Song Of The Week (Sort Of) - Arcade Fire Make A Movie! Rejoice!!
There comes a point in your life when you think you’ll never find another great band. And then Arcade Fire come along.
The Reflektor Tapes opens this September (very stealthily just announced) and we here at lastword can’t wait. We saw the guys on that tour last year (and many times previous) and have an almost desperate need for more of what may well be the finest pop band in the world at this very moment (and don’t balk at our use of the word “pop” – we’re right!)
Hence this week, we’re subverting the usual format of Song of the Week to bring you a brief trailer for their first movie, The Reflektor Tapes, and an extended trailer for same. which sort of doubles as a promo for the song Porno from that album. (And if that wasn’t enough – bonus track below.) Just bask!
And just to add to the fun - and the traditional Song Of The Week movie connection - here's Spike Jonze' take on what may well have been that album's finest moment, Afterlife (with added Greta Gerwig)
The Reflecktor Tapes opens in the US at least on September 24
