Today's Hotness: Mahogany, Bloc Party, Bob Mould

>> Not much of a surprise, but today futurist design-poppers Mahogany received here big snaps from Philebrity. The glowing write-up is rife with delicious media, foremost among them being this full album stream of the band's new set Connectivity!, which we reviewed here. Additionally, the item links to video at YouTube (including the clip of "1+1=3 Or More" above) and stunning photos from Mahogany's co-CD release party with Relay at Philadelphia's newish Johnny Brenda's. All worth checking out. We are about to update the MP3s on our review of Connectivity!, so make sure to keep checking the link above.

>> In case you slept through yesterday, Brit quartet Bloc Party's sophomore set is titled A Weekend In The City and it will be released Feb. 6 on Vice, which confirms information we first reported here. A single "Prayer" will precede the record on Jan. 29. Click through to this Billboard piece for the full-track listing. We reviewed Bloc Party's July 29 show at Boston's FleetBancBostonMicroDisneyHalliburtonCarlyleGroup Pavilion here.

>> Bob Mould and Brendan Canty Monday went into the studio to begin work up on the follow-up to Mould's 2005 set Bodysong, according to this post at the Boblog.

>> We missed the news the first go 'round, but Pun Canoes here points to Pfork reportage about a planned new record from post-punk gods Gang Of Four. We wrote about Gang Of Four's May 2005 Boston show here.

>> Congrats to :: clicky clicky :: contributor Jay Kumar for not only finishing the Chicago marathon in under four hours, but also making a strong bid to be Stephen Colbert's Indian friend.
