Benn away a month. Sorry about that. But I’ve been listening to what’s out there.
Best of the week goes to this new Bloc Party track. Four came out on Tuesday, and while over all I was less than blown away, the track V.A.L.I.S. is by far the best song they’ve done since Hunting for Witches on Weekend In The City, and very much in the vein of This Modern Love. It’s light, melodic, catchy chorus, and understated. A fair contrast to what the majority of this new disc is. I’m not saying it’s terrible. But this is a certain bright spot among the dirg and thrash that makes up many of the other tracks.
Great late summer track. Love this.
For a bit of comparison, Hunting…
And This Modern Love.
