Arcade Fire once again prove that they are a band capable of slipping away from the public glare, only to re-emerge with a new album that puts them right back in the spotlight.

Featuring backing vocals by musical chameleon David Bowie, who himself is well versed in the art of attack and sustain and produced by one time LCD Soundsystem stalwart James Murphy, Reflektor is the Canadian group’s latest release and it is a carnivalesque corker!

Replacing Arctic Monkeys, Parquet Courts and Haim as my go to album, the Tears for Fears glam rock stomp of Joan of Arc is the standout.
