This week brought new tracks by Bloc Party, The Killers, and Band of Horses. These are 3 of my favorite bands of this decade and any new album release comes with much anticipation. If Bloc Party's forthcoming album is anything like the first single “Octopus”, it'll surely make my top ten list.
The Killers' “Runaways” was typically anthemic but didn't grab me on first hearing it. And Band of Horses' “Knock, Knock” shows off a different, more aggressive sound for a band that has a somewhat Americana style.
Listen below to all three. Bloc Party's “Octopus” is by far my favorite and my Song of the Week”.
