Bloc Party: A Weekend In the City

Well, Bloc Party’s album officially comes out tomorrow. But come on, I’ve had it for like MONTHS already. I’ve seen almost no promotion in the US. Which is typical. US wouldn’t know good taste if it dropped bombs on it. Pitchfork thinks it’s okay, but I don’t listen to them much anymore anyway. I forget where I read it, but Kele mentioned that the songs “Song for Clay (Disappear Here)” was inspired by Bret Easton Ellis’ novels. O really? That is pretty awesome. Except that, inspiring a whole album about them? The characters are extremely shallow and one-dimensional, and that is for the purpose of the social commentary. So I don’t know if deep lyrics are even possible. But, kudos for having a cool inspiration. I can’t BELIEVE I didn’t catch it. Clay is the main character in Less Than Zero and “Disappear Here” is a significant line from American Psycho. And I call it my favorite novel? I should be ashamed I didn’t pick up on it. Back on track, here’s the album. I think it is fantastic.
