Arcade Fire - "Normal Person"

On the most recent episode of the BBC show Later… With Jools Holland, Arcade Fire brought the recent theatrical version of their live show, playing the Reflektor songs “You Already Know” and “Normal Person.” With the geometric stage design and the old-timey dance-rocker stage moves and the deeply ridiculous outfits, the entire spectacle felt vaguely like something from late-’60s French TV that you might catch on YouTube. (Admittedly, RĂ©gine Chassagne’s is a gigantic part of that.) Watch both performances below.

Reflektor is out now on Merge, and I’m not sure I’ve ever heard “Normal Person” sound more like T. Rex than it did right there.
