Late Of The Pier – Fantasy Black Channel

September 10, 2008

Current contenders for my favourite new/emerging British band of the year so far…

(I have to keep conjuring up these categories, it gives my life some pretentious level of order & meaning. Leave me.)

The Nottinghamshire four-piece have aligned themselves with Erol Alkan for the entire debut. It’s borderline bonkers. Or atleast better than the Mystery Jet’s album.

Bloc Party – Mercury

August 29, 2008

Shizer. Meant to do this 19 days ago.

The brand spanking (19 day old) single from my favourite British band of the last 5 years (‘Silent Alarm’ was an under-rated Indie classic) warrants a sporadic post.

I’ve always loved the climactic temprement of their song structures with ‘Mercury’ showing further advancement into 21st century New Wave as perhaps the precursor to a more experimental third album (‘Intimacy’ arriving late October). Here garage-rock riffs submit to a livid carnival of uber-Grime electronics making Kele’s brazen, banshee, rebel-cry knife both the stuttering arrangement, and listener. He’s still one of the most distinct, enlivening Indie-Rock vocalists this country’s produced in a long time, and no I’m not just saying that because I’m all pro-ethnic n’ shit, christ.

(Go brown man go.)
