Bloc Party's Silent Alarm will always be my favourite indie rock album in the whole world. Yeah, that record is mind-blowing! Anyhow - lets come back in 2013. As much as I love them, it has been a while since I've paid attention to what is happening on their plates. I lost track around Kele's solo stuff last year and the only info I had on them is that they are planning an indefinite hiatus starting from July.

Regardless of what their plans are, the band is releasing their new EP The Nextwave Sessions this summer. One of the track on the EP - "Ratchet" was uploaded on Soundcloud just a few hours ago, so I felt the obligation of rushing and writing few silly lines, so that I can share the track with you. Actually, so far, I've heard it only 3 times and... it feels like something different. And I like it!
