Remix Roundup 4/2: Bright Eyes, Bloc Party, & Timbaland

It’s Monday again, and you know what that means: more remixes! They’re all pretty decent, but my personal favorite of the bunch is the Appogee remix of Bright Eye’s Lover I Don’t Have To Love. It keeps the best parts of the original, while adding an extra dose of electro. Enjoy!

Bloc Party: A Weekend In The City

February 4, 2007 at 5:37 pm (A Weekend In The City, Bloc Party, mp3s, Reviews)

One of the first things that strikes you about Bloc Party’s A Weekend In The City upon your first listen is the change in tone from Silent Alarm. Where Silent Alarm was brash and aggressive art-punk, A Weekend In The City is introverted and quietly angry pop. While there are a few tracks that are reminiscent of Silent Alarm (The Prayer, Hunting For Witches), A Weekend In The City presents, for the most part, a barely recognizable Bloc Party.

However, the result is an album far deeper than their debut, though not as immediately catchy. The themes are dark, such as depression, racism, suicide, homosexuality, terrorism, and government propaganda. Such a dark album will surely shock those waiting for Silent Alarm 2. Fans will grapple with this album. In the end, A Weekend In The City trumps it’s predecessor, particularly in intelligence, though it remains to be seen whether or not it will be accepted for what it is.
