A lot of people seem to really enjoy this Bloc Party band. I am not one of them. I have never really been able to pinpoint what it is that I dislike, but I have listened to plenty of their music and seen them perform live, and none of it has ever clicked for me. If your affection runs deeper than mine, then you will be happy to hear that the release date for Bloc Party’s new single, "Mercury," is coming up on August 11th.
The single includes remixes from CSS (who'll be in town for the ACL Festival), and Flosstradamus (who held it down properly at Mohawk a few weeks ago), and some fella by the name of Hervé. If this is your bag, baby, you can pre-order the single right now at the link.
