TOKYO POLICE CLUB. If The Weakerthans and OK GO had a baby.
Just stumbled upon these guys the other day. I don’t know why I never checked them out. I have heard the name come up a number of times. So I was listening to a band/album titled NOVELS (wwwokaynovels.com) (you can download the ep for free there!) (yeeah they are just giving it away) (look for a future venn review featuring them) (and even more paranthesis!) ….and realized it was a side project band by a number of different bands including the singer from Tokyo Police Club….so I gave them a try. Not bad. Tends to have that Decemberist effect on me, where I cant take it in large doses, but they have some good songs.
