Ten songs, from ten years, recorded in ten days time. Indie Rock band Tokyo Police Club are setting out to record ten cover songs that span the best (questionably) parts of the Bush era with a look back at the 2000's. The decade that was, that wasn't, a.k.a. the decade that got us to the crazy scene we're all living through right now.
They'll record a song a day, in ten hours time (I'm sensing a ten theme here), that will be premiered at 10am PST the following day. The gift that keeps on giving, you know? Let there be ten days of Tokyo Police Club! It's Actually titled " TEN SONGS. TEN HOURS. TEN DAYS. TEN YEARS," and it runs through from Aug. 15 - 24, and involves a host of media partners, from Alternative Press to to the Onion's A.V. Club to Mashable. And more. See the schedule below for details.
“We like anything that helps us grow as a band and take on new territories and just expand our boundaries a bit. In covering songs, you learn new tools that you might want to use in your own songs – good drum fills and basslines…the trading cards of music,” said Tokyo Police Club bassist Dave Monks.
