Late to the (Bloc) Party
As I've been too busy for a real life the past two years, I haven't been keeping up as well as I might have on all the pitchfork/stereogum bands. But I know that a few years ago, the kids were really into Bloc Party. I have a Bloc Party song on my iPod, from when I paid for a Salon.com premium membership (which comes with exclusive MP3s on the audiophile blog). I never really listened to it, content to obsess over what I already like. But I just realized that I've been listening to the one Bloc Party song for a while, and thinking it was some new-fangled Wedding Present song that somehow made it onto my playlist. Is that good or bad for Bloc Party?
