A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of contributing to One Week One Band and wrote about my love of my favourite British band Bloc Party. For those of you not familiar with O.W.O.B., it’s a really awesome project started by this fellow named Hendrik, which features writers more talented than I waxing poetic about their favourite bands for an entire week. My first pick (The White Stripes) was taken, but I really enjoyed writing about Kele Okereke & Co. from the perspective of a fan and music journalist. The week I was scheduled to do this happened to be the same week I was (partially) covering Canadian Music Week, so I was a little lazier posting than I would have liked, but managed to talk about why I think “This Modern Love” is one of the greatest love songs of the 21st century, make a Okereke-approved playlist, and post Bloc Party’s covers of songs by Canadian and American pop stars.
