Stream Bloc Party HYMNS

Bloc Party have been using elements of dance music in their surging postpunk for more than a decade, but those dance-music levels always seem to increase from album to album. On first listen, the group’s new album HYMNS is the bleepiest thing they’ve ever done. It’s the band’s first album in four years and their first with a new lineup that features Menomena bassist Justin Harris and YouTube-discovery drummer Louise Bartle. We’ve posted the early songs “The Love Within,” “The Good News,” and “Virtue.” And now, as Noisey points out, you can stream the whole thing below.

HYMNS is out 1/29 on Infectious Music/BMG/Vagrant.
