat sluggo. he doesnt remember dylans victorias secret tv commercial but darthkards searches youtube for hot babe videos…. highly dubious!

    By barth on Nov 5, 2013

  45. Darth says…”again pay attention here.. i didnt say anything about canada’s health care system. i also didnt lie about it since i didnt say anything about it. try to keep up here. this isnt rocket science now.”

    and here is his post that he claims he didn`t make.

    “..the national health care system is responsible for the country having talented musicians? huh? do u know that they often have to wait 3-6 months to get seen for minor things or sometimes even more important things? many of them come here to get seen by our doctors because of this.”
