Tokyo Police Club are easily one of my favourite bands. I listen to Champ (their latest album) two or three times a week. I post as much as I can on them, and it looks like the last week of August there will be a ton of TPC posts.
They just announced the Ten Songs, Ten Hours, Ten Days, Ten Years project. The idea here is that starting on August 24th, for 10 days Tokyo Police Club will release a cover song per day spanning from 2001-2010. They haven’t released what songs they will cover, but they did release the websites you can find the songs on and the times they will be released.
If you want to check out the full details, click on Read More to read all about it, or just come back on the 24th, I will be posting each and every song. Its going to be a busy week.
