Tokyo Police Club, CBCRadio3 Session, Toronto, 17 May 2006

Posted in mp3, radio session at 2:30 am by rgsc

Hey there hepcats,

This one is gonna be as brief as it is awesome. As you all surely know, Tokyo Police Club’s ep “A Lesson in Crime” was one of the best releases of 2006. This is quite a feat for such a young band, particularly given that the record lasts less than 18 minutes. But in those few precious minutes they pack in several lp’s worth of rawk. It is a stunning 7 songs filled with ridiculously catchy hooks, handclaps, and visions of a postapocalypic future where we are all enslaved by robots.

Come out to Alfies on Tuesday, February 6th, to see TPC kick it Newmarket-style – it will undoubtedly be legendary. Thanks to our beloved CBC we have a little something to get your handsclapping and your toes tapping. Enjoy.

 A couple of things to note:

1. You still have time to enter the Woolly Leaves contest. Email gimmestuff.bootlog@gmail.com with your address. It is just that simple.

2. For those of you who I got all riled up about seeing Woolly Leaves with Apostle of Hustle you will have to cool your jets for a week: due to an illness the show on Feb. 3rd has been cancelled but AoH with Woolly Leaves and Chris Brown will be playing the February 10th show.  Get your tickets now, ‘case

    I was wondering.. what do you use to capture the streams for downloading? I have my eye on a couple other CBC sessions off the radio 3 site.

    What and give away all my secrets!?!?!?!?

    Actually there isn’t much mystery to it. Typically I use the free Phonostar recorder which records off your soundcard – unless it is a real audio stream (lemme know if you want to know how to do that and i can find the link to the program i use which i don’t have in front of me now). That’s it. I listen and record and then edit and tag and share. Happy recording.
