Tokyo Police Club (Daytrotter Session)
Tokyo Police Club have certainly been making the promotional rounds recently, still relentless touring their latest LP Champ.

blogTO Indie Exclusive: Infernal Arms - "Mourning Star"
This week's indie exclusive comes from Toronto's own Infernal Arms, a talented rock group made up of friends - most of which went to school for audio engineering. Jason Turriff, Steve Witt, Spencer Arnott, and Dan Miotto combine their talents in the spirit of rock and roll, with a touch of heavy punk, and a sense of melodic beauty in the lyrics. If you like what you hear on "Mourning Star", head over to Infernal Arms' Bandcamp and snag a copy of their self-titled EP, which is available for digital download by naming your own price. [MP3]
