Today I offer two of my favorite bands at various times of last year, one of which [finally!] has an album coming out. Tokyo Police Club's Elephant Shell comes out April 22.
This White Rabbits track is hot off the press. I just this morning received the latest issue of Paste and it's their "Paste presents" bonus track, recorded live in the Paste copyroom-slash-music studio. Apparently. I picture them jamming out next to a water cooler between the advertising section and the break room. Stream the track here or download below.
I'm totally stoked for the new Rabbits record already, and to see them live in Madison hopefully soon enough. I specifically remember hearing this Untitled song at one of their two stellar High Noon performances this past year. Killer track.
