Every now and again I listen to an album and am literally blown away. It's been a while but last week when I hit play on this very album I was nervous in anticipation for what Bloc Party would deliver. The band played a big part in shaping my taste growing up through my teens. The result when I hit play was astounding, and features a broad mix of sounds but I was particularly knocked a back by the heavy sound some tracks have, particularly "Coliseum" and "We Are Not Good People". RIFF. Check it out on the bands official website in full and please let us know what you think.
Four drops next week on August 20st via Frenchkiss Records. Listen to the album here.
