Audio: Bloc Party, "Mercury"

Sometimes we give an artist his/her/their first cover thinking he/she/them will be the biggest artists in the world someday, sometimes we just think they are great right at that particular moment. To wit, the above split of Kano and Bloc Party from F29. Now we're not saying they both couldn't make spectacular comebacks and recapture what made us put them on in the first place, but Kano has a lot of ground to recover and this new Bloc Party single, "Mercury", debuted on Zane Lowe's BBC1 show today, isn't exactly vintage BP. Still, at least they aren't resting on their post-punk/nu wave/disco-punk (or whatever people were calling it in 2006) laurels, and hey, who doesn't love them some astrology?
