music from around the globe through its proprietary “scrobbling”
technology.  The music site also offers an
expansive array of content including artist information, tour dates,
discographies, charts, trends and fan interaction.  Last.fm users are also avid concert-goers which
presents an opportunity for the site to align its name and resources with some
of their listeners’ favorite bands and venues.
 
           

For a
band that burst on the scene with an ecstatically received 16 minutes of music
(2006's A Lesson In Crime EP) followed in rapid fire succession by additional
EPs and singles (Smith, “Your English Is Good”) and a debut album (2008’s
Elephant Shell) all in under two years time, you’d think 26 months between
albums would be an interminable wait. And it might well have been for Tokyo
Police Club, had they not toured relentlessly in support of that first album
through August of 2009, and started writing new songs virtually the second
their previous record was put to bed.
 

So the
nine month gap between the close of that tour and the June 8 release of Champ,
Tokyo Police Club’s second full length album and first for the mom and pop
label, has been anything but boring or unproductive. Quite the opposite in
fact: The Newmarket Ontario quartet ended up happily immersing itself more
fully in its craft than ever: Greg Alsop (drums), Josh Hook (guitar), David
Monks (vocals, bass) and Graham Wright (keys/percussion) challenged and
redefined their songwriting and performing chops and techniques from day one of
pre-production, and, together with producer Rob Schnapf (Beck, Elliott Smith),
ultimately created the defining record of their career to date. 
 

Two Door Cinema Club hail from just outside the Northern Ireland town of Belfast. The trio’s story began just three
years ago when Alex Trimble (vocals), Kevin Baird (bass) and Sam Halliday
(guitar) studied music together in school. Experimenting with electronic beats
and an attraction to rhythmic melodies, the music-mad trio’s debut album fizzes
with invention and sparkling tunes. Rooted in rock and pop with elements of
electronica, the sum is greater than any “indie electro pop.”  The band
quickly became noticed in their homeland of Ireland
and the neighboring UK and
with immediate acclaim from radio and press they were soon asked to support
indie powerhouses on tour such as Grammy Award winning band Phoenix,
Florence and
the Machine, Foals and more. NME, an early champion of Two Door Cinema Club, describe their impressive live show as,
“…herky, it’s jerky, it’s mile a minute, it’s everything we love about guitars
and boys.”
