    Somewhat underrated, incredibly good bands. Anyone else listen to them?

    Bloc Party's doing a new album for this year, and TVOTR released Nine Types of Light around this time of year last year.

    I suspect any hardcore Bloc Party fans would probably consider me a bit mainstream for saying this, but "I Still Remember" from "A Weekend In The City" is one of my all time favourite songs. I do listen to and like some of their other stuff too.

    That's probably the equivalent of someone saying "Oh yeh, I quite like Linkin Park, they have that song called 'Numb' that I really like" but there ya go :p

    I listened to some random TVOTR songs. Never really went back to them, though I kinda want to.

    Mind posting some of their best songs?

    I believe their music is pure gold.

    i frigging adore Bloc Party. IMO one of THE best British Bands. Their Sound is so unique and interesting. Look at the 3 Albums so far: They all sound different. I`m really excited for the new Album, which is hopefully coming this Summer. A Tour is also planned, Festivals as well (e.g. Open'er Festival in Poland, which i`m attending third year in a row). Love 'em.

    Bloc party is one of the greatest bands ever, seriously. I think a lot of people overlook A Weekend in The City, there are some absolutely great tracks on there besides Hunting for Witches and Song for Clay etc. Take a look at Uniform and Sunday (especially from 3:35 onwards, probably one of the greatest moments in Bloc Party's music.) I also think Compliments is one of their greatest songs ever, even though the lyrics are literally less then a paragraph.

    Indeed, Compliments is a damn fine song. Couldn't have been anything other than a closer because of its dark tone and lyrics. They reflect much of a our current society.

    Sorry for the semi-bump, and its 6 days late, but Bloc Party are releasing a new album "four" this year in August.
    Trailer here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s4M5EqOGsMA

    Sounds pretty good to me. I haven't actually listened to Intimacy in full yet, but this seems to going back to their guitar roots a little bit while having some pretty awesome strings in that song at the end.

    Missed this thread the first time. Anyway, that Bloc Party trailer sounds really promising. I've been meaning to give Intimacy another go, as I didn't pay much attention to it when it came out.

    I used to be a pretty big Bloc Party fan, and I suppose I still am a fan in some capacity, but after listening to their discography endlessly on repeat before seeing them in concert in 2008, they began to grate on me. I haven't gone out of my way to listen to them in years.

    TVOTR, I don't know. Might check them out.

    ^ Yeah, Kele's vocals are like.. wow. The vocal interplay between Kele and Gordon before that bit is awesome too.

    I seriously did not understand a thing you said. 'TV on the Radio' is a band and this thread isn't about watching TV.

    Edit: On topic, Bloc Party's album can be listened to online in full here: http://four.blocparty.com/#interactive
