Bloc Party Live At KCRW In one of the loudest live sessions in recent memory — that's a compliment, of course — Bloc Party tears through its great new single, "Octopus." It's a driving, punk-infused dance track.

Favorite Sessions

KCRW Presents: Bloc PartyKCRW

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.

Here's the band's performance of "Octopus."
