Indie Song of the Week

"Talons", a new song streaming on Bloc Party's MySpace, is an extra track from the sessions that produced the middling Intimacy. In addition to being given away as a free track to those who downloaded the album, "Talons" will also be released as a single in late October in the UK. It's expected to be on the physical release of Intimacy along with other bonus material, and will also be available with digital downlods of the album from the band's site going forward, beginning at midnight tonight. To my ears-- speaking as someone who doesn't find this band particularly interesting-- it sounds very much of a piece with the rest of the new record, shouty chorus, pumped-up sound, the whole nine.
