Description

Yet another example of how Canada has become the world's leading exporter of indie rock, Ontario's Tokyo Police Club went from local party favorite to music blogger's delight in the span of a year or so. Since its debut 2008 LP, Elephant Shell, the quartet, led by singer and vocalist Dave Monks, has gone on several major festival tours, released a couple EPs, and this year dropped the well-received sophomore disc Champ. The synthy garage rock that is the group's specialty draws comparisons to the Strokes and Vampire Weekend, but there is a playfulness here all Tokyo Police Club's own, and the raw energy displayed onstage is a sight to behold. - Curtis Cartier sanjose.com
