It was in '08, right? I think the last time I saw them was April '09. They toured the rest of that year and then they went on hiatus end of October '09. I think they had a show on or around Halloween of that year and that was their last show for over two and half years.

I don't know what it says about me that I more immediately thought of Tron when I saw that cover.

So Amazon "leaked" the first single.

I think it's alright but not all that special. Luckily it's better than Mercury and One Month Off.

I'm liking it more and more after every listen.

It's no Banquet but it's quite good.

Oh, man.

Playful vocals, catchy, and that guitar solo towards the end just smokes.

Also, I couldn't help but be reminded of "Myxomatosis" during that one bit.

The "I don't....know why....I feel....etc." part. I kept wanting Kele to say tongue tied. Anyway, good stuff.

Is this it? That link above is dead.

Bloc Party - Octopus (Single 2012) - YouTube

Pretty good. Definitely sounds like a bit of a return to the guitar and not much at all like Intimacy.

Listened to it two times in a row. Didn't like it much the first listen, but enjoyed it a decent amount the second time. Not exactly the type of track I was hoping for, but it's still cool. I can see myself liking it more and more (which seems to happen with each of their lead singles for me).

I don't care for the video though.

I like the video, especially the beginning. The colours are cheesy though.

And man, I've already said it but I'll say it again. This song keeps getting better. I love it now. I'm such a Bloc Party fanboy.
