When Bloc Party performed this live session for KCRW, it was the first time any of us had heard songs from the band's latest album, Four, aside from the single "Octopus." While "Octopus" is a driving, punk-infused dance track similar to Bloc Party's previous work, the rest of Four seemed more influenced by '90s rock and metal. It was one of the loudest live sessions KCRW has hosted in recent memory, and that's a compliment.
