Tomorrow night, Bloc Party celebrate their reunion and album, Four, with a headlining show at London’s massive Earl Courts. LA’s Jerome LOL has remixed the band’s current single, “Truth,” for the occasion, teasing out its minimal pluck and plaintive I am yours now refrain for six-minutes. Like LOL’s recent set of diptych songs (“Happy/Sad,” “Awake/Asleep,” “Forever/Never”) the remix is a study in subtle contrast, its first half plodding and patient, its conclusion impassioned and agitated. Stream the remix and watch the original’s official video below, then revisit FADER’s 2005 Bloc Party cover story.
