Another notable performance from last night's airing of Later... with Jools Holland came from the re-energised Bloc Party who recently returned with their stunningly riff heavy album, Four. Although not one of my personal favourites from the album, this live rendition of "So He Begins To Lie" shows the band are back and not pulling any punches in their return. Enjoy the performance at the top and look out for more later in the week.

Alt-J's album An Awesome Wave has honestly been on repeat for month in my house. I can't get enough of it. Last night I was pleased to see them performing in the studios of Later... with Jools Holland for the masses at home. You can check out their performance of "Breezeblocks" at the top courtesy of the BBC. We can also look forward to another track later in the week when the full show is broadcast on Friday.
The band will embark upon a UK tour later in the week and the dates can be seen over here.
Willy Moon has gone from strength to strength this year. He's recently been announced as the support for Jack White in the UK this coming month. Last night he also performed on Later... with Jools Holland which is sure to bring him into the consciousness of the masses watching at home. He performed his single from earlier in the year, "Yeah Yeah". Catch the dapper man dancing and performing at the top. He owns the entire studio! It's a truly great show from a rising star.
We've seen performances from Muse, Sharon Van Etten, Jessie Ware, Mumford & Sons and The xx so far this year on Later... with Jools Holland. Last night Grizzly Bear were one of the bands in the circular studio performing on the first airing of the show. They laid down a rendition of "Yet Again" from their new album Shields and you can re-watch the performance at the top. Check back at the weekend for another track from the band following the full broadcast on Friday evening.
As well as that performance from Jessie Ware that we saw not too long ago on Later... with Jools Holland, we also got to see Sharon Van Etten return to the television screens for the first time since way back at the start of the year. She performed her track "Serpents" with the help of her band and you can watch it at the top. Nice use of an Ebow at the start of the track. Always fun to play around with those.
If you missed previous performances from Jools this year, jump over here.
This week on Later... with Jools Holland we get to enjoy the wonderful Jessie Ware performing her incredibly infectious single "Wildest Moments". Enticing the audience in the studio as well at home, you can re-live the understated performance at the top. Her live voice is incredible.
Her debut album, Devotion, is out now.
Last week we got to enjoy performances from The xx and Muse on the first show in the new series of Later... with Jools Holland. Last night on week two's show the chart topping Mumford & Sons were in the studio to perform their track "Whispers in the Dark". Check it out at the top and if you're not one of the hundreds of thousands to already do so, you can pick up their new album Babel over here.
