Daily SAll-Star: Bloc Party
Bloc Party is a band.
Coming out of London, Bloc Party has released two albums, Silent Alarm in 2005 and A Weekend in the City in 2007 on two indie labels (Wichita in the UK, Vice in the US). Both have received high marks from anybody and everybody who has bothered to review them. This is for one simple reason: they're awesome.
All very talented at their instruments and creating a unique sound, Kele Okereke (vocals and rhythm guitar), Russell Lissack (lead guitar), Gordon Moakes (bass and backing vocals), and Matt Tong (drums) are scheduled to release another album some time in the next year. I anticipate it greatly.
