Remember 2005? Remember when you heard Bloc Party's "Banquet" the first time? Wow, right? Angular, uncompromising, and entirely aggressive.
This isn't that. But, hit "save as" and then press "open" and you'll find they do share a guitar riff. Close your eyes and ignore the growling synth-hum at the bottom of the mix. The guitars are entirely Kele and Bloc Party. It is nearly identical, like that girl who looks a little like someone you used to date, and it would be creepy if it weren't so familiar. Replace the vocals with a more hard-nosed Jenny Lewis and a sing-song final movement and you've got The Hundred In The Hands.
Where does that leave us? At the same derivative train station we've been held in since the second cave painter looked to his left and thought, "I wouldn't have thought of that ... but I'm pretty sure I can follow the design." And so began a tradition of artistic borrowing. Put into my own words? We didn't start the fire. It was always burning, since the world's been turning.
That about sums it up.
