Bloc Party: C/D?

Message Bookmarked
Bookmark Removed
Fluxblog turned me onto Bloc Party a couple months ago with an mp3 from the first single, and I've just heard the songs from the new "Banquet/Staying Fat" single along with some loose tracks from the Lamacq session (notably "Little Thoughts").

I'm completely sold. Apparently, there's going to be two more singles this year with a full-length to follow next January.

Classic or dud? Or too early to judge?

Saw them at Eat your own ears a month or two back in Islington, and thought they were possibly one of the worst things I've ever had the misfortune to hear

Having said that I also heard the track on Fluxblog and thought it was OK, so probably too early to judge

*how* good is 'banquet'. it's really 1983 though isn't it?

i like the single lots, moshi moshi printing up only 2000 copies was madness, they could have really paid the office rental if they had pressed up more with. whether they can maintain the vibe while they record the album this summer will be interesting (esp as the world will no doubt have moved on from the current gang of four revival thing). i am now very fed up with Franz Ferdy. and worried that this lot could fall into the same type of trap of overexposure.

Those of us in the States will be treated to a compilation cd of the first two singles and a couple more tracks this September when Dim Mak brings Bloc Party across the pond. I can barely wait.

Franz who?

i like the compilation of the two singles. at times they seem a bit like a low-rent Ikara Colt but i think they've got a bit more depth. was very surprised to see the debut 45 go for obscene amounts on ebay recently, find it difficult to imagine them as the sort of band who would attract obsessive fans..

this b ep I just listened to is a total dud. a crap post rock type song and a crap ambient type song, but that Banquet track is alright, I guess.

seem to be pretentious assholes too, "Suffice to say there would be no band without the efforts of guitar bands formed in British and American towns in the 70s, 80s and 90s, aswell as visionary writers and artists of various kinds whose work has informed the world and culture itself as it stands. The precise names are as good as any you can come up with, in fact probably much, much better."

The latest shizzle:

Little Thoughts EP, which contains everything they've released since the first EP (sans "Always New Depths" for some reason), will be out in Japan on 1 Dec and in the US on 25 Jan... haven't found anything for a UK/Europe date.

Silent Alarm LP will be out on Wichita in the UK and on V2 in Europe/Japan on 14 Feb and on Vice/Atlantic in the US on 20 Mar (vinyl on Dim Mak same day).

WFMU studio set here (begins approx. 5:20 into stream).

This album definately changes with further listens. When I first heard the band I love Little Thoughts and on the album initially I liked the old singles, Banquets and She's Hearing Voices. But now my favourites are Positive Tension (I hated it originally) and Price of Gas. The ballads on it are still rubbish though

Not really like a complete removal of anal area more a cleansing of the sphincter hopefully washing away some nasty congealed Babyshambles from the particularly nasty stomach upset that was The Libertines's reign of terror but The Bravery look like being some kind of rear guard action butt plugging device designed to keep it all in.

Hmm...now that I'm finally hearing them, I proclaim to be very like Moving Units in my mind, which is no bad thing. It is of a 'type' currently current, to be sure, but it works well enough. Some Cure/Smiths/etc. bands are better than others...

This album is all about the drums. Put a song like 'So Here We Are' in the hands of, say, Snow Patrol or Coldplay and they wouldn't really know what to do with it other than just making the guitars louder and louder. Here they build the momentum just by making the rhythms more and more complex so the guitars can carry on doing that great shimmery thing and the effect is *so much* better.

Yeah, Tong's drumming was one of the main reasons I became so enthusiastic about this band circa Silent Alarm. I recall hearing 'So Here We Are' for the first time, and thought that it was wonderful how the intro suggested that the track was going to be a certain way rhythmically, and then the drums kicked in and immediately changed the vibe of the whole track. I haven't listened to 'So Here We Are' for a long while, but just thinking about it, and then comparing it to that new track posted above, the gulf in quality between the two is beyond vast.

'Fortress' may just be one of Kele's most cringeworthy set of lyrics to date...

These sheets of ours shield our bodies like a fortress
They keep us safe from harm
Intertwined, our bodies lay there like a comma
The arch of your back invites desire
We put our bodies to the test
Follow the curve right down your neck
Your sweet, my sweat stuck in a web
And in the mirror, you relent
It's teasing me with every step
Reach down and feel how strong my love grows just for you

Pull me under, under the ocean
Cover my mouth with yours
Put it on me like no one's watching
Like it's the first time
And on the street, our bodies ache for one another
I just can't wait 'til we're alone, mmm mmm

And I'm a fool for the sight of all the gold between your thights
You still the sea that's stirring deep in me
Make your base right here, next to me
As our notes blend in harmony
And when we sex, we hear the beat
And it's so serene

Pull me under, under the ocean
Cover my mouth with yours
Put it on me like no one's watching
Like it's the first time
And if you're hungry, devour your morsel
Cover my mouth with yours
Put it one me like no one's watching
Like it's the first time
Pull me under, under the ocean
Cover my mouth with yours
Put it on me like no one's watching
Like it's the first time we kissed

This fennel tea that you bought for me
Well, it does its magic discretely
I wrote this song for you, it's true
In our only south facing room
See, I don't know what the future holds
But I hope we face it together
Cause rock and roll has got so old
Just give me neo-soul

[Chorus]
Into the earth, our bodies will go
We got to keep it all fluid
Into the earth, our bodies will go
You're gonna keep me good-looking

[Verse 2]
You've seen the colour of my cash
Does it not impress? Was I way too flash?
Are you backing away
From me?
Calm down, Yoshi, the fungi
Is helping this fun-guy deliver
When I get high, I dance all night
I'll sing you Al Green songs
I'm just trying to gently blur the lines
With my trusty sensimilia
Don't be so jaded or so coy
When you could just be familiar

Shirtless and faded on the Champs-Élysées
The world was ours then
I had conviction, but you, you had style
Such a lethal combination
The years changed us, the money weighed us down
We lost our way
Let me spoil you, pick a place to go
I want to spend my money on you

And don't you remember
How this began?
You begged me for a chance
Don't waste your sorry
No, don't waste your goodbyes
Tonight
From hand to mouth and now
We're living lux

I order the lobster, and you, the Moët
The waitress thinks that we can't pay, no
What does she know? Our pockets are full-grown
And we've earned the right to fine dine
So raise your glass, my old friend
For we both know that this is the end
For the times we fought and the times we shared
I'll sing you a song the way I used to then

Don't you remember
How this began?
You begged me for a chance
Don't waste your sorry
No, don't waste your goodbyes
Tonight
From hand to mouth and now
We're living lux
We're living lux

It was bad enough when he stole an unreleased Richey Manic line for 'Where Is Home?'

I'm on track three and it's like this is supposed to be some sort of Jamie Woon-James Blake coffee table dubsoul thing, but he doesn't have voice of the former and the even rudimentary production skills of the latter.

Fourth track is the sort of clumpy midpaced twangy rocker that you expect from bands with no ideas left.

Different Drugs is actually... pretty good, in that I've not found myself immediately compelled to turn it off. Would be way better with Katy or Jessie singing it obviously, and sometimes you really do need to ditch the drummer. I like the bit where he sings "do you still think of me fondly?" like he's addressing some maiden aunt he never really sees.

he sounded like hes been having a bit of an ongoing personal/identity crisis in that NME interview, which might be related to his new beefiness.

fortress is good actually. prob his best, most tender singing on this album from what ive heard so far (im not really listening to the lyrics, which might help). its a tiny bit like fka twigs' closer. is his solo stuff like this? i think i might like it more than the BP album if so.

Any thoughts on Kele's _Fatherland_? Has a real nice streak from tracks 6-10 (less 7). "Yemaya", track 6, has a Shack musical vibe that I love, but it's also very much the album's highpoint for me, though the track with Corinne Bailey Rae (# 8, "Versions of Us") is lovely.
