bloc party w/ chromeo (+ new video)

I was a little confused about not seeing that Bloc Party EP [that's them, at right, Paul Frank-ing it out] on more US best-of-2004 lists (as a singles collection, it slayed, and this band is not slowing down). But whatever, 2005 is going to be something else entirely, methinks. Do pay attention to this band.

Bloc Party has scheduled UK shows with New Yorkers Chromeo for March, which I find to be thrilling and weird. (I mean, aside from Bloc Party being in the Vice stable now, but strangely still not out loud. hmmm) Straight from the Bloc Party site:
We're chuffed to announce our our latest brace of UK headline shows:

01.03.05 Edinburgh Liquid Room
02.03.05 Sheffield Leadmill
04.03.05 London Forum
05.03.05 Portsmouth Pyramid

We have also persuaded one of our favourite acts from across the pond Chromeo to come and open for us on all these shows. Make sure you arrive early to check them out.

Postscript: Just noticed a video for "Tulips" (UK b-side to "Little Thoughts" and US 12" out on Dim Mak in a couple weeks). Apparently it's exclusive there.
