I know I have been away for too long but I do have some wonderful music to offer you…What has been sparking my interest this past week? Well let’s see…

Bloc Party’s Weekend in the City was officially released this past Tuesday and I immediately noticed Okereke’s apparent lyrical growth. The lyrics of songs like “Waiting for the 7:18” and “I Still Remember” are much more expressive in a strikingly direct way. “I Still Remember” recalls an attraction of two schoolboys with such an eloquent tenderness:

And on that teachers’ training day
We wrote our names on every train
Laughed at the people off to work
So monochrome and so lukewarm…
I Still Remember, Bloc Party

It is hard to deny that Bloc Party has demonstrated their growth and experience by giving us an album that retains the same energetic post-punk Bloc Party we have come to love and combines it with an emotional intimacy, which has created a connection that resonates in the listeners mind. Get it here.
