Bloc Party

Score

Mercury

“My mercury’s in retrograde!” exclaims Kele, continuing to shake off the tweedy trappings of ‘indie rock’. Screeching into the stratosphere where ‘Flux’’s blasters burnt out, this stunning and adventurous new cut from the Bloc is pure grime gristle:

full of elastic drum’n’bass trumpets, sordid tribal scatterbeats, bass and bits that sound like a black hole full of evil circuses.
