Return of the Mac

Arcade Fire's new song, the title track from the October-released fourth LP Reflektor, is a suitably big affair; it prompted Pitchfork to quip that it's so epic, it has two videos – one a monochrome effort directed by Anton Corbijn (youtu.be/7E0fVfectDo), the other an interactive extravaganza (justareflektor.com). The song itself is a bouncy number, with dance-like textures that may in part be a result of James Murphy being in the production booth. David Bowie is on backing vocals, which is nice.

Currently revealing the secrets of his success on a fascinating BBC2 series about songwriting, Guy Chambers here ventures beyond his mainstream pop comfort-zone on a four-track EP made with breathy chanteuse Sophie Hunter, with whom he previously worked on a French-language album, she playing the Jane Birkin to his Serge Gainsbourg.

Swedish indie-popstrel Lykke Li has been setting blogs abuzz with a new single, and at this sold-out gig, excitement fizzes through the crowd during a slow build, as Li stands with her back to us, swathed in a black cape. Opening with an infectious new track, "Youth", she writhes around the stage, all long hair and long legs, tassels flying from her leather shorts as she dances. As with many of the current swathe of young electro-pop artists, it seems as much about the performance as the music.
