mp3s - Bloc Party



Bloc Party is going to hit it huge in the U.S. this year, with their upcoming album. But you don't care about that, do you? You are a purist, and will judge a single based on the music alone. You play an instrument, and know what a pedal point is and how it lends gravitas to Radiohead's Street Spirit, and why it does the same for This Modern Love, below. Hackneyed, facile lyrics make you cringe to any song, no matter how well sung. You know the importance of having the right drummer, and how the whole chemistry dissolves when you lose him or her. You don't care what color belt the lead singer wears. He, or she, for that matter, could look like any one of the Wiggles and it wouldn't bother you a bit. You like smart, original songs played well. You want the guitar to make you rise and the beat to move you. That's why you like Bloc Party. Not because they're going to hit it HUGE in the U.S. this year.

I think I love them already. I've been putting stuff from their EP on like every single mixtape I've made since I got it. They're grand.
