Bloc Party's Banquet

Are you bored with the whole post punk thing? British four piece Bloc Party are here to get you interested again. Their self titled EP got it's US release this week on Dim Mak Records, and it's 6 tracks of searing, spiky guitar riffs and hugely catchy songs. Leadoff track Banquet is a wicked tune, rocking but danceable, a little bit reminiscent of the earliest Cure records. As a bonus cut you get a second version, Banquet (Phones Disco Edit), where the dance factor is cranked up with a lot more disco thump and some whizzing electronics. Fantastic band, great EP.
